About Us

Wasomi is a Kiswahili word that has a range of meanings, but for the sake of this platform we shall adopt ‘the learned/ informed.

Wasomi is an arts and culture platform that seeks to document educational, artistic, cultural and sociopolitical conversations happening in Kenya and around Africa. We also seek to chat about conversations happening beyond the continent that impact on African cultural and art scene.

We seek to explore the magnificent and informative literary landscape that Africa is offering the world, by bringing you articles, discussions, interviews, commentaries, short stories, poems, book reviews and news that define what the real life is in Africa as opposed to what the uninformed world thinks it is.

Join us and engage in these conversations as we explore the beauty of this continent. In case there is a conversation you would like included, feel free to contact us.
Enjoy!
