You really want to know what happened when a team from Facebook visited Konga on Tuesday January 28?
Well, a 12 member team led by Nichola Mendelsohn; Head of Facebook, Europe, Middle East and Africa, met and addressed the Konga leadership and Marketing team and highlighted how the store is Africa’s success story with a reputation that has gone beyond local shores, in less than 2 years of its existence.
Mendelsohn and the team wanted to know how Konga has been able to stamp its footprint in Nigeria in such a short time with plenty of positive feedback coming from users on Facebook. She also emphasized their admiration and satisfaction for the successful execution of Konga’s Black Friday/Cyber Friday-Fall Yakata and Konga’s Christmas Campaigns while expressing their desire to further strengthen Facebook’s relationship with the Konga brand.
Konga has over nearly 800, 000 Facebook fans liking its page. The country has over 12 million active people using Facebook, the team therefore sees an opportunity of using such mutual partnerships to gain more users on the continent in its race to have everyone online.
COO of Konga.com, Alex Kamara showed them around and thanked them for visiting and spoke about some of the initiatives that Konga has planned for its users in the coming year.
Konga was this weekend honored by the Creative Entrepreneurs of Nigeria for excellence at a Gala night attended by Nigeria’s Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister for Economy, Dr Okonjo Iweala and Dr Andrew Pocock, the British High Commissioner to Nigeria.
