Launching of the new edition of Digital Africa, an innovation competition to take up the challenge of digital transition in Africa

 

 

Deadline for startups to submit their projects on DigitalAfrica.AFD.fr is the 22nd of October
 

 

For the 40th birthday of Proparco, the subsidiary of the Agence Française de Développement (AFD, French Development Agency) (www.AFD.fr) focused on private sector, AFD, Bpifrance (www.Bpifrance.fr) and the La French Tech (www.LaFrenchTech.com) have launched on 19 September the second edition of Digital Africa, a startup competition and digital innovation to support sustainable development in Africa. The first edition of the Digital Africa challenge, launched in October 2016, received more than 500 applications and rewarded 10 start-ups which convinced the judging panel on the potential impact of their innovation. Building on this success, AFD, Bpifrance and La French Tech have decided to renew the experience with the objective of offering a long-term support to the emergence of mature and solid digital ecosystems, catalysers of new economic opportunities.

Digital technology, a great accelerator of Africa’s development 

Digital revolution is transforming the African continent. It’s an innovative catalyst that revolutionizes economies and societies. Ecology, energy, culture, education, artistic creation, governance, and media: digital technology has a transversal and multiplying impact in all those key sectors.

“Digital innovation is abundant in Africa. Africans are making a technological leap that accelerates the emergence of the continent. Through Digital Africa, AFD supports emblematic start-ups of the digital African ecosystems, and fulfils its mission of development in the service of education and innovation, in the digital age. Development is now moving in both directions, between the two shores of the Mediterranean” – Rémy Rioux, AFD Executive Director.

 

Nicolas Dufourcq, Bpifrance Executive Director claims “We are proud to participate in the Digital Africa challenge and to support 5 French start-ups in their development on the African continent which nowadays offers great opportunities. This challenge represents a straight continuation of our action for the internalization of enterprises and their cooperation with the African continent”.

 

Innovation in Africa is showing extraordinary development, ecosystems are being structured, and start-ups are spreading across the continent. By promoting the links between French and African entrepreneurs today, our ecosystems are building a common future. Digital Africa is for French Tech an additional step to bring this ambition with Africa”, David Monteau, La French Tech Director, Ministry of Economy and Finance.

 

A fully customized program 

All the startup winners of this second edition of the Digital Africa challenge will benefit from a high visibility and access an international network of partners, clients and investors. They will be part of a community that gathers the best talents of digital innovation in Africa and for Africa, in order to share experiences and good practices.

The 5 African winning startups will be accompanied by the AFD through an “acceleration pack”, a customizable, technical and financial support up to a 30.000 euros value.

The 5 French winning startups will be accompanied by Bpifrance up to a 10.000 euros value support pack to strengthen their expertise and develop new opportunities on the African continent: Bpifrance Université training, networking and discovery trip to Abidjan and Cape Town with the French entrepreneurs community in the French Tech Hubs.

“For a young startup, Digital Africa offers a great opportunity to gain a continental and international visibility.” – Dieu-Donné Okalas Ossami, E-Tumba, winning startup of the first edition of Digital Africa.

 

What are the selection criteria? 

For the second edition of Digital Africa, startups are invited to propose innovative projects linked to the following themes:

  • Territory (urban challenge, rural transformation, and Smart City etc.)
  • Citizenship (e-government, civic engagement, activism, and alternative media etc.)
  • Knowledge and creativity (education, formation, creative and cultural industries etc.)
  • Environment and climate (green tech, clean tech, sustainable transportations, blue economy, and renewable energies etc.)

The relevance of the solutions proposed, their feasibility, sustainability and potential impact will be key criteria in the selection process divided in several steps:

  • An extensive analysis of the projects, of their innovative nature and of their business model;
  • A review of the pre-selected projects by AFD and Bpifrance experts;
  • A final selection by a jury composed by experts of the technological and entrepreneurial ecosystem in Africa.

Heralding the new event, African gaming expert, Roy Bannister, said: “I anticipate a lot of interest from international visitors looking to get in on the action in a jurisdiction that is pretty hot at the moment. One only needs to look at the trade press to see announcements of deals being done in Africa, new developments and advances in sports betting, payment technologies and mobile growth that is fuelling a lot of excitement about the continent. There is also interest from numerous African regulators wanting to understand how to more effectively regulate their industries, as well as manufacturers looking to place the latest gaming technology on the continent and enable operators to run profitable gaming ventures. Clarion will bring a professionally run gaming event to the African continent, that will draw upon its international expertise and networking capabilities and allow a market crying out for a world class gathering to finally be able to convene on the African continent and, in the process, take the gaming industry to greater heights.”

