It was only a matter of time before North African culture made its way in to the mainstream. For a long time, the region—made up of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, and Mauritania—lived under the shadows of a singular blanketed ‘Arab’ identity.

A quick scroll through Instagram and you’ll find yourself swiping through countless meme pages celebrating North African culture. We’ve rounded up our favourites.
