After the March announcement of its bold new direction, covering West, East, Southern & Central Africa, the magazine Y! Africa has announced its latest issue, covered by Ashish J. Thakkar, who has been called Africaâs youngest billionaire, and who is founder of Mara Group and theÂ Mara Foundation.
From escaping genocide and Hotel Rwanda, to conducting transatlantic business at the ripe old age of 15, Ashish J. Thakkar is a poster boy for the evolving possibilities of the continent, the editors say.
âAfrica is a beautiful picture in contrasts,â said Chude Jideonwo, who is editor-in-chief. âOn the one handâ¦ much more than half of the employable young population is out of job and there are many caught in wars and rumors of ears, from Sudanâs two sides to the Central African Republic. But on the otherâ¦ thereâs growth and palpable excitement as the continent to watch; investment pouring in for technology and a whole range of businesses new and traditional, impressive GDPs acrossÂ countries; democracy solidifying and with it free speech, citizen engagement, the flourishing enterprise and a groundswell of creativity.
This edition presents that sense of newness â and hope.â
