Recent commissions by TRUE Africa have seen me travel to Togo and Liberia to document famous African men returning to the homeland to inspire and launch there own initiatives. Footballer Emmanuel Adebayor's (SEA Foundation) and singer / songwriter Akon's (Akon Lighting Africa).
Akon was in Liberia with 'Akon Lighting Africa'. His initiative 'aims to develop innovative solar powered solutions, that will provide African villages with access to clean and affordable sources of electricity'
Monrovia is a vibrant city in a country that in recent times has dealt with civll war, corruption, and Ebola. In these times of change, young people have found new role models and new inspiration and look forward to a positive future ahead.
The MC's, producers, and artists from Liberia's 'HiPCO' scene are not afraid to challenge the system and the government.
