African Blogger Awards 2014

The winners of the first annual African Blogger Awards – that saw over 520 entries from 27 African countries – have been announced. The competition received entries from all corners of the continent including Nigeria, Kenya, Benin, Mali, Morocco, Togo, Cameroon, Malawi and Eritrea, to name a few, with the diversity of nationalities being a clear indication that social media influencers across Africa have welcomed the opportunity to be measured quantitatively against their peers.

The 2014 African Blogger Awards are the first true, impartial measure of the reach, resonance and relevance of an influencer channel. The awards also mark the first time that winners have been announced based on scientific metrics, rather than through peer nominations.
