Far too long on far too many occasions Africans have been mere participants in commercial activities that are about them. Africasokoni seeks to deliberately give agency and control back to the African, be he or she the buyer or the seller. Sokoni is a Swahili word for marketplace. The startup is therefore looking to redefine shopping in Africa. The startup has secured $620,000 in funding from Ebrima Fatty - the founder - and George Koranis. They also signed a partnership with Xingye International Development company China.
