      Sighs…only one female. We shall get there. #morediversity

    • I Love It August 29, 2013 at 8:35 PM

      As long as the one woman is capable and doing the work well, sometimes there’s no strength in numbers as you might think…

    • Ms. Jayee August 29, 2013 at 8:45 PM

      *sigh* Biola Alabi is an inspiration!!!

    • OmoMakun-www.ankarafestla.com August 29, 2013 at 10:24 PM

    • SpecialK! August 30, 2013 at 11:13 AM

      Go Biola. More Women Please. #TeamWomenThatDOtheDamnthing

    • Yescodanigga August 31, 2013 at 3:01 AM

      When more women light each other’s candles ..the more women we will find at the top. Never undermine your fellow woman …no matter what !

      • Idak September 2, 2013 at 2:16 PM

        No matter what?
        Are you kidding me? Every human should light fellow human’s light irrespective of gender. Men and women have means of playing the game to their advantage using various under hand tactics,so that gender diversity story does not fly with me.

      @Itsekiri Finest, Jumia is not an african company. It is a UAE company having different branches in certain countries with a branch also in Nigeria being led by Nigerians so they cannot qualify for these awards. This is an award recognising Africa. Konga is an indigenous company set up by a Nigerian and owned by a Nigerian fully. Let”s start recognising ours as that’s all we will have when these invested companies suck us dry and go back to their country.

      So Multichoice and MTN are Nigerian owned companies?
      Biola Alabi and Jim Ovia should dive inside lake abi?

      Tej get a life!
