DADDY Magazine is a Black-owned, Berlin-based publication that centres underrepresented voices.

We are inclusive, intersectional,
and sexy.

“DADDY’s work is multifaceted, as they also run a consultancy that informs a wide range of companies and institutions on how to better communicate with diverse audiences and talent”

“DADDY: Wie das Magazin aus Berlin unterrepräsentierte Stimmen in den Mittelpunkt stellt”
VOGUE Germany

“DADDY Magazine is reclaiming space for underrepresented voices in German media”
Friends of Friends

“DADDY, the Berlin Magazine Setting a New Standard for Inclusive Publishing”
– AnOther Magazine

“What sets DADDY apart is not only the topics it explores but also how it approaches them. First-person narratives dominate DADDY’s content – handing the stage to a wide spectrum of marginalised voices.”
- Berliner Zeitung

“DADDY Magazine: Berlin zine for untold stories and critical perspectives”
- Cee Cee Creative 

"In a saturated media landscape, DADDY is a breath of fresh pink air."
- LOLA Magazine 

"The key difference from other sites grappling with big intersectional, socio-political issues is that DADDY is keen to add lashings of humour and satire."
- Amuse | i-D VICE

DADDY Magazine

Our collective launched in 2016 with a vision to diversify the German mediascape. We centre underrepresented communities by giving our contributors the freedom to tell their stories, their way. Our intersectional magazine is led by Kemi Fatoba.

Besides our online and print magazine, we host panel talks, literary readings, exhibitions, and our annual birthday party. We've had the pleasure of hosting events with personalities like Munroe Bergdorf and Courtney Act and working with clients and partners such as Bayerische Staatsoper, Bacardi, BetterPlace Lab, D&AD, Fashion Council Germany, Museum für Kommunikation Berlin, Migration Hub Heidelberg, Museum für Kommunikation Berlin, MYKITA, Netflix, NIKE, PVH Foundation, RECONEKT, Schlingensief’s Operndorf Afrika, Soho House, Studio Olafur Eliasson, Theaterhaus Stuttgart, The Future is Africa – Christoph Schlingensiefs Operndorf Afrika, The Lovie Awards, Tenga, TikTok, and ZKM Karlsruhe. We have also collaborated with organisations such as Chicago-based OTV | Open Television to pull off bigger projects like #BraveFutures, a 48-hour intersectional film festival.

In 2020, we expanded the DADDY-verse to include an annual print magazine – a major undertaking for us and one we’re currently self-funding – because if we don’t believe in our vision, then who will? We’re still the same collective of writers, designers, and artists and our online magazine will remain a platform for amplifying the voices of those who are underrepresented in traditional media – either by launching/elevating writing careers or by using our platform to highlight causes we care about. 

Our mission to amplify these voices has never been more important. If you’d like to support us as partners or advertisers, we’d love to hear from you. We also happily accept donations.
