Isn’t SiliconAfrica like any other blog?
No. We are not in the business to please advertisers in order to make money but to change lives in Africa, to empower our people to become self-reliant, to challenge the state quo.
We received hundreds of messages every months from all around the world giving us hope and faith in our endeavor.
Here below are few of them.

“I have just listened to your interview on `The People`s Voice` and am so pleased to discover the content of SiliconAfrica. I have been writing a book about the underdevelopment of Africa and have found there is an even greater cover-up in the African media, even greater than the cover-up/silence in European media. So to find your site is fantastic. ” – Pippa Lawton
“I used to think i was the only one in the world who viewed Africans as consumers and not the masters of their destinies. As an Entrepreneur myself, I see so many gaps for wealth creation and development with employment opportunities for African youths. SiliconAfrica, keep it up. I must say that i was very impressed upon reading this article regarding profitable start-up ideas in Africa that you published in 2012. Your insight definitely empowers me as a young born and raised African.” -Michael Onukwuli
“I am impressed by the information I receive from SiliconAfrica.com, a much needed platform for information today.

I would be glad to join you in any endeavors for training entrepreneurs as a trainer.” – Lacine Camara

Don’t stop talking plssssss.” – Sandra Onarii Opusunju
“Thanks once more Mawuna for this stimulation and empowerment. You need to go on air with this brother, more people should become aware. We need strong African Presses that will serve solely to debunk the lies of Western press, and also go further to bring forward rich and inspiring information such as this to all of Africa. You can ask for funds and I will give without thinking! I salute you all my fellow Africans. Thanks again Mawuna” – Thomas Ngonde
“Since I started browsing the web whenever I read a good article I try to share with my friends, talk about the article, discuss about in the occasions but never tried to write to the author (I am lazy!). This time I must write.
After reading two of your articles, I just couldn’t do my ordinary tasks rather busy on thinking and sharing with friends.
Thank you very much for the invaluable information. Please keep on feeding with such priceless information to wake up others. You better run faster, if you can write books, before you die. I wish to join your planned school I am sure you gonna have it by 2017. Thank you very much.” – Mezene Worku
