The African Continent has a combined population of 1.2 Billion people and with it, a fast-growing Middle Class consisting of 300 Million is making an impression on the Global Economy, turning it into a creative hotspot for artists and a growing market for Books and Media. Somto Ajuluchukwu, founder and CEO of Vortex247 spoke to Publisher’s Weekly about his new Company and the objective of the platform:

“We believe African comics and fiction stands as the future of global storytelling in mainstream media, We hope to be a propelling force and platform for this new age of entertainment content and create not just opportunity for individual creators with exceptional comics but a market place which would build an industry for young creators to monetize their stories and grow a fan base using our comics as a tool to export African culture and globalize our Afro lifestyle.”
