Nafuna completes year 9!
Nafuna enters Year 9!
As we approach the close of our 9th Year, I have had a lot of time to reflect on my journey with Nafuna and where I think we’re going. I for sure have learnt so much over the years, both as an artist and as a business owner and entrepreneur.
I spent about 10 years in the industry as a Lecturer, Artist, Video director and Creative director in Ad agencies and campaigns. This initial period taught me a lot of the technical and creative skills I needed to begin Nafuna. I, however, realised how under-qualified I was to start a company and all that comes with it. Its been a slow 9 years of migrating from working alone to a company with projects that scale up to 45 person teams as well as managing a constant team of 15.
We set off as Nafuna at first to introduce a new thinking… an alternative way of packaging our stories. We hit the online market with several shows and productions, some of which enjoyed virality, product endorsements and national awards. NafunaTV celebrates 9 years of ReImagining Africa.
Looking back at all of that and seeing how much progress we have made, I see a new direction. A larger vision. To ReImagine Africa! This is our new ongoing philosophy that we shape ourselves and our initiatives around. To produce productions and products that reshape the way Africa sees Africa! In Zimbabwe, we have go through several years of growth and more opportunity shows itself.
We look forward to a new era of producing innovative and creative solutions for our markets. We kick start our ReImagination campaign with a ReImagination Look! We picked the visual pillar of the classic Zimbabwean bird, rethought and looked at from a different perspective. With this art direction, we go forward to a new era of ReImagination!
