No! Wahala Magazine Issue 1: Safe Place


No! Wahala Magazine is one of Africa’s first contemporary photography magazines championing authentic visual stories by African Creatives. The aim of this magazine is to showcase important visual stories told by African talents on and from the continent and get them seen by industry professionals. It is also a platform where Creatives can learn, be inspired, network, and better their visual storytelling skills whilst serving as a safe space where photographers can share their wins and the difficulties faced within the photography industry.

No! Wahala's first issue explores the notion of a safe place, leading individuals to question where they find their security in. During such a crazy period as COVID-19 and nationwide lockdowns, this pandemic certainly left many individuals feeling vulnerable, lost, and afraid. During times when everything around us seems to be going from bad to worse, the only thing to do is to tap into whatever it is that makes us feel guarded, this can be a thought, a memory, a person, a specific object, or a particular place/ space.

The magazine features the work of five diverse African Photographers like Kyle Malanda and her project ‘ABSENTIA’, Nelson Owoicho and his project ‘Oyálé’, Léa Thijs and her project ‘Safe House’, KC Nwakalor and his project ‘Isolating With You Malichá’ and lastly Isabel Okoro and her project ‘Sister x3’.
