The AKADi Magazine is inspired by the meaning ‘source of light’ in the Ghanaian language Ewe.

This publication aims to shine a light on the transformative actions and inspiring experiences of ordinary individuals doing extraordinary things. The content is designed to illuminate, inform, and inspire.

The publication is biannual and covers topics including business, health and well-being, art, literature, history that are anchored around issues of social significance. We shares stories from individuals who are challenging, shaping and disrupting stereotypes about Africa and Africans through their personal stories.

AKADi explores language endangerment and its impact on Ghanaian diaspora communities; featured entrepreneur stories in tech and business, and examined various aspects of mental health and the challenges of diagnosis and treatment.

The first PDF issue here was published in August 2019 and is also available online here at AKADi Magazine.

  1. It is refreshing to always meet original posts discussing issues of relevance to modern-day African being and thinking. The presentation here reveals aspects and examines nuances not covered elsewhere with the same impact. Surely, the site has earned its place in Africana on the net. And for that, congratulations to MisBee!

  2. Ayekoo – congratulations Abena Sɛwaa! Thank you for highlighting our stories 🙌🏾💕 I’m excited to share the new magazine in my networks. Wishing you continued success!

    1. Thanks so much Kai for a brilliant post and I am glad that this amazing cover and mag cleared away those blue. You are a fantastic source of inspiration to me and so many others! The popping front cover is all down to the vision of Elisia who is a brilliant designer. Looking forward to yours! All my best MisBeee!

  3. This magazine is one of the great things that Africa needs. Great things are happening here in Ghana and Africa. In Ghana and beyond, many people do not hear about the great many things and transformation going on in the northern part of Ghana. The Magazine provides an opportunity to tell the story of the beautiful and progress northern Ghana.
