A New Social Media site called Koolooma.Com was launched in South Africa, with aim of connecting the Afri-centric reality to the global narrative," he says.
Koolooma.com is the brainchild of author and motivational speaker Kenni Gambo, who penned the inspirational books How to Achieve Your Dreams and Conquering the Odds.
“The Idea behind Koolooma.com is to connect the Afro-centric view to the global narrative instead of seeing it sidelined and censored in many cases. Africa is part of the human family and it’s views, history and achievements should also be part of the human story,” he says.
With sites like Facebook now sharing users communication with spy agencies like the FBI etc, many people have been put off social media. Koolooma aims to bring them back online, with the assurance that no users information will be shared with any 3rd party.
“Koolooma must be that fresh breeze that connects people globally without causing them concern regarding the use of their information.”
