OJUAFRICA / MAURITIUS:  AN AFRICAN SMILE, 2015 As Africans, we celebrate patriotism and pride in everyone and everything African. We love Africa and we pride ourselves on being African. Africa as a continent is a powerful force, culturally, financially and socially, but has been overlooked for decades. Oju needed to remedy this oversight. We Africans need a voice in today’s modern world, in the computer-driven present and future: an African voice that supports all our diverse cultures and brings to life all our emotions, passions and warmth as a continent. We are not African because we are born in Africa, we are African because Africa is born in us. – Chester Higgins, Jr. Oju represents this new generation that believes in Africa’s future. A generation that believes in what Africa can be. Evoking Oju’s dream for our continent: a digitally united Africa. Oju’s aim is to inspire the world; Africa has a strong, proud voice – all 1.1 billion of us. Our revolution is liberating Africans from digital exclusion. Sharing our soul, funk and our unparalleled African smiles with the world. Oju should be shared and shared alike... Oju follows global trends but is differentiated by our African voice. Oju aspires to strengthen our digital African-ness and include Africans in the world’s rapid digital progress. We believe Oju can help to share our positive ‘can-do’ African spirit and to connect everyone globally. ‘It’s our time’. Join our African journey. Everybody smiles in the same language. 24  BELONGING
