THE TOP 10 TRIBE MOMENTS FROM WE ARE AFRICA 2018

At this year’s We Are Africa – our biggest, boldest edition to date – we asked only one thing of our tribe: to show up and bring the most fun, fierce and fantastical version of themselves to Cape Town Stadium (and to Spier Wine Farm, Stellenbosch, for FUSE). Inspired by a TED talk by the fabulous Wanuri Kahiu, the theme was the beating heart of We Are Africa – and boy, did the tribe deliver on both substance and style. If you missed out – or want to relive three days of vibing, networking and dancing ’til dawn – here are the highlights, and don’t forget to share your own favourite moments using the hashtag #NotOneStory. Bring on 2019…
