Afro Emoticons courtesy of Oju AfricaAimed to address the need to have a more diverse range of emoticons, the Afro Emoticons have been launched by Mi-Fone Group. The African mobile giant and have been designed to be used across all Android platforms, and will shortly be released on IOS.



“We had a dream of digitally uniting Africa, liberating Africans from digital exclusion. And with the launch of the Oju Africa Afro Emoticons we are sharing African soul, funk and unparalleled smiles with the world. The launch of our Oju Emoticons has come at an ideal time where celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Tahj Mowry are also becoming increasing vocal about the need for a more diverse range of emoticons. They have even gone as far as approaching Apple with this request, yet what people don’t realise is that there is no need for anyone else to develop these when we have them available RIGHT NOW,” says Alpesh Patel, CEO Oju Africa and Group CEO of Mi-Group International Ltd.