 

 

Curtis Roach, Content Lead for Gaming Africa said: “It’s fantastic to be working on Gaming Africa as it brings a long-overdue event to arguably the most important and exciting region in the world for the future of gaming. My remit is to produce a forum that inspires, generates active discussion and provides invaluable ideas for delegates to take back to their organisations. Training plays a vital role in raising standards and creating a professional and sustainable industry. To satisfy this, we will be bringing the highly acclaimed ‘Totally Gaming Academy’ master classes to Gaming Africa. Globally recognised experts Arjan Korstjens and Lee Richardson will be flying in to guide delegates through their specialist courses: Casino Marketing Academy, and Sportsbook Management Academy. These are being provided by Clarion Gaming on an entirely complimentary basis – a saving of R15,000.”

TKZEE , Bongo Muffin reunite for Delicious Fest

Posted by radio On September - 12 - 2017 ADD COMMENTS

It’s going to be fire on the DStv Delicious Festival stage as two of SA’s most loved bands Bongo Muffin and TKZee reunite for exclusive performances at the 2017 DStv Delicious International Food & Music Festival, brought to you by Liberty at Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit in Midrand.

TKZee will perform on Saturday 7 October and Bongo Maffin on Sunday 8 October.

 

The two groups will join an already impressive line-up of artists at the festival such as international heavyweights Common, Imagination featuring Leee John, Alexander O’Neal, Omar and Femi Kuti as well as local talent Hugh Masekela, Thandiswa Mazwai and Black Coffee.

 

In addition to Bongo Maffin and TKZee selecting their own material to perform, audiences will be invited to choose four songs to be performed by each band at the festival. You can also expect a live band for the TKZee performance:

 

TKZee

Who doesn’t remember the endless hits brought to us by this group made up of three school friends, Tokollo Tshabalala, Kabelo Mabalane and Zwai Bala. TKZee ignited the South African music scene in 1996, fast becoming the top-selling kwaito group in the country. Their first breakthrough hit, Palafala, sampled Joni Mitchell’s 1970 hit, Big Yellow Taxi, and sold more than 100,000 copies.

 

The three musicians didn’t shoot to fame by chance.  Classically trained Zwai was the first black member of the Drakensburg Boys Choir as well as the first black member of the Royal Music Academy in Edinburgh, Scotland. Tokollo started off his career in 1995, recording with kwaito artist, Mdu, while Kabelo was part of a music exchange programme in the United States.

 

Today, their sound is so much more than kwaito and incorporates hip-hop, classical, house and gospel beats that fuse into what is now known as “Guz” music.

 

Bongo Maffin

Bongo Maffin is known for its heady mix of kwaito, house, techno, rap, hip-hop, and reggae sounds – a highly successful blend that saw them win a South African Music Award for Best Kwaito Band in 1999 and “Best African Group” at the KORA All-African Award ceremonies in 2001.

 

Made up of Jah Seed, Thandiswa Mazwai, Stoan Seate and Speedy, the bank was formed by Zimbabwe-born musician and DJ, Appleseed (born Oscar Appleseed), in 1996. The band built up a solid fan base in South Africa before exploring the international music arena and gaining appreciation in France, England and Denmark.

The Los Angeles based DISCOP organisation is excited to announce a new programme, dubbed DISCORE, that will bring the world of music production closer to the African editions of the DISCOP Film, Television, Digital Content Markets.

 

With the inaugural event to kick off at Côte d’Ivoire during the next Abidjan edition of DISCOP (29|31 May 2018), DISCORE will be co-organised with Nairobi-based PHAT! Music & Entertainment – a celebrated authority on African music since 1999, under its social enterprise arm, ONGEA! Africa.

 

DISCORE will be launched at DISCOP Johannesburg, taking place from 25th – 27th October 2017, at the Sandton Convention Centre.

 

Designed as a knowledge-transfer and matchmaking programme, DISCORE will specifically target African-based creative, production, and technical experts from within the expanding Pan-African music industry.

 

These African music producers and experts will be offered the unique opportunity to learn from the pros, as well as to build relationships with international music supervisors and film, television & digital content producers seeking original songs and scores that can accompany entertainment content destined for global audiences.

 

Given the ever-increasing range and diversity of audiences, the selection of music for content is playing an increasingly decisive and important role in establishing atmosphere, tone, and even the appeal of original content.

 

“The conflation of the music, film, television & digital content industries continues at a rapid pace as storytelling recipes change to adapt to the commercial imperatives of an increasing global market for diversified content”, explains Patrick Zuchowicki, General Manager of DISCOP.

 

Founding Director of ONGEA! Africa – Mike Strano, concurs: “It is clear that within this global context, the time is right for African music creators and producers to stake their claim, as the demand for more original scores, and particularly for African sounds, is rising fast.”

