Objects of Desire: Urbanite Christian T-Shirts by Monarki



We've always wanted to own a Jesus Christ SuperStar T-shirt so we decided to produce one for a variety of reasons: We wanted to honour our Lord because He is our Star - our hero, our icon, our saviour. We also wanted to pay homage to the outstanding, albeit controversial rock musical and lastly, we wanted to thank God for being amazingly good to us all for His mercies, grace and abundant life and for making this a super week.
This is a very special and meaningful design for us here at Monarki.
Many a time we come to a point in our lives where we feel buffeted on all sides; our faith becomes weak; we slowly drift from our source of life, joy, peace and victory. It is in times like that that we need to be reminded that God is still in control. Whenever we feel our hope deflated or we make God secondary or we become lukewarm or when we simply just need to be encouraged, we looked to Joel 2:13 - 'Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love' and were inspired to create this minimalist design that proclaims God's never-ending love for us whatever our state.

Our new 'GOD' design incorporates the mythical Sankofa bird and simply reminds us to go back to our Father for He truly loves us. We pray this design brings some comfort to the many broken souls in our city. Know that you haven't been abandoned and that all God wants is to have you return to Him. He waits with wide open arms.


Coming soon! Our take on Shepard Fairey's viral street art mashed up with John Sammis' stirring 1887 hymn, 'Trust and Obey'. Available in 'propaganda red' and 'activist black' in September, this Monarki T-shirt is sure to be a must-have in your collection. Spread the word and rule the streets for Christ

 All t-shirts (male and female cuts) cost GH¢22 each and come with a nifty gift package. So what are you waiting for?


Paulina Opoku-Gyimah says: I’m excited. These t-shirts are probably the most beautiful, most elegant t-shirts I’ve seen in a long time. Well-made and so on-point, definitely the pervading zeitgeist – these t-shirts are destined to be worn by all and not just the Ghanaian market.

I don’t know where to start ……even though I try never to get involved –I feel that with the right marketing Monarki –a collection of quality ‘Urbanite Christian T-Shirts’ can be marketed outside of Ghana –before the world starts copying it… Mind you even if they did –it wouldn’t be the same –it must be Monarki and it must be made in Ghana –Amen!!!!

I’m thinking that team Monarki have done really well –note they have managed to peak my interest –and that isn’t easy…  

Monarki now needs to build an uber professional e-commerce website that allows the likes of us to purchase their fab t-shirts in London, New York, Milan –wherever.  

Team Monarki needs to clean up their Facebook fan page –and only have the few images I have above in their photo section, and maybe have a folder for their friends & fans… but try to keep every image on there [FB]-neat, elegant, uncluttered and on-point.

They need to use only real models, mua’s, hairstylists, and photographers etc to produce all images. They need to produce some press releases –and be brave and write to all not just publications in Ghana but South Africa, UK, USA, Canada, France et al with info and lovely images of their t-shirts…

And finally they need stockists outside of Ghana -see above countries again...  Anyway I waffle on… Monarki’s t-shirts start from GH¢22 and are available from their shop in Osu Forico Mall, off Oxford Street (on the Papaye to Blue Gate lane), Accra, Ghana. Or you can contact them on 0266 245 235 / 054 971 8965…..
