THE GODDESS, QUEEN, PHARAOH

My name is Erika but you will often see me go by Anaiis. I'm a graduate student majoring in Museum Studies and soon will be attending somebody's school for Egyptology. I am Afrocentric, a natural sista, a positive indivdual, etc. I love NeoSoul and R&B music, African and African American Art and Culture, etc. Also just in case you are wondering, I refer to myself as THE GODDESS because I believe I am a DIVINE individual and carry myself as such. We are all Gods and Goddesses in our own right. I hope my first blog can be entertaining, insightful, helpful, and encouraging to the masses...Anyway, enjoy

How a Ghanaian messaging app got acquired by a US-based tech firm


At a technology event in Nairobi earlier this year Ghanaian entrepreneur Robert Lamptey wowed the audience as he narrated how his chat application Saya Mobile had gained millions of users in over 30 countries in just three years.

Founded in 2011, Saya is a replacement for text messaging much like WhatsApp, but built for feature phones, and has gained users globally including countries such as India, Syria, Indonesia and Bangladesh.

At the event Lamptey explained how the company’s servers crashed several times as the application went viral with 400,000 downloads in its first two months. Saya’s was the perfect story of a small African company scaling globally.

Last month Saya was acquired by US-headquartered Kirusa, a leader in voice messaging and social media mobile apps in emerging markets. Kirusa’s portfolio of mobile services include the InstaVoice, Celeb Connect and Sports Connect apps, which are offered in partnership with more than 35 mobile carriers in Africa, India, Latin America and Middle East.

Its services are used monthly by over 80m mobile users in four continents.

Markus PR1M3 is more than an artist, he is a man on a mission. A revolutionary in the eyes of those that come across his creations. He is also a friend and a brother. Anyone who has ever met him knew there was something special about this brother whose work represents the Gods and Goddesses we all are. His work empowers those of us who rarely get proper representation in the arts and media that paints an incomplete picture of us of color. It’s a blessing to have met this young Lion who is making his mark on this world and enlightening many along the way. Check out his work on Instagram: markusprime_ and tumblr:mpr1m3.tumblr.com
