Africa’s first video web based magazine might just come from Botswana. Diantsha Botswana, a business directory and entertainment portal will go live next month.
According to Diantsha Digital Films Marketing Manager, Frazmena Siniwa-Basiyawo, the magazine will offer a gateway for Botswana and the world to experience life “in the now”. “We are young people moving with the times and embracing technology. People can log in using their smart phones, the website is very easy to navigate, it has 8 sections; it is user friendly and even a first time user will not have trouble finding their way around the site,” Siniwa-Basiyawo said.
The eight sections include Sports, TV shows, Travel and Tourism and other sections for businesses to advertise their products and services. The two TV shows, Young Parenting Botswana and New Business World have already attracted a following through Facebook pages. Young Parenting is a show meant to offer advice for young parents. The website will also feature local music videos. New Business World provides mentorship, guidance, inspiration as well as motivation to young entrepreneurs in Botswana
“The site is ready for launching and currently only companies willing to have their videos uploaded on the magazine can view it before we launch it next month,” Siniwa-Basiwayo told WeekendLife. The site, she said will have a shelf life of 2 months, where content, except sports and TV shows, will be updated bimonthly. The TV shows and sports section will be updated weekly or as and when they come. All content that goes on online, according to her will later be put on to DVD and distributed across Botswana.
According to her, about 14 youthful videographers, graphic designers, scriptwriters and TV ambassadors are all involved in making the web based digital magazine a reality. Diantsha Botswana hopes to raise the bar for superior video content on the Web locally.
Recently, online magazine publishers have ploughed money into video, precisely because of the need for consumers to view content on the move and not have to read through everything.
In May 2014, controversial pint sized musician, Odirile Sento married his longtime girlfriend, Kagiso Sento in a glamorous wedding, not knowing that eight years later, the two will be fighting until the very end of their holy union.
Mental health is one critical element in someone’s life but gloomily, it is often overlooked. Topics centered on mental health and depression dominate the public discourse. The national conversation surrounding mental wellness, both online and offline has aided in the stigma of suffering from depression being removed, slowly but surely.
