Bounce News App has been declared the winner of the 2017 AppsAfrica Best News and Entertainment the App Award.
The AppsAfrica awards ceremony, which was held in Cape Town, South Africa on November 6th, 2017, recognizes innovation in the tech ecosystem across Africa, and is supported by Mobile Monday South Africa and Mobile Ecosystem Forum (MEF).
The award adds to the growing collection of Bounce News’ laurels and also underlines the fast rising profile of the news app as Nigeria’s leading online news destination.
Bounce News Nigeria’s Head of Marketing, Modupe Ogunyemi thanked the organizers for recognizing Bounce News Apps’ excellence in delivering personalized news to its users within Nigeria and across the world.
She also pledged that the platform will maintain the higher standards set in producing original news content while tailoring the App’s content to suit individual user preferences.
It is fitting to note that the News App is in line for another major international award, as it has been nominated for the World Architectural News Award. The WAN award to be held in Berlin, Germany is the largest international architecture award programme.
These outpouring of accolades for Bounce is coming less than eight months after it was established. And its growth has been attributed to its digital innovation and news gathering technique, which leverages artificial intelligence to provide Nigerians with personalised content.
Other nominees for the Best News and entertainment award are: Jokko Text (Senegal), Vodacom Music (South Africa), Vodacom Games (South Africa) and Sportsie (Nigeria).
