@TVYangu are excited to inform you that ‘TV Yangu’ has emerged as a finalist for the ‘Best Use of Social Media by Start-Up/MSME’ Award under the ‘Institutional Category’ of the 2014 Social Media Africa Awards #SMAA2014.
Winners will be announced and honored at the Award Ceremony tagged ‘Night of Virtual Wonders’ billed to hold in Lagos-Nigeria on January 24, 2015.
Team Yangu would like to thank you for the amazing support during the voting stages of the Social Media Africa Awards 2014. We are grateful for the support we received from friends and family online, strangers and different Zimbabweans who just responded to our call. Voting only accounted for 50% of the overall score.
On the SMAA website we where mistakenly categorized as being from Kenya. That won us a bit sympathy from Kenyan’s. Yangu means the same in Shona as it does in Shwahili. That mistake may have been a blessing in disguise as we have found new friends in East Africa.
As a startup which is barely a year old we are very excited about representing Zimbabwe at a continental show case. Being the only Zimbabwean company to emerge on the list means we are not only carrying our brand but have a national duty to raise our flag high. That is a responsibility we take seriously.
We are looking forward to travelling to Nigeria and SMAA has already started processing the paper work This is the beginning of bigger and brighter things in 2015.
