Africa 24 Media Launches Africa’s First Factual Story Telling Platform

Africa 24 Media announces the official launch of the continent’s first all factual video on demand platform. Yebo (www.Yebo.live/en/) 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.”

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.
