ChekAfrica is Africa’s progressive media platform with a unique editorial focus on championing the Untold Stories of African Entrepreneurs and Academics.

Written by and about African thought leaders, ChekAfrica and ChekAfrica.com motivate users and readers to push the envelope, think beyond traditional boundaries and change the face of Africa for the better.

Launched in May 2016 by Bandela B. Mgoqi, a serial internet entrepreneur based in South Africa, ChekAfrica platform was founded on a single premise: To Tell The Untold African Stories. 

The face of Africa is changing. It has come a long way since it was reffered to as “The Hopeless Continent” by the Economist. This is due to irreverent and self-less African entrepreneurs and academics who blaze the trail against all odds.”
