Firm pledges to un­lock youths’ la­tent tal­ents

The Guardian (Nigeria) - - APPOINTMENTS - By Adaku Onyenucheya

THE Busi­ness Devel­op­ment Man­ager, Vskit, Jared Guo, has said his team would con­tinue to pro­vide Nige­ri­ans with plat­forms that would un­leash mil­lions of young tal­ents, and help them achieve their po­ten­tial and goals.

He stressed that vir­tu­ally all young peo­ple have tal­ents, which do not see the light of day be­cause there was no plat­form to show­case it, adding that with Vskit, Africa’s largest cre­ative short video com­mu­nity, Nige­ri­ans can show­case their tal­ents and get con­nected to the world.

Guo stated this dur­ing Viskit’s first tal­ent con­fer­ence for con­tent cre­ators held in La­gos, where over 100 youths from the Univer­sity of La­gos (UNILAG), La­gos State Univer­sity (LASU), and Yaba Col­lege of Tech­nol­ogy (YABATECH), were brought to­gether to net­work and de­velop their tal­ents. Ex­plain­ing the ben­e­fits of the plat­form, he said the mo­bile app, de­vel­oped by joint ven­ture of Trans­sion groups, par­ent com­pany of Tecno, Itel, and in­finix, al­lows any­one to cre­ate, share and watch awe­some short videos, and meet more in­ter­est­ing new friends around the world.

He noted that within the space of seven months launch in Nige­ria, there have been over five mil­lion young con­tent de­vel­op­ers and tal­ents de­vel­oped, and part of the over 320 mil­lion users in the African re­gion, which is its main fo­cus.
