This morning we spoke with three guests from Site C Khayelitsha who created their own brand called Afrka Way. The three creators are lifelong friends from childhood and are proud to represent their hometown.
Their brand, Afrka Way, makes all kinds of clothing. They wanted the word, Africa in their name so that anyone wearing a piece of clothing from their brand would feel Africa within them when they wear it. Because the brand began within the last year, funding is still low. Despite low funds, our guests say that they continue with their brand for the love of it.
On the side, two of our guests create music as well. They work individually because they each have their own style and sound. We witnessed them ride a live beat in studio and also learned that they write poetry.
Afrka Way will showcase their brand at the Extravaganza event on the 4th of November. In the meantime, you can follow the brand on social media:
