Afropolitain Magazine

AFROPOLITAIN is a new multicultural and multidimensional magazine highlighting the heritage of African culture. We aim to bring attention to the people and lives that represent the modern day experience of Africans and the diaspora. The goal of AFROPOLITAIN is to synchronize the multidimensional influences and expressions of modern African culture. Indeed, our cultural origins resonate today in many arenas: art, gastronomy, music, design, business ... and more. We at AFROPOLITAIN believe that, whether anonymous or famous, the unique and original stories of members of the diaspora deserves the world’s attention. Our goal is to facilitate the discovery and appreciation of the many faces of African diaspora. The AFROPOLITAIN takes a fresh look and brings a new tone to the way black culture is presented. It is a mirror and a link between Africa, Europe and the Americas.

Knowing who we are is key! Discover the story of Queen Abla Pokou in our latest issue! Out NOW!

The story of Queen Abla Pokou goes hand in hand with the creation of the Baoulé tribe of Côte d’Ivoire and is a reminder of the importance of the mother figure in this region and the entire Akan culture. Queen Abla Pokou was born a princess in the Ashanti kingdom of Ghana and was the niece of the great King Osei Tutu, founder of the Ashanti Empire. In the Ashanti culture, succession is matrilineal, so when King Osei Tutu died, it was Dakon, the brother of Queen Abla Pokou who took power. Unfortunately, disagreements after his nomination led to war and Dakon was killed. The Queen, fearing for her life, decided to flee the kingdom with her court.

La légende de la reine Abla Pokou va de pair avec la naissance de la tribu Baoulé en Côte d’Ivoire. Elle nous rappelle la prépondérance de cette figure mère dans cette région du pays et dans la culture Akan tout entière. La reine Abla Pokou, née princesse du royaume Ashanti (Ghana), était la nièce du grand roi Osei Tutu, fondateur de l’empire Ashanti. Les règles de succession de la culture Ashanti étant matrilinéaires, c’est Dakon, le frère d’Abla Pokou, qui hérita du pouvoir à la mort du roi Osei Tutu.Malheureusement, des désaccords peu après sa nomination déclenchèrent une guerre qui se solda par la mort de Dakon. La reine, craignant pour sa vie, décida de fuir le royaume avec sa cour.

This smile! @boriskodjoe

“I’m comfortable with my position as the head of the household, the father of Sophie and Nico and the husband of Nicole."- Boris Kodjoe

It’s 9:30am on a brisk fall morning in Brooklyn. After navigating the road closures of downtown Williamsburg, I walk into a dimly lit 4th floor studio loft to find a camera crew, stylists and other staff prepping for a photo shoot. I had barely settled in, when the towering 6’4” actor, activist and perennial staple of the “Sexiest Man Alive” list — Boris Kodjoe, walks in wearing all black...
