Yebo features educative, inspiring and entertaining narratives about Africans, their overcoming spirit and aspirations for the future.
Africa 24 Media has announced the official launch of the continent’s first all factual video-on-demand platform Yebo. The platform offers authentic stories from more than 30 different African countries to stream for free.
The content, which includes shows, documentaries, and features from across the African continent, has been curated over the last 12 years by Africa 24 Media’s team of experienced journalists. Yebo aims to capture the diversity and creative energy of Africa.
Yebo has an android app available on the Play Store. Any downloaded content on the platform can be watched offline within a period of 30 days.
Making the announcement, Africa 24 Media founder and CEO, Asif Sheikh, said: “For two decades I was away from home, studying and working in North America. While there, I constantly craved for news back home, sadly, all we got at the time were stories of a continent ravaged by war, corruption and disease. Most of these stories were told by foreign journalists. When I came back, I found amazing stories that were not covered by the international press and that gave me the inspiration to allow more of our people to tell these stories.”
