Omami's Studio was founded by Mimi Jammeh (a.k.a 'Omami') on the 19th of June, 2020. Originally of West/North African descent, she wanted to create a platform by and for Black people that showcases, celebrates and honors Pan-African artistry. During a time of revolution and awakening it is high time Pan Africans take ownership of their creations, and Mimi felt impassioned to help do so. As a storyteller herself she was tired of the same old narrative of Black contributions being stolen, highjacked and missrepresented and wanted to be the change to cultivate a safe creative space for her community. We believe her exact words were, "If nobody else is gon' do it, b*tch I'm gon' do it." Thus was born the persona of Omami, a figure steeped in mysticism chosen to represent that which connects us as a diaspora: our proud, unwavering spirit. The Omami's Studio team currently consists of two Black women working diligently from our studio space. You can find out more at our website: https://omamistudio.com/
The long term goal of the studio is to produce everything from feature length films to hosting events, but until then we are acting as a recording studio, film and photography studio and creative rental space. The money raised will be used to get us off the ground by way of acquiring the rest of the necessary equiptment and materials to support our artists in their creation of projects in whatever way we can.
