…Yebo aims to be the guide of Africa through stories
WED, APRIL 01 2020-theG&BJournal- Africa 24 Media today announced the official launch of the continent’s first all factual video on demand platform, Yebo which aims to be the guide of Africa through stories.
Making the announcement the company’s Founder and C.E.O, Asif Sheikh, said 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,” Asif Sheikh said.
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, captures the diversity and creative energy of Africa. It is home to educative, inspiring and entertaining narratives about Africans, their overcoming spirit and aspirations for the future. The content on A24 Media’s Vault is exclusive, with very little external exposure, making it fresh and unique, according to Africa 24 Media.
The contents include documentaries on the history of major events on the continent, Biography of Africa’s history makers, hundreds of short stories on health, politics, sports, women and children, adventure and many more and weekly magazine shows.
