There is always something to expect when you listen to #CitiTrends and this week packs its own surprises.
We start with a conversation about the opportunities that Nokia missed when it was flying high about a decade ago and how it has allowed itself to be overtake by Apple and Samsung. A former associate of Nokia and currently the Associate Director at TNS in Ghana, Nicola March joins me to share some thoughts.
Today, people are using computers to sometimes create things that are simply unbelievable. Technology is disrupting everything including the fine arts industry. But, how bad is it in Ghana? I caught up with a Ghanaian painter who uses charcoal for his work. His name is Kendall Nkrumah.
Apiorkor Seyram Ashong joins the show with the weekly dose of productivity apps including ID, Cortana and Everalbum. Mawuli Tsikata is also on hand to bring you up to date with the latest news from eh world of technology over the last week.
But if you do not believe me, press play and check it out yourself.
As the year draws to a close, we save the best conversations for last.
On the show tonight, we speak to a group called TNS who through their research called Connected Life – a global study of the digital attitudes and behaviours of 60,500 internet users across 50 countries, exploring how technology is transforming the lives of consumers across the world. Adewale Obaseki is the Managing Director of TNS Ghana and he shares some insight.
Our second conversation is about mobile money and following the emergence of Mpesa in Kenya, the mobile money gospel has spread far and wide. However, how big is it in Ghana? I have a conversation with the co-founder of Zeepay, one of the Ghana and Africa’s emerging voices and platforms for mobile money transactions, about the industry. His name is Andrew Takyi-Appiah.
Nana Boakye-Yiadom shares some of the latest trending technology related stories on the Trending segment of the show.
