Titled "KUTOKA NAIROBI," which translates to "From Nairobi" in Swahili, the fourth issue of WAUZINE delves deep into the compelling narrative of our identity and its intertwining relationship with the environments we live in. Nairobi, a city renowned for its dynamic urban landscape, seamlessly fused with its rich traditional heritage, becomes the canvas for a kaleidoscope of unique stories that ignite nostalgia and evoke sense of belonging.
At the helm of this issue is the multi-talented Iona McCreath of KikoRomeo, who wears multiple hats as the Photoshoot's Creative Director, Stylist, and Features Editor.
