#YTech100 2016 Award To CFA

CFA Recognised for His Outstanding Contribution to Tech Development

A journey of a thousand miles starts with one single step and that step for CFA was taken on the July 9, 2009, when he decided, against all odds, to start a blog after losing all he had in a couple of failed business ideas, chief of which was an oil and gas startup.

With no money in his pocket or bank account, CFA decided to launch a blog. In fact the blog would have been launched much earlier that year, but the developer whom he paid N10,000 (borrowed from his family members), eloped to London with the money. To cut the long story short, CFA had to learn to use wordpress to build websites, which enabled him to develop his first blog by himself!

Over 6 years down the line, the number of awards he has received in the tech field has been unbelievable for something that started as an hubby. Just last Thursday, February 25, 2016, I represented CFA at the #YTech100 Social Media Week 2016 because he was in the United States, attending the IBM Interconnect 2016. I am glad to inform you that, once again, CFA was recognized at the event as one of the top 100 influences in the Nigerian technology space. I received the award on his behalf.
