About Techloy post image

Our History

The idea behind Techloy (formerly – now defunct) was born in 2008 from Loy Okezie's Parisien shared apartment, while studying for his post-graduate programme in France. The blog was his way of keeping up with and chronicling the nascent technology developments out of Africa and the rest of the world.

From its early beginnings as a blog, Techloy obsessively profiled startups, broke the biggest news, reported exclusive stories, produced stellar reviews, crafted incisive opinions, and produced a thought-provoking analysis of the nascent technology startup ecosystem in Africa.

"Techloy is Africa’s most authoritative technology blog." – Forbes, 2012

Our Mission

Since its launch in 2010, Techloy has continued to build on its reputation as one of the most authoritative news publications covering the technology space.

Over the years, Techloy’s forward-thinking approach as a digital publication has seen it evolve from a blog to a full-fledged technology media company providing deeper insights into news stories that matter around the economy, technology, mobile, business, and finance.

Today, publishes information about companies, products, careers, and funding in the technology industry across emerging markets globally – so if you want to keep up with what's happening in tech, subscribe to


Our Vision

Techloy's goal is to become a leading technology company providing business, career, and financial information for the technology industry in emerging markets globally.

To date, Techloy remains independent, bootstrapped, and privately held, which differentiates us in the increasingly complicated tech media landscape – and as such, we are free from the influence of any government, corporate, or individual interests.
