The NATIVE, a brand created to identify, analyze and champion the new culture, will officially launch its website and print magazine through their first annual music festival (NATIVELAND Festival) this December, 2016. The NATIVE brand aims to work towards creating a constant dialogue between the underground and the mainstream, thus reshaping the face of popular culture.

Speaking on the brand, Founder of The NATIVE, Seni Saraki said, “Africa has been built on a foundation of censorship and conservatism from outsiders and within. Technology has gone a long way in the mission to eradicate this suppressive way of living. Africans have never had such a voice within their countries as they do now. Walls are being broken down, the youth especially now have a vocal input in the shape of the country culturally, politically and economically. This is our way of contributing and speaking out.”

The NATIVE, set to launch on the 23rd of December 2016, will be created in both print and online. They aim to be the reliable pulse of the African millennial, definitely covering music, style, art and the communities in which they are nurtured.
