Basim Dawoo - SOWT

Sowt is a digital audio network based in the Middle East and North Africa. They’re on a mission to tell more stories that connect the rest of the Africa to North Africa; a region that’s still disconnected from the continent. “As Arabs, we understand the importance firsthand, of challenging stereotypes and providing a plurality of coverage about areas of the world, often overlooked by mainstream media or stuck to cliche tropes. Challenging stereotypes and creating positive examples is a key part of our work, and working together with Africa No Filter, we are excited to produce content like this in Arabic,” said Basim Dawoo.
