All About South African Based Chimurenga News Media

South African based Chimurenga news media's motto -Who no know go know- was made famous by Nigerian Afrobeat activist Fela Kuti.

Chimurenga magazine founded by Cameroonian Editor Ntone Edjabe in 2002Struggle for Freedom or Chimurenga in Zimbabwe Shona language 
is a Pan-African publication of culture, art and politics based in Cape Town. The magazine was described in 2012 by a British writer as "better than The New Yorker." 

Founded by Cameroonian Editor Ntone Edjabe in 2002, it provides an innovative platform for free ideas and political reflection by Africans about Africa. 

The magazine is based in Cape Town, South Africa and in 2011 won the prestigious Prince Claus Award which is given annually to individuals, groups and organizations for their outstanding achievements in the field of culture and development. 

Edjabe says “It's a smart mix of fiction, reporting, essays, manifestos and art, all pegged to a vision of the pan African.” Chimurenga is published sporadically, usually twice a year with 14 African writers visiting 14 African cities to explore the complexities of Africa’s different urban landscapes.

One person’s truth is another person’s lie; Xenophobia is the unreasoned fear felt to be foreign or bizarre. The Chimurenga Chronicle, takes on the form of a newspaper backdated to the week of May 11 – 18, 2008, the period marked by the rash xenophobic violence in South Africa that is occurring to this day April 2015.

Who No Know Go Know- is a song by the legendary Afrobeat artist Fela Kuti

Chimurenga’s motto “Who No Know Go Know” is a song by the legendary Nigerian Fela Kuti. Born Olufela Olusegun Oludotun Ransome-Kuti, he pioneered the groundbreaking form of music known as Afrobeat, a blend of jazz, funk and African rhythm and harmonies, which he used to spread his message of uniting against oppression in Nigeria. 

AfroBeat consciences were Fela Kuti gifts to the world writing lyrics that rebelled against the Nigerian government. Chimurenga founder and Editor Ntone Edjabe is also a DJ currently studying at Khoj International Artists' Association.
