OUR STORY

The Sonjo story begins soon after the Ebola pandemic in Sierra Leone. Founder Paul Samuels and his creative collective had reached a heightened degree of discontent against the way conventional media channels had chosen to focus on the negative side of the stories that were being reported. Neglecting the rich human and cultural aspect behind some of the people’s stories.

“Being a second generation Sierra Leonean immigrant living in the UK I knew a lot of the press coverage was being fabricated, as I had family members living in Freetown and they were reporting a totally different picture.”

Paul Samuels

After years of complaining to friends and strangers about how I was fed up with the way Africa and the stories of people of the diaspora were being presented by mainstream media a close friend during a coffee meet-up challenged me to go tell a different one. Always being up for a challenge, I packed my bags jumped on the first flight to Freetown and made the short documentary ‘The Ebola Stigma Vaccine’ and Sonjo media was born. That’s our story question is, how do we tell yours?

If you are in the neighbourhood why not pop in for a coffee or just give us a call.
