Meet the winners

About two days ago, the 20 winners shortlisted to 7 winners, and eventually, one “Big Winner” eventually emerged, which is Chidi Nwaogu, for his contributions to the growth of Publiseer, a digital platform that helps independent and underserved African writers, musicians, filmmakers, and video-game developers, typically those from low-income and disadvantaged communities to earn above the minimum wage and live above the poverty line from the sales of their creative works.

In a tweet from Chidi Nwaogu, he said, “It was indeed a humbling experience for me because every one of the 20 winners is doing an amazing thing for their ecosystem!” The serial tech entrepreneur and software developer earlier this year, emerged a winner of the Migration Entrepreneurship Prize by the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) Human Security Division (HSD), for his same contribution to the growth of Publiseer.

The digital media company, Publiseer, was also in the news, sometime mid-year, for emerging the Digital Media Publisher of the Year 2020 at the African Excellence Awards hosted by MEA Markets.

The digital media company emerged in the West African region category, having distinguished itself among other nominees. According to the awarding organization, Publiseer “has demonstrated excellence, commitment, and dedication.”

Publiseer helps independent and underserved African creatives, to distribute, protect, promote, and monetize their creative works across over 400 well-established partner stores worldwide, at no charge, with just a single click.
