Diane Audrey Ngako is the former Le Monde social media editor, who left journalism for an exciting start-up she created called Visiter L’Afrique (Visit Africa) and a content agency Omenkart in 2014. She is now based in her native Cameroon and has managed to build a community of ambassadors from various African countries, who contribute to Visiter L'Afrique, with information about what to see, do and eat while travelling. The digital platform also works with contributors to show the continent at its best, and includes an Instagram round-up of the top images from #Visiterlafrique.




The Forbes 30 under 30 honoree nurtured an online community of storytellers and travellers who share interesting images, videos and tips to get the most out of life in various regions on the continent.



The bilingual entrepreneur is inspiring Africans to look at their respective countries with a new lens, and also encouraging visitors to enjoy the continent in an authentic way by using the website and its social media channel as a resource.

Rema Welcomes 2021 With New Single 'Bounce'

The Don Jazzy produced track reminds us of why the Nigerian singer-songwriter is topping charts.

Nigerian golden boy Rema took his time on deciding how to start of 2021—and we're glad he did.

The afropop hitmaker is out with his first project of the year, "Bounce", after stunning fans with word of an upcoming album, and the cooks in this kitchen have not disappointed.

Keeping it in the Mavin Records family, legendary producer Don Jazzy sprinkles his magic on the track, while undoubtedly motivating the young singer-songwriter to be his best self. And with this track being like nothing we've heard from Rema before, one could say Jazzy succeeded. "Bounce", fast-paced and fierce, is a love song dedicated to bewitchingly beautiful and blessed bottoms. The candid declaration and hip shaking beat are a force duo and we can't help but love it.

Of the single and collaboration with head honcho Don Jazzy, Rema says, "This record was inspired by the luscious and magnificent body of the African woman. Furthermore, I'm really excited about this tune because it's my first single with the legendary Don Jazzy."

Honestly, when you start the year off with a banger, you get to make songs about butts.
