Understand Our Brand
The Songhai logo is a Ghanaian Adinkra symbol. “NYAME NNWU NA MAWU – God never dies, therefore I cannot die”. To us, this a symbol of the perpetual existence of man’s spirit.
Songhai’s team therefore operates with this philosophy; that what we do each day must have a long- lasting legacy. Therefore, it must be done in the spirit of not only sustainability, but wealth creation.
The Songhai Empire, also known as the Songhay Empire, was a trading state which covered most of modern West Africa. From the mid-15th to the late 16th century, Songhai was one of the largest African Empires in history. Its capital was the city of Gao, where the Songhai people settled since the 11th century, or as early as 800CE. The Songhai state has existed in one form or another for over a thousand years.
The Songhai Africa Group chooses to adopt the name of the Songhai as a means of bringing together the Culture, Trade, and People of Africa, and reminding us that Political barriers can be seen as relatively insignificant barriers to our flourishing success as a continent, if, and only if, we celebrate, communicate, work and trade together.
