African stock images: Android app development, social media and mobile phone usage in Africa

When I took this stock image set I had come to the realization that some of the African app developers I know had been struggling to find authentically African stock images of people using phones. My one friend wanted to use such images to promote his app here in Africa and many others had the same challenge. Where could they get African stock images of African hands using or holding a smart phone. I cases like these its not uncommon to find competing brands that use the same stock model or stock photograph to market their competing products.

I decided to add this image set to give everyone more choices. More models holding different phones will be coming in the future.

Here is a link to the image pack:

Satire vs Protest (POVO magazine commentary)

For those of you that love African arts but didn't manage to get your hands on POVO magazine I'm going to be commenting on the articles and stuff.

I really enjoyed Rumbidzai Dube's (@dubbydacious) article inonzi "Is Satire the New Protest?" mainly because I love protest music (I have every major Bob Dylan track) and I'm abscessed with satire comedy shows (like Arrested Development - "It's a satire - Marc Cherry"). Anywhere back to Povo magazine..

Rumbie's article is ridiculously hilarious. She anatomical dissected the "Zviri kumbofamba sei" (Best translated as - What [censored] is going on in our Zimbabwean society). Dubbydacious is a lawyer/ blogger** by profession, so you can expect nothing less than brilliance in her article. She even expresses her bafflement with Alick Macheso' unorthodox "nhova" medicine he allegedly tried to use to cure his daughter.

If it wasn't for this attile I wouldn't have connected the dots of similarity between my two favourite forms of expression; satire & protest. If you failed to get a copy, read the entire magazine online:

**Lawyer/Blogger reminds me of Arrested Development's Wayne Jarvis and his tongue-twistingly titled law blog.

Whatsapp has a new Anti-hero called the Bluetick.

It's been a while since I updated my blog. Today is Sat 8/Nov/2014 and yesterday my Whatsapp started showing 2 blue ticks whenever someone reads your messages. This has, as you can imagine caused mayhem. A few people in my social media circles started complaining that they can now be exposed when they ignore/ refuse to reply someone's message. The blue ticks are being painted as somekind of mega villains. I thought it would be nice to play around with that idea..
