Lu Asfaha - Creative Director 


Defar Media was imagined by creative director Lu Asfaha, who believes that Black women are hungry for fantasy and horror stories that reflect themselves. 'Defar' is Tigrinya, the main language spoken in Eritrea. It means audacious, fearless, and insolent. All the makings of a rebel. Likewise, our stories centre unique women cutting new paths for themselves, reflecting our lived experiences. We hope to be able to nurture rebellious women, and bring their stories to you. Defar Media focuses on the strange, and embraces it. We know that's where the best stories live.
