We are excited to have successfully launched a social media lifestyle brand in Nigeria and we hope to build the Sowambe! brand across Africa.
Many thanks to all our sponsors and partners for making things happen.
Our goal at Sowambe! is to promote trends and talents in Africa’s emerging digital media industry.
We started by launching the first ever Social Media Awards in Africa and here are the winners from the Nigerian edition. We were a little bit ambitious, so we dared ourselves to hold similar awards in South Africa, Kenya and Ghana.
We didn’t get up to the required nominations per category, even though we got media exposure from some of the best media sites in South Africa.
Hey, we know what you’re probably thinking…yeah, we’ve learned our lesson: Charity begins at home.
So we’ve decided to build our brand first in Nigeria, before taking it Africa-wide.
We’ll be launching the Sowambe! Magazine soon, featuring celebs, brands and influential people using social media. The magazine will also feature latest trends in social media and how you can make the best use out of social media tools in various endeavours of life.
We’re also releasing social media surveys for individuals and corporate brands in order to get an overview and analysis of how social media is being used in Nigeria.
Now here comes the best part
If you’ve ever had a challenge with finding the official twitter, facebook and youtube accounts of brands and celebs, Sowambe! would make it very easy to find these.
Are you thinking what we’re thinking?
