BLM Emoji

As an emoji app for African Americans, during this difficult last few months, we’ve obviously added BLM emoji to the app. It can’t be said louder and prouder, but BLACK LIVES MATTER. To help you bring that message across to whoever needs to hear it, we’ve made it easy for you with some great black lives matter sticker designs.

It’s been a bit of a dream so far. It’s been about two and a half years now since we launched the AfroMoji app in its initial form. It was a very simple app with a bunch of emoji with afros. We soon realized that people liked our app and started adding in new features and sticker designs.

AfroMoji 100.000 Downloads On Android

AfroMoji has officially passed 100.000 downloads on our Android Google Play Store listing. It is the second time AfroMoji achieves the 100k download mark after first launching under the Afmob banner and being removed by the Google Play Store.

It is quite remarkable to get this many downloads on a small emoji sticker app but clearly shows that there is a big need for an African American focused niche app. The app allows users the natively share black emoji stickers to their contacts.

Weekly or bi-weekly AfroMoji will add new sticker designs to its app to continue serving a growing user base. We hope you will celebrate this small success with us by sharing our app with your friends and family. We’re sure that they will enjoy it as much as you do. Spread the word!

African American Emoji!

We got the idea just about a year ago. We thought, with so many different emoji apps out there why is there no good app with African American emoji? An app that is easy to use and has relevant emoji stickers for the African American community. So we decided to create it. See for yourself, tell us what you think!

Getting the app right

It was not easy to develop the app in such a way it was easy to use and even today we are still learning how people prefer to use our app. For example, we missed that people want to use our emojis to respond on Facebook, however, our app only supports Messenger.

Many other people have indicated that they would prefer to have a keyboard app where they can access our emojis within the keyboard rather than going to a stand-alone app.

Why African American emoji?

The African American population is enormous and has often felt excluded in the digital/tech space. Many apps and websites don’t take their culture and preferences into account. So felt that we could make a difference in this space. So we started making African American emoji that actually looks like you!

Dab Emoji!

It has been one of the most requested emojis in the last year or so: the dab emoji! With the dab being a very popular expression amongst young people at the moment, it would only make sense if we could use this way of communicating through chats as well. That’s why we introduced our own dab emoji sticker. See for yourself, tell us what you think!

Online petition for the dab emoji

Someone has actually taken this a step further and filed an official petition on change.org in order to get Apple to add an official dab emoji to the system default emojis. We certainly support that cause!

The dab has originated in Atlanda by an artist called Skippa Da Flippa. It then really became mainstream in 2015 when Jason Derulo taught James Corden on his show. America never looked back since and is still dabbing all the way!

Getting arrested for dabbing!

The dab might seem like an innocent “dance”. The authorities in Saudi Arabia disagree. In 2017, Abdallah Al Shaharani was arrested for doing the dab at a music festival. The National Committee for Drug Control says that it “alludes to weed and other illegal substances”.
