Africa 24 Media announced the official launch of Africa’s first factual video on demand platform, Yebo which aims to be the guide of Africa through stories.
Africa 24 Media founder and CEO, Asif Sheikh, announced this is a huge milestone for Africa 24 Media and the continent at large. “For two decades I was away from home, studying and working in North America. While there, I constantly craved for news back home, sadly, all we got at the time were stories of a continent ravaged by war, corruption and disease. Most of these stories were told by foreign journalists, when I came back, I found amazing stories that were not covered by international press and that gave me the inspiration to allow more of our people tell these stories.”
The platform offers powerful and authentic stories from more than 30 different African countries, most of these stories are free of charge. The content has been curated over the last 12 years by Africa 24 Media’s team of experienced journalists.
Yebo features educative, inspiring and entertaining narratives about Africans, their overcoming spirit and aspirations for the future
