About the Shout-Africa.com
Shout-Africa is an African news hub featuring latest news on the continent, her people, the diaspora, the arts and culture, sports, business, religion and more. The news hub carries relevant pan-African news published in African countries and abroad, and seeks to provide avenues for cooperation and to optimize coverage of major news events in the continent.
The news hub was first discussed informally by the Africans in the diaspora and those in the diaspora. Encouraged by the warm fellowship among them and the success of several other such news platforms, they decided to pursue not only the news on africa but the celebration of the entire continent with the goal of improving the coverage of African affairs by African media. In June 2010, during the FIFA WorldCup championship hosted for the first time in Africa, Shout-Africa is launched.
