Launched by Orange in 2020, the “Y’Africa” TV magazine aims to promote African culture in all its diversity. The series highlights the stories of African artists through a series of portraits, and it’s back for a second season.
With our strong presence in Africa, we’re demonstrating our commitment by promoting the continent’s rich and diverse culture.
From painters to photographers, sculptors, choreographers, designers and even musicians, the African arts scene is full of young talent from a variety of backgrounds. “Y’Africa”, a contraction of “Africa Ya lelo” or “Africa of today” in Lingala, is a great way to discover it.
Through a series of portraits, each artist presents their work and takes you on a tour of their hometown.
Discover the second season
After a successful season 1, Orange is continuing the “Y’Africa” adventure with a new season of 8 episodes, available from 10 December on 15 African national channels. This season, 24 artists from 8 countries are in the spotlight: Liberia, Sierra Leone, Botswana, Guinea-Bissau, Morocco, Tunisia, Côte d’Ivoire and Senegal.
The first season of ‘Y’Africa’ was a great success. This TV series highlights the richness of cultures and the creativity of African youth.
LSeason 2 will enable us to discover talented new artists, and I look forward to hearing their stories.
It goes without saying that ‘Y’Africa’ has been very interesting, especially in its choice of talent and how they promote a creative, active Africa. From Senegal to Madagascar, Cameroon and all the other countries, it presents the undiscovered universe of our African creators to understand what motivated their love of the arts but also and above all the importance of their choices.
Looking back after several months, when I re-watch episodes from season 1, I am proud of the work accomplished. More than five hours of programming, a very coherent series as a whole, and varied and interesting stories. A high quality delivery that meets the expectations of what I’d planned.
