The giant strides of Ndhlovu Ziggy Xolane continue unbroken as his DafriGroup is set to launch AfriGo Mall, a new subsidiary that will match the likes of Amazon.
The new subsidiary which is an e-commerce company will focus on online retailing across Africa, the Billionaire entrepreneur hinted recently.
Ndhlovu, better known by his online [email protected], offered an insight into his latest entrepreneurial effort, saying: “AfriGo Mall is a marketplace where you buy and sell just about anything. It will be Amazon of Africa and is owned by DafriGroup.”
This is coming a few months after the DafriBank Digital went live and accounts holders of the first digital-only bank on the continent are transacting seamlessly across Africa.
Explaining further, xolanendhlovu, the digital entrepreneur and philanthropy extraordinaire, said: “DafriBank will be the principal payment partner, meaning, money in DafriBank account can be used to shop on AfriGo Mall; subscribers on the platforms can also advertise and sell anything from anywhere in Africa.”
Asked when the new e-commerce business will become active, Xolane Ndhlovu said: “Expect it anytime soon.”
In the meantime, the DafriGroup chairman continues his Sunday reward for his social media followers who are required to drop their DafriBank account numbers on his Instagram page where 20 lucky winners are randomly selected for their monetary reward.
