aKoma

How do we create a megaphone to make the narratives of Africa come alive?

What is Akoma

Led by Zain Verjee and Chidi Afulezi, Akoma is a community of creators, influencers, storytellers and audiences sharing diverse narratives on Africa and its diaspora. The Akoma platform, which is simple, elegant and powerful, allows this community to create, consume and connect - capturing the energy of Africa and the diaspora.

WHAT TRUNK DID

Trunk developed a CMS website Ghost technology base to customize the platform with a new theme along with new front end and administrator functionalities. The platform’s UX prioritizes simplicity and elegance. Users are able quickly to share photos, thoughts and videos in addition to incorporating social media functions like Like and/or Share content as desired.

Trunk continues to assist in the upkeep and maintenance of this platform
