I know it’s expensive to travel across Africa. That is the reason we should travel more to create a bigger market, increase competition and costs will come down!! #AFCFTA.

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia at the African Union Headquarters - ✈️ 🇪🇹 My week in images ⚡️It's been truly a wonderful week, I've had the privilege to be invited by the African Union as a key media person to be briefed on how the African Continental Free Trade Area will work and also hear more about what the 53 presidents and delegations that make up the AU have in plan in the Agenda 2063 'the Africa we want'. 🙌 👉I was particularly impressed with the idea to unite top media people and journalists from all over the continent to speak to them - the thought process was ; ‘these people speak to people and have influence, so if we give them the right information, they'll share the right information with the people they speak to.’
Brilliant. Especially given the amount of #fakenews today.

I got to mingle and make new friends from all other : Zimbabwe, Cameroon, Niger, DRC, Rwanda, Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana, Benin, Togo and many many more.. I got to make contact (and still have direct access) to key policy makers and technical advisors on the #AfCfta and other key African initiatives.

I found out about how the media works in the different places on this continent and simply be inspired, there's a whole bunch of people that are working really really hard to do right by our continent and build it up.

Feeling totally in love 😍 with our continent right now!.

Do something wherever you are, get into manufacturing just start. Africa is changing besides globalization has already brought a lot of changes. @joshkalisa is working on Solar lights manufactured in South Africa, Yet he is from Rwanda. My Uber driver yesterday was also from Rwanda. Africa is for everyone. The first barrier we should remove is mental, it’s ok for a Nigerian to be the richest person in your country. You should go to Nigeria and try there if you have failed in your space!! #afcfta #intraafricatrade.

Did you know according to @forbesafrica magazine (2019) 8 out of the 13 black billionaires on the planet do business in Africa and out of the 8 (4) started in #Nigeria 🤔 Africa is where the opportunities are #intraafricatrade #afcfta #iatf2020.

Yesterday I attended the @maraphone launch in Durban. What do I want to share with you? Africa has a lot of opportunities, I have been fortunate enough to tour the @maraphone facility just like @cyrilramaphosa did and it’s a world Class facility. The difference is we have to stop talking about the potential Africa has, we have to start unlocking that potential. History has been made, Mara was the first one to set up a smartphone factory in Africa they did it in less than 12 months.  @ashishjthakkar said “If you want to Create Jobs in America buy an IPhone, if you want to create Jobs in Asia buy Huawei but if you are serious about Africa and want to create more Jobs in Africa buy Mara” It starts from there!! #intraafricatrade #afcfta.

Africa has a lot of opportunities in the retail service sector. The key is to build a business that can serve. With technology and social media, never underestimate the power of the consumer. Deliver your promise build a brand that offers value wherever you are whatever you are selling. Above all explore other african markets and build there too!! #intraafricatrade #afcfta #iatf2020.

A lot of us in Nigeria don’t understand the meaning of #AFCFTA - Better do your research because Africa is about to become one trade community.
.
This has nothing to do with political party. @muhammadubuhari has done well by joining other African countries to sign this agreement..

🙌✨ History has been made and is being made this week and I'm so excited to be officially part of the launch. 44 States have joined forces (22 ratified) and created a single market for Africa : The African Continental Free Trade Area is being launched this week with 2 forums. 
I've been brought in as the official moderator with my brothers : Mark Eddo and Ibrahima Cheikh Diong and I’ll personally be #representing youth and women with a specific focus on entrepreneurship and SME development. 
Being part of such an important time in history for Africa is humbling and exciting at the same time. I'm so grateful for the opportunity God has afforded me. 
Here's a small video where I explain a bit more of the details of what's going to be happening - keep checking my page for updates #TaniaInNiger #blessed #opportunities #AfricaYourTimeIsNow #HistoryInTheMaking #AfCFTA #freetrade.

That time I took our #Cameroon chocolates to the Africa Internet Summit - #AISKenya 2017 and in seconds they were all gone.

People came back asking for more. 😂

These chocolates should be more mainstream. I can't wait for the real implementation of the #AfCFTA.

#AfricaDay, I'm a day late but better late than never, yeah. Let's see, around this time last year, I was in Nairobi for the #ShapeAfrica2019 hosted by the @globalshapersnairobi Hub. 
Despite intense FOMO, I'd managed to miss the previous Shape Africa's in Ethiopia & SA. But there was no way I was going to miss this one here here in Nairobi. So I packed my Sunday best, jumped on a bus and went to discuss matters of continental importance with brilliant youth from allover the world. 
It was an absolute blast. The Nairobi Shapers (you guys rock!) had an action packed 3-day program that had us interfacing with VP Ruto at the UN offices, eating meat till we surrendered at @fogogaucho partying late into the night at @Alchemist various informative panels, a cultural night at Carnivore and nature immersion field tours. Definitely one of my 2019 highlights. 
I was also fresh from the @greatafricancaravan so I presented on a panel session about Facilitating Connectivity & Mobility in Africa with a theme of Advancing free movement of talent in the wake of the adoption of the African Continental Free Trade Area #AfCFTA. I shared my experience and insights from my road travels, thoughts on a visa-free Africa and the African passport, and gathered useful insights and connections for my plans of doing business across the continent with @muwado_ 
The 2020 Shape Africa was supposed to be in Lagos this week and I had plans of attending by doing a round road trip to add 10 countries to African countries visited and see how easier movement has become with the advancements in the AfCFTA which is supposed to be in effect by now.  But that has been delayed, Shape was cancelled & my travel plans shelved till further notice due to Covid. Sigh. 
Anyway, it is but a temporary setback and the AfCFTA dream isn't dead. Our generation needs to participate actively in that conversation because an open African will benefit us the most. Let's read up on it & start scheming for ways to take advantage of the numerous opportunities it'll present once an #OpenAfrica is a reality. That's my Africa Day message.

The legendary hip hop label Def Jam has been launched in Africa: One of the well-known clichés of the #music #business is the tension between record labels and their artists. That’s sometimes because while the few successful artists get all the glory, few labels are ever recognised as anything other than a #corporate entity. This is even more so in the #streaming age.

But a few labels captured the artistic spirit or zeitgeist of their time, names like Detroit’s #Motown or Jamaica’s Studio One come readily to mind. Another, of course, was New York’s Def Jam, whose co-founders Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin helped launch modern #hiphop to the #world in the early 1980s with genre-defining #artists including Run DMC, LL Cool J and the Beastie Boys.

While #DefJam has long since evolved into a major #multinational label #brand far from its early days in a dorm at #NewYork University’s Weinstein Hall, it still stays close to its hip hop roots and is now taking that to #Johannesburg and #Lagos, under the auspices of its parent company Universal Music Group. UMG has been expanding its base across Africa.. https://lnkd.in/d9_-Rz4
