For many years, Africa has been discriminated, underrated and looked down upon. Once the continent started picking itself up, so did the people. Just like the Phoenix rising from the ashes, many African countries sought to change the narrative forced on by Western culture and influence. As the people took control of a once colonialist continent, many industries grew and developed with time.


Some of the more remarkable industries include the technological sector, the surge of the online-internet industry and the ever growing social media dominance. Amidst the Covid-19 Pandemic, many African's utilized their advantage in this space to change the way many conduct their business and share information with the help of social media and the internet to reach wider populations. 

The Africa Rising podcast was developed and launched in February 2021 and is hosted by Alykhan Hajee. It features prominent guests who work in their respective fields and incorporate technology and social media to change how they plan, manage and produce their projects. This podcast aims to educate, guide and connect students with industry professionals, as well as promote and showcase Africa's potential to the world.
