The Nigerian tech space began getting a massive boost around a decade ago, and our #BellaNaijaMCM this week Bankole Oluwafemi has been a leading figure in reporting tech-related stories.

Bankole, in 2013, founded TechCabal, a platform which prides itself as one which is “leading Africa’s tech conversation”. It shares information on innovation, technology and startups in Nigeria and Africa.

He had worked in media and has experience in social media consulting prior this. He’s also been blogging extensively in tech before starting TechCabal.

A year after TechCabal, Bankole co-founded Big Cabal Media, a “digital media company creating super-engaging content that African youth audiences love.”

“We lead the most engaging conversations around culture, innovation, entrepreneurship, entertainment and all the things that matter to the youth today,” it says on its website.

Some of its brand include TechCabal, Zikoko, and Radar.

Zikoko is the laid back, fun platform where Africa’s youth audiences can get entertaining content, as well as content that concerns their everyday lives.

Radar is described as “a forum where the African tech community can discuss, share ideas and make connections.”

TechCabal recently launched Tech Women Lagos, a portrait series and exhibition of Lagos’ tech women with the aim of showing “show the next generation of women and girls that careers in technology are possible and diverse, and that there is space for them within the industry.”

Bankole has created, and is creating something more amazing in Nigeria’s media and tech space, and we’re rooting for him.
