SMILE! WINK! KISS! Let us introduce you to the world’s first Afro Emoticons, courtesy of Oju Africa. In fact, the actual word ‘Oju’ means ‘faces’ in the Yoruba language from Nigeria.

Designed from a dream of digitally uniting Africa, the Afro Emoticons are addressing the need for techno-diversity (#EmojiEthnicityUpdate) – while sharing African funk, soul and smiles with the world.

They’re ready to use on Android platforms, as well as IOS any day. And let’s face it. With celebrities like Miley Cyrus becoming increasing vocal about the need for a more diverse range, why wouldn’t you?
