If there is anything you could say with certainty about Leo Stan Ekeh, Chairman of Zinox Technologies Limited, it is the fact that he has his eyes fixed on the future.
Without a doubt, Ekeh, who is arguably Africaâ€™s biggest entrepreneur, comes across as a restless spirit. Indeed, if he were a writer or an artist, one would be right to say that his muse has never left him. But more important, he is in constant quest to rule the nationâ€™s e-commerce sector.
Interestingly, the billionaire businessman is bent on redefining and lifting the sector with his acquisition of Konga,Â one of the Nigeriaâ€™s biggest e-commerce giants, in line with his abiding desire to revolutionise the industry.
Spyglass gathered that since the news broke out last week, the story shook the industry to its very foundation as his influence has risen astronomically.
This may not be a surprise to those who have been following his story, especially when you consider that he pioneered e-commerce in Nigeria over 12 years ago with the launch of BuyRight Africa.com.Â Though the business which seemed ahead of its time, was stunted by the absence of e-payment infrastructure and debit card, his appetite for e-commerce has never waned.
