The launch of Wiki Mzansi is setting the tone for the need for Africans to take charge of how their life stories are coined and narrated. Whilst getting biographies on some African personalities has been harder over the years, the launch of Wiki Mzansi by Nine80 Digital seeks to address these challenges around stringent wikipedia entries and limited online resources on African personalities.
Below are 5 Reasons Why Wiki Mzansi Is A Game Changer For African Profiles
1. Unlike other profile platforms Wiki Mzansi will cover personalities in sectors such as business, government, politics, sports, entertainment etc
2. Wiki Mzansi is a continental project which will cover individuals across the continent and not only be limited to the Southern African or Eastern Africa which had previously been the case.
3. Based in South Africa, Wiki Mzansi is an African resource that is pan African in it’s nature and for Africa by an African.
4. Individual can post and publish their bios for free on the digital platform by simply visiting wikimansi.co.za
5. All published bios will be moderated and evaluated before publishing to ensure quality and authentic biographies.
