Tanzanian Innovator, Meck Khalfan and Nigerian singer, Seyi Shay are the cover stars on the latest issue of Africa’s leading youth-focused magazine, Y! Africa. It is released to commemorate August 12 2014 – the International Day of the Youth.
Seyi Shay is one of Nigeria’s fastest rising singers who traced her journey from a group founded by Beyonce’s father to being spotted by Sound Sultan, groomed by Cecil Hammond, and finally setting out on her own in a male-dominated environment.
Khalfan, named the Africa Business Leader of the Year 2013 by the Corporate Council of Africa is chief executive officer of Puku LLC and innovator behind the Puku S8, inspired after Hurricane Sandy kept him hostage in New York City. He talks to Y! Africa about his invention, the inspiration and how he sees the future of business in his home country Tanzania and across Africa.
