Abiola Oke - Africa soars with Abiola Oke | Emirates Airline

  • Published on Mar 28, 2019
  • We are celebrating the spirit of Africa with a new campaign that tells the stories of pioneering individuals from different parts of the continent. Paying tribute to a new generation of African disrupters who are making their mark globally across music, fashion, literature and the arts, the campaign celebrates the cultural renaissance taking over Africa. The short films produced by the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) for Emirates, tells the stories of unique individuals from different parts of the continent. Poised to become cultural ambassadors for Africa to the world, they share a common passion to bring their global exposure and influences to their own local journeys, as they discover what it means to be ‘home’.
    Meet Abiola Oke, who left New York and a career on Wall Street to return to his hometown Lagos, Nigeria, as the CEO and Publisher of OkayAfrica - a digital media platform - at the age of 31. His business is dedicated to African music, film, culture and entertainment.

    This was a brilliant watch, and such a positive look into the people in Africa ultimately moving to change the narrative in Africa. As an African born and bred in London this really touched me. Africa is a great continent, more than its history of violence and corruption. It’s great to show stories of people who are moving to change the tides in a positive way. Thank you for this Emirates 💖

    Emirates lovers, you might want to pay attention or rewatch the video - it is about Nigeria (and Africa), not Emirates. Kudos to Emirates for sponsoring, but they are not the subject. I love Nigeria.
