See The Founders Of Konga And Jumia With Founding Dates

If you shop online in Nigeria, then there is the highest tendency that you do shop from Konga or Jumia platform.

Konga and Jumia are undoubtedly the biggest online shopping store in Nigeria for large varieties of products, ranging in categories of electronics, fashions, cosmetics, home appliances, toys, books etc.

In Africa as a whole, they are still amongst the leading e-stores as they also operate in some Africa countries.

It is true that many of you shop on those two platforms and it is also true that many that shop on them know little or nothing about the brains (founders) behind those platforms.

Now I want you to see it like attending a secondary school without knowing even the name of the principal or going through university education without knowing the vice-chancellor.
