Jambo, I’m Michael – aka Africa Freak
Join us as we celebrate wild Africa, inspiring positive change in the people we reach.
How It All Began
When I was a child, I wanted to be a pilot. Eventually, life had other plans. I grew up in Africa. This is where it all began.
Kwaheri Africa. Bonjour Europe. Overnight, my life was turned upside down.
I was confused and purposeless. Like a dhow without a sail.
“Out of adversity comes opportunity.” (B. Franklin) Indeed, that’s how Africa Freak was born.
To stay connected with my real roots, I started to share my passion for the continent on the Web.
I didn’t know it back then, but I was about to embark on a journey of a lifetime.
Fast forward and today, we’re all about “celebrating wild Africa” with the world.
