From Our Sponsors: AfricanLoft
|(Listen to the judges on d voice player and read their comments here)|
I just wanna say a very BIG KUDOS to those who have made this possible. It's been mad fun throughout. I never knew we had such angelic voices in our midst. I hope something like this comes up again very soon.
The Blogville Idols competition has shown that Africans are indeed a very talented race. With determination, openness of mind and a very strong will, we can reach the top and beyond. AfricanLoft is very proud to be associated with this commendable initiative.
Please, note that the prizes we're giving is just a token of our support and an encouragement to the winner to embrace her potentials and seek higher grounds in her strides in life. We love you guys lots and wish all of you the very best!
AfricanLoft is a watering-hole for the indigenes, descendants and friends of Africa worldwide. It’s an interactive platform where we celebrate, flaunt, query, and discuss our “connectedness” to the motherland. It's the newest thing on online citizen media. You have to be a lofter to understand what i mean :)
AfricanLoft offers an eclectic array of contents that vary from essays on politics and business to poetry and music. This is a multi-author, multimedia site with full social networking features. Components:
The Discussion Lounge is where authors and contributors strut, and hawk their stuff in different lounges. Posted articles are comment enabled. Here, the concept of citizen media is strongly encouraged. Membership is by invitation. You may request to become an AfricanLoft official author by filling the contact form.
The Community is the social networking piece of AfricanLoft. Upload your media (audio, photo, video) or start a discussion in the forum or blog. Call it the African Facebook, and you won't be far from the truth. And if you feel empowered, you may even start a Group; AfricanLoft offers you that capability. It's usefulness lies in its diversification. You can also embed uploaded media, both audio and video in your blogs or websites by 'copy and paste' a simple script. It's that easy!
AfricanLoft TV: Yes, you can watch your favourite TV programs right on your PC, through online streaming. It covers Worldwide News (Reuters, AP, AFP, BBC, CBC, CNN, etc), Entertainment News, Sports News, etc. Constantly updated and breaking news are streamed right to your PC as they come.
ChatterBox is a page dedicated to the African and Afrophilic bloggers. It algorithmically groups blog and news feeds into clusters to provide a snapshot of the news-buzz both in the blogosphere and in the mainstream media. The plan is to do a 2-hourly updates…We ain’t there yet, but we will. For now, the site updates 3-4 times daily, I think.
Big ups to the following lofters: Tayo, Izzonline, Pheyi, Omodudu, Ugo Daniels, Kaydee, Babs, Pamelastitch, Adeola, Naruca Iancu, etc
Need help? Have questions? Want to write and contribute? Don’t like what you saw? Like what you saw? Want to become an African (yes, it’s possible!) Just Holla!
