Instagram has become a place for many to express themselves and get inspired simultaneously. Beyond the instant gratification element of sharing moments are the spirits and vibes that the posts embody. As a young democratic country, we celebrated 24 Years of Democracy on Friday, 27th April and even though things are moving gradually, there is a change taking place regardless.
In celebration of the 24 Years of Democracy, we compiled a list of African Instagram accounts that inspire Freedom. These accounts embody the spirit of being free through breath-taking compositions, colour theories and thought evoking captions. Photographers such as Justice Mukheli and Prince Jyesi of Ghana use photography as a medium to tell the post-independence and democracy story of millennial Africans. We tried not to keep it exclusively local because the idea of Freedom and independence is an African commonality.
