CcHUB Celebrates African Tech Pioneers with Futuristic Art Exhibition


With the acquisition of Kenya’s iHUB, you would think that CcHUB would become the hub and totem bearer of tech in Africa. Well, you won’t be wrong if you thought so. On Thursday, CcHUB honored 24 of the continent’s top tech pioneers with ‘Nyota’, a unique African augmented reality art experience.

CcHUB CEO, Bosun Tijani explains that the art pieces curated by CcHUB and designed by Mayowa Alabi were created using digital illustration, which comes to life when viewed through an augmented reality app called ‘Artivive’, and placed over the piece in order to enhance it and create new dimensions of the art as viewers will also download information about the subject’s journey in the tech world.

“Technology is Africa’s fourth industrial revolution, as it powers and impacts lives of millions. There are a number of personalities from across the continent, who have been integral to promoting the technology-at-scale agenda in Africa.”  

“Nyota is a recognition of these tech leaders, and we are thrilled to be celebrating their work through this incredible augmented reality exhibition. Those included have come up from the trenches; they have paved the way for others in a sector still in its relative infancy, albeit one that is making a massive impact on how Africa operates.” – Bosun Tijani.

The tech leaders include: Erik Hersman (BRCK), Rebecca Wanjiku (Fireside Communications), Ory Okolloh (Omidyar Networks), Juliana Rotich, Bitange Ndemo (UoN), Dorcas Muthoni  (Openworld Ltd.), Gustav Praekelt (Praekelt Group), Strive Masiyiwa (Econet Wireless), Rebecca Enonchong (AppsTech), Nadu Denloye (Telnet Nigeria Ltd.) and Tomi Davies (TVCLabs).
