‘Akpovo’, an Urhobo word, means One World.
We love telling stories, stories of humankind from an African essence - stories, on screen, on stage, in spoken word.
At SquareGlobe, we embrace the African philosophy of the union of opposites, of both/and, instead of either/or.
Through the SquareGlobe lens, we share stories of the human diaspora; Collective universal stories based on the essence of people of African descent. The themes are unapologetically candid and uncompromising because they embody our power, our value and provide us moral compass.
The stories portray love, struggles, betrayals, marital relationships, death, fractured family. They celebrate heroes, point at villains, appraise beauty. They are funny, poignant, sad, and in between. For these are the universal, timeless experiences of humankind.
