Published

Exercising
one of his due responsibilities as a brand ambassador and franchisee,
the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Burniton Music Group (BMG), Stonebwoy,
has, on Wednesday, September 23rd, paid a visit to Bel Beverages; a
Ghanaian producer of a variety of top of the range non-alcoholic drinks,
including the widely accepted Big Boss energy drink.

His visit
was to categorically “inspect and authenticate” the new labeling which has his
photo printed on it. The inspection
was followed by an aerial tour of the factory where variety of drinks are
produced and how every step of the production is manned by a workforce of
people passionate about delivering quality unparalleled refreshment to our
customers.

Stonebwoy and
his entourage later took a trip to Ashaiman where he was born and bred to make
some giveaways of the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) vetted and approved energy
drink, and to have an intimate interaction with the natives of the town and
most importantly, ardent followers of his craft who amassed in their numbers to
give him an experience.

Barely two months after he secured an ambassadorial deal with the non-alcoholic producing firm, Ghanaian Reggae/Ragga & Dance-hall artiste, Livingstone Etse Satekla fully purchased the owning rights of the energy drink, Big Boss. The deal saw the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards winner take control of the energy drink’s franchise and act as the president, while it’s still produced by Bel Beverages.

Facebook To Open Its Second African Office In Lagos, Nigeria

Published

on

Facebook is set to open its second Africa office in Lagos in the second half of 2021, after it opened its first Africa office in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2015., which will house a cross-section of Facebook teams from sales, policy, and communications to engineering. It is the company’s latest commitment to Nigeria—Africa’s largest internet market, after it opened a hub space in partnership with Co-Creation Hub, a leading Nigerian startup accelerator, in 2018.

It is essentially a major play for talent and proximity to an important, fast-growing market—and it is not happening in isolation: Google and Microsoft have grown their local presence in Nigeria over the past decade. In fact, Microsoft’s moves have included a $100 million commitment to build software development centers on the continent and employ 500 African developers by 2023.

With more Nigerians using Facebook than anywhere else on the continent and the suite of high-ranking executives at Facebook’s global offices being a ringing endorsement, Facebook is moving closer to where the talent is. Nigeria ranked among the fastest growing developer communities in Africa last year.

The global tech giant is in the business of serving and monetizing eyeballs, hence a more hands-on operation in Nigeria, and across Africa, and being closer to the world’s fastest-growing population of young people is a shrewd move. Africa’s population, already the youngest in the world, is expected to triple by 2100 while the rest of the world shrinks. And Nigeria will play a key role in that growth spurt by becoming the second most populous country in the world, ahead of China.
