Interview with Nmachi Jidenma, Chief Evangelist, CP-Africa

By Gbenga Awomodu

Nmachi Jidenma

With the plethora of negative news content about Africa today, it is most likely you get bored and appalled by the unending posts on the things that are wrong about Africa – poverty, disease, hunger, war and strife. But there are extremely inspiring and beautiful stories coming out of the continent. Now, there’s a promising cure for your headache! CP-Africa was founded in April 2009 by Nmachi Jidenma, a 22 year old Applied Economics & Management graduate student at Cornell University, New York. This new online crusade to reshape the Africa conversation began when Nmachi started blogging about progressive things happening in Nigeria on her Facebook page. She later added topics from other African countries and eventually moved the content to a Blogger account. The CP-Africa website is unique in its strict adherence to publishing positive and progressive content from and about the black continent. It collaborates with other organisations and websites concerned with relevant issues in Africa to deliver up-to-date information about Africans in Diaspora who are doing great. It also employs links to social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter to reach out to the increasing global network of internet users.