 

This increased appetite for African sounds is demonstrated by the growing number of collaborations with African artists hitting the global airwaves.  From the likes of Britain’s Ed Sheeran collaborating with Ghanaians Fuse ODG and KillBeatz on “Bibia Be Ye Ye” that has over 37 million views on YouTube, the 2016 Collaboration between the highly acclaimed Canadian Hip-Hop sensation Drake and Nigeria’s Wizkid on “One Dance” that became one of the top selling songs globally to the 2017 hit from Tanzanian artist Diamond Platnumz and American RnB Superstar Ne-Yo, “Marry You,” African artists and sounds are reaching new heights.

 

Other developments such as content streaming are also adding to this demand, according to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) 2017 report, the global music market grew by 5.9% in 2016, with streaming as the clear driver of this growth due to a 60% increase in revenue. Interestingly, there was a 334% growth of streaming in Africa, driven by increased smartphone penetration on the continent and forward-thinking partnerships between tech companies and music corporates.

 

The IFPI further reported that the global music synchronisation market grew by 7% in 2015, and by another 2.8% in 2016. Midem 2016 even featured a panel exclusively dedicated to African music, entitled: Tapping into Africa – an Emerging Music Sector, that echoed the sentiment that there is a growing global demand for African music and its licensing.

 

The time, therefore, is now for DISCORE – a unique platform that will bring together all relevant players in the industry for a focused B2B meeting and business environment.

 

DISCORE will be an interactive experience, bridging the worlds of music and filmed content, to:

  • Give creative, production and technical experts in Africa’s music industry a unique chance to break into the global content production market, while learning from the world’s most visionary entrepreneurs.
  • Provide key music supervisors, from the global film, television, digital content and advertising industries, unparalleled access to creative and production talent in Africa, with a proven aptitude to captivate the ears of multi-cultural audiences.

 

From 2018, all DISCOP African markets will include a full-day DISCORE programme,that will provide participants with valuable, actionable information and tools, along with unparalleled access to networking and meetings.

 

The proposed programme will include:

  1. Knowledge-transfer:Designed expressly for composers, music publishers, independent producers, agents and lawyers, as well as for recording, sound-mixing and post-production studios aspiring to play a role in the fast-evolving, cross-border film, television, digital content and advertising global ecosystem.
  2. Sync Connect: Enabling leading composers and publishers from Africa to pitch their works to established international music supervisors working on the production of film, television, digital content and advertising.
  3. Matchmaking:Providing qualified creative, production and technical talent access to key music supervisors, through scheduled meetings.

 

In order to ensure a continued momentum, and to bridge strategic Regions of Africa, DISCORE will take place three times in 2018 and four times a year at the four African DISCOP markets from 2019: Nigeria (March), Abidjan (May), Zanzibar (July), and South Africa (October).

Some of Cartoon Network’s favourite characters will keep them occupied in a flurry of activities. A Ben 10 augmented reality (AR) experience will enable kids to transform into their favourite Ben 10 alien: Heatblast, who throws fireballs; Diamondhead, who throws crystal shards; Four Arms, who creates shock waves; or Overflow, who shoots water.

There is also the Ben 10 race, a designated area for kids to frolic about on balancing beams, monkey bars and ball pits. There will also be sack races so the kids can battle against each other and put their Ben 10 alien skills to the test.

 

‘PPG Yourself’ stations will keep the little ones amused for ages as they have the chance to turn themselves into their very own Powerpuff Girl. It will allow them to customise their look and style to create a Powerpuff Girl ‘mini-me’. What’s more is that you can get your image printed on-site to take home.

 

A screening area will play movies and your favourite Cartoon Network shows throughout the day. They will even get the chance to be one of the first to see the premiere of new ‘special’ episodes of the Powerpuff Girls which introduces the newest Powerpuff Girl voiced by Toya de Lazy.

 

Imagination Studio’s will have the kids busy for hours, exploring their artistic talents by drawing, colouring and creating their very own animated characters.

 

Then there is Boomerang’s Mini-Zoo, with an animal themed “what’s in the box”. An interactive experience that allows children to engage with Boomerang and learn all about animals through tactile, sight and sound experiences.

 

Bounce KinderGym is a gymnastics programme supervised by trained Bounce KinderGym coaches and will be available for 3 to 5-year olds, strictly. The specifically designed programme harnesses the unique fun and health benefits of trampolining and is proven to help children build self-expression and confidence.

 

In yet more fun, children will be able to enjoy the Strider Adventure Zone or bike obstacle track. Strider Adventure Zones are safe and friendly environments that encourage kids up to 5 years old to test ride a Strider and play with other kids, while improving and developing fundamental bike handling skills.

 

The entertainment doesn’t end there. Two PlayStation trailers, giant inflatables, a fun food bar for hungry adventurers, a 12-metre climbing wall and a Baby and Toddler Zone.
