Ikenna Azuike is an ex City lawyer turned internet personality and entrepreneur. After turning his back on a successful career as a lawyer in London, New York and Singapore, Ikenna took the surprising step of becoming a youtube video blogger focussed on Africa and an internet entrepreneur with a niche in sustainability. Four years on, Ikenna’s youtube show What’s Up Africa has a following of thousands. His foundation and company Strawberry Earth has also become a well established name in the sustainability field in the Netherlands.
His digital life is devoted to finding the latest creative and innovative trends being embraced by young Africans as well as by young people interested in living more sustainable lifestyles. He shares the results of his search through What’s Up Africa and Strawberry Earth.
He is regularly invited to host Africa and sustainability related events where the emphasis is on creative branding, internet trends, new media journalism and digital life in general, and he does so with enthusiasm and lots of energy.
“Ikenna did a great job as the moderator for our FWF Annual Conference. He managed to stay true to his fun tone of voice without disregarding the serious topics that outlined the day. This came across with audience: many people shared their enthusiasm about Ikenna and wanted to know where to book him. And very important is that not only his performance is good, he’s also a nice person to work with!”– Lisa Hardon, Fair Wear FoundationRead more Read less
