About Us

Since our inception of the business in 2015, we have sold to wholesale customers both locally and internationally. African Things aims to change the negative image associated with African manufacture and be a symbol of high-quality production while empowering Africans. We also seek to expand our reach as an online marketplace for locally manufactured African products from across the continent. A few of our past clients include The Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria, African Capital Alliance, Digital Jewels, and Google.
