Adinkra Magazine launch in Ghana

Adinkra is a rapidly growing educational and inspirational African online magazine. Based in the UK, Adinkra focuses on an underserved African publications market, and is helping both preserve and raise awareness of Africa’s rich and diverse oral history, folklore and poetry.

The first two issues of Adinkra have already attracted outstanding support and have been very well received by our communities - with the contributors, followers and readers growing rapidly each month.

Written for our readers by our readers, Adinkra encourages budding writers to write, to share their thoughts, opinions and views, creating a vibrant magazine that addresses the issues of its readers.

Adinkra offers its readers a blend of entertainment, fashion, real life stories, folklore, poetry, health, female empowerment and many more. Anowah has been interviewed about Adinkra on Rainbow Radio Ghana, The Women’s Show BEN TV London, Voice of Africa Radio, and London. Adinkra Magazine has been nominated for three EBR Awards under the categories of UK Upcoming Business of the Year; Digital Business of the Year and Publisher of the Year.

Anowah Brako, known as Efua to her family and friends is a 27 year old Ghanaian living in the UK.
