About Usanii

What makes us different

/ usanii: / swahili word for art

Usanii provides Kenyan artists with tools to monetise their creativity

We provide artists with the freedom to follow their passions so we can share their stories, preserve their history, and promote mutual understanding. This is possible through a few simple actions: We let them create the art they love. We provide an online and offline community for them to connect with fans. And we enable them to earn a great living from it.

We recognize that artists play a vital role in shaping a country's culture. Unfortunately, many talented artists in Kenya do not have the means to monetize their work. Usanii is the solution, providing creative individuals with the opportunity to earn a living by doing what they love.


Usanii isn't just a platform, it's a community. Empowering African artists to pursue their passions while earning a sustainable income.
