Welcome to Spotlight on Africa

Updated: Feb 6

Warwick Africa Summit’s official Blog, a space to explore all things Africa, ranging from current affairs, business to culture.

This week, the spotlight is on Mojo Kojo, an African inspired streetwear label launched by Koyejo Adesanya in January 2016. With its African inspired prints and designs, Mojo Kojo is bringing Africa to the world, being stocked by Urban Outfitters along with collaborations with K Swiss up to date.

I was drawn to Mojo Kojo’s ranges, which were reminiscent of the colourful fabrics and designs you find in the Lagos street markets. I loved seeing how these patterns have been re-imagined by the brand. Mojo Kojo has kept its African heritage close to the work they do with their range being ethically sourced in Lagos. Furthermore during Black Friday, I was touched by their charity appeal where they donated the money from their sales to resources for Ado Primary School in Lagos, Nigeria. To find out more about the brand, I got in touch with the founder, Koyejo.

What was your motivation for starting Mojo Kojo?
