New Tap Magazine Issue is out now

Dear TAP family, a new issue of Tap Magazine is out now. Following the huge success of the last issue and all the positive feedback we’ve received since then, it is with great honor that we bring you another issue of The African Perspective Magazine. Issue number 8 takes it a notch higher where rich and premium content is concerned and I’m sure that you will all be thrilled after reading.

Within its pages, you’ll find informative pieces on entrepreneurship, education, lifestyle, fashion, politics and even a special feature on a cool project that some of the diaspora youths are working on.  You can read the issue online for free here, as well, you can purchase a print copy here.

Tap magazine issue 8

On the cover is President Barack Obama, the son of a Kenyan man who went on to become the 44th President of the most powerful nation in the world. We chose this cover story for two reasons. First- to pay homage to Obama for his extraordinary triumphs of becoming the first African-American president of the US and in the process inspiring millions of African youths with his message of hope.  Second- as Obama's presidency narrows to a close and his legacy among Africans continues to be divided, we wanted to dig deeper and hopefully ask much more meaningful questions that we should be reflecting on. Questions like, what is it that made us think that Obama owed Africa and Africans anything when he was never the president of "Africa”? Are we still suffering from a messiah/savior complex?

This issue also follows up on the travel series from previous issues and brings you an Accra night-life experience. For the business minded, we’ve also featured a long and detailed article on how you can get into the trillion dollar African agribusiness industry. Among many other premium articles, this issue also showcases how a group of young African diaspora youths are connecting with their roots with impact. It is rich from page one to the end, so make sure you peruse through it all.

On behalf of the whole TAP team, I’d like to extend our sincerest gratitude to everyone who has contributed to this issue in one way or the other. Special thanks go to JP Iwouha, Yvonne Nyawira, Brandon Wint, Thuli Mac, Fana Makonen, Eden Hogan, Gabriel Myers Hansen, Katlego Molaolwa, Siya Beyile and Dennis Ansah for Designing and illustrating this issue’s awesome cover.

Last but not least, I want to thank all TAP enthusiasts once more for your constant love and support. More than ever before, we are committed to telling the African story to the world: Unbiased, Uncensored and from a Balanced perspective.

Enjoy your 8th issue and PLEASE share with your friends and family!
