We broke the news of African Internet Holdings entry into Yaba neighbourhood earlier this year. The building, which is an extension of the E-Centre, houses Kaymu, Jovago, Lamudi, Carmudi, Easy Taxi and Hello Food. The office has been officially opened and press were invited to have the first look and here are some pictures of the build.
Kaymu has the lion’s share of the office. A larger percentage of their staff are customer care unit guys and ladies, who appear to be always wired and talking to clients. That really reminds me of my experience with Kaymu, when I bought a shirt from one of their merchants. Their customer care officer kept calling me from the moment I clicked to order to the moment the good was delivered to me. They still called later to ask for my review of the merchant, and their CEO rightly said during the interview; Customer care is their strength.
Another beautiful thing Kaymu did is to inscribe their staff names on the wall of the office which I think will be a motivation for anyone working under that roof.
Jovago took me by surprise I didn’t know they are this big. Marek Zmyslowski gave a sneak peek of the staffs group picture on Facebook recently.
