Thanks to our avid reader Kelvin from I made this update – I am sorry for not including a Nigerian Tech guru (Even though this list is for the Tech Giants in the World). Nevertheless, Since I am a firm supporter of anything Nigerian, I made this addition because Jason Njoku is someone I respect a lot and I am a firm believer that in the next coming years, IrokoTV would be greater than Netflix – In case you don’t know,  Jason Njoku is the Founder of iROKO and arguably one of the most awesome internet companies in Africa.
