The dominant neocolonial narrative of African social entrepreneurship as being necessarily dependent on
non-African expertise is a false one: there is sufficient leadership skills and talent within the continent to
address the systemic issues faced by Africans. A paradigmatic narrative shift that profiles the capabilities of
African social entrepreneurs – while also avoiding blatant tokenization – can counteract the prevailing story
that has until now excluded full participation by African-led social enterprises.
