The 77 Percent: The Magazine for Africa's Youth

The African continent is brimming with young people waiting to make their mark on the world stage. But do they feel empowered enough to spark real change? We put this question to young Sierra Leoneans. Our resident rapper Killa Ace speaks out on the underappreciated youth and we meet some of Africa's rising young influencers. Plus, we explore Accra on e-bikes and kick back and relax in Bujumbura.
