Africarare: the African metaverse opens up to the world

JOHANNESBURG–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Africarare (, Africa’s first metaverse has opened up to the world and is poised to unleash African creativity and connect Africa to the global digital economy. At a recent event in Johannesburg, plans were announced for the commercialization of the 3D virtual reality experience, which takes place in Ubuntuland, a virtual world that marries creativity, cryptocurrency and commerce.

Firstly, virtual land is now available for purchase and development either through private sales or on public markets NFT, MTN, Africa’s largest multinational mobile telecommunications company Africarare, having already joined the space by securing a 12×12 village (144 plots of virtual real estate), on which to establish its visibility. Bernice Samuels, MTN Group Director, said: “This is an exciting time for us as we lead businesses across the continent to enter the metaverse market. »

Additionally, the Austria-based World Data Lab (WDL) has acquired a 6×6 village in Ubuntuland where they will grow their presence and connect with other leading organizations. WDL plans to use this collaboration to help improve the quality of life of Africans and raise awareness on key impact topics through virtual initiatives that include developing a data science metaversity, opening up a consumer insights hub and providing metaverse addressable market statistics and analytics board.

There will only ever be 204,642 plots of land available in Ubuntuland, made up of villages of varying sizes in various community centers. Land is positioned and priced according to a tiered value system, and made available for purchase, in limited lots.

Landowners will be able to customize their 3D land spaces, for example by hosting stores, producing resources, renting virtual services or developing games or other applications. Designated spaces will serve the community for work, play and social experiences, including state-of-the-art meeting rooms, online therapy rooms (with optional anonymity), concert stages, spaces film festival venues, learning centers and other dynamic interactive environments. And, there’s more to come, like staking, DAO (decentralized autonomous organization), and chain play to win.

World-renowned South African artist Norman Catherine has developed a unique collection of avatars for the Metaverse, which will be available for purchase as non-fungible tokens (NFTs) later this year. The eccentric tribe of Normunda is based on the artist’s signature lexicon, which has achieved record prices in galleries around the world.

Additionally, an exciting collaboration between Africarare and South African superstar Boitumelo Thulo has been announced. Popularly known as Boity, the famous TV personality, rapper, actress, businesswoman and model will launch the Boity tribe of 10,000 avatars. These NFTs will soon be available to fans, with a Boity Village in development and virtual concert plans underway.

Ubuntuland’s currency will be the $UBUNTU token, which is built on the Ethereum blockchain and available from the end of this year. Everything in Africarare can be bought, sold, or traded using $UBUNTU Tokens, including buying, developing, selling, or renting plots or villages in Ubuntuland, and worldwide purchases of goods and digital services.

Two art galleries will feature at Africarare, dedicated to showcasing Africa’s prolific creativity. The already open Mila (Swahili for ‘tradition’) gallery will host curated collections by some of Africa’s finest artists, while the Inuka (Swahili for ‘rise’) gallery will feature works by emerging African artists. Both galleries will hold various exhibitions on an ongoing basis with artworks being sold as NFTs.

On the Africarare marketplace, creators and developers can create and trade in-world assets such as land, avatars, avatar add-ons, and other goods and services that are and will be available in Ubuntuland. The market focuses on four main areas: Art, Ubuntuland, Avatars & Skins, and Digital Services. Users will also be able to trade on secondary platforms such as Opensea and others.

The Central Hub land area is reserved for Africarare’s bespoke experiences, ranging from art to education and including experiences such as galleries, live shows, stand-up comedy, video content channels, film festivals, safaris and more.

“Africarare is focused on building and uplifting Africa,” said Mic Mann, co-founder and CEO of Africarare. “Our metaverse will connect Africa to this booming arena of the global economy, drive growth and create multiple new jobs such as designers, creators and digital architects,” he explained.

“Besides Africa being our home, we are doing this because we are extremely optimistic about the continent’s future,” said Shayne Mann, co-founder of Africarare. “With Africarare built on collaborative partnerships, the possibilities for commercialization are endless,” he added.

With Ubuntuland poised to become the biggest talking point in the African digital space, it’s time to own your piece of virtual Africa!
