In this issue:


  • The Stack Award-winning story on ‘Versage’ knock off culture in Nigeria. Allyn Gaestel travels from Lagos to Guangzhou in search of the people creating a type of fashion that begins with Versace and other high end brands, but establishes itself as utterly Nigerian
  • Rolling deep with South Africa’s creative crews. Meet Dear Ribane, The Sartists, Cornerstore, Iqhiya and The Brother Moves On
  • Young Fathers is a Mercury Prize-winning band, and they tell Nataal about their genre-defying sound and journey from meeting in a sweaty Glasgow nightclub to sharing stages with Massive Attack
  • Lorenzo Vitturi’s latest photo book dissects the many layers of commerce and chaos that make up Balogun market in Lagos. Using photography, ephemeral sculptures, textiles and collage, he expresses the complex interplay of urbanisation, capitalism and human endeavour that come together in this place
  • The confessions of a choirboy turned macabre and tender, soon-to-be star. We interview the New York-based musician serpentwithfeet about his beautifully idiosyncratic debut album, Soil
  • And the Gallery section of the magazine is dedicated to Nataal’s annual New African Photography exhibition at Red Hook Labs, Brooklyn. One featured artist is Ruth Ossai, who is fast gaining recognition for her empowering portraiture of Nigerian communities
