Skynation Receives African Entertainment Awards Project

September 10th, 2013

Skynation is proud to be one of the contributing entities collectively part of the development of the African Entertainment Awards. While this awards show is quite arguably one of the largest events of its kind, its goal of uniting and engaging all Africans and the world through the use of social media and other technological methods gave Skynation a very wonderful challenge. The technological redevelopment of the company’s online platform commenced with the development of a voting panel, which would soon turn into something bigger. This meant not only allowing the awards show to reach an external population outside of the realm of the Toronto population who will be able to make decisions on what was happening during the show, it also meant that the awards show would be based on engaging a potential audience only existent online. While the 2013 event was a great success, with more funding, Sky Nation has begun work towards unveiling next year’s event as well as establishing the awards show as a dominant image with an influential presence online.

Lucky Lady IV Special Yacht Event

June 5th, 2013

Sknation decided to develop and brand the first urban Yacht event for the city of Vancouver. This would allow the company to create branding awareness within the demography they intend to design for and bring together Vancouver’s business network within a creative networking platform. The event would not only showcase the company’s capabilities with regards to software design and development as a tech company, it would also allow them the ability to create a truly social brand as a “nation”.

Lucky Lady IV not only went successfully with a turnout of over 500 individuals, according to the company’s President and Chief Operating Officer, Jerry Agudogo, “being able to create a marketing partnership with industrial giants such as Vancity Buzz, DIPT and Forty-Fourth Records only made this special event more magnificent”. The company stated that the goal of this event is to create a commercialised urban event where companies are able to showcase their capabilities and bring their brands out to notable Vancouver businesses. “The creativity put into this event by the marketing team allowed the success of the first event to create such a buzz within the community we’re in as well as those we hope to work with, that it was named Vancouver’s most anticipated urban yacht event”. According to Chris Elawa, Sky Nation’s Lead Designer, the branding of this event, as well as pre-and-post videography was something the design team had to have nailed down. The image of the company as well as what elements of our core values were to be projected through this event, needed to be apparent to the individuals checking out the website of the event, or looking at the posters or promotional material used.” According to Chris Elawa, Sky Nation’s Lead Designer, the branding of this event, as well as pre-and-post videography was something the design team had to have nailed down. “The image of the company as well as what elements of our core values were to be projected through this event needed to be apparent to the individuals checking out the website of the event, or looking at the posters or promotional material used”.


The company believes that software and design are becoming so intertwined, that the quality of any product should be judged by the cover of its application. We as a company do not intend on creating African products that are sub-par to any of our competitors since we hope to create products at world class standards. In Kayode Fatoba’s words, “Sky Nation’s journey has just begun, but the possibilities for success are starting to become more and more infinite with each successful milestone we achieve as a company”.


Sky Nation Attains Y-PAD Contract

May 5th, 2013

Having been one of the first companies that took a chance on Sky Nation, the Young Pan African Dialogue found themselves getting more than they could afford for a price that put a great smile on their face. Young Pan African Dialogue or Y-PAD as they are often called is a not-for-profit organization that aims to build a dynamic community that not only encourages conversations on issues related to development of the continent, but also promotes and stimulates ambitions to serve the continent and its people. According to the reference letter left by Y-PAD’s founder Thato Makgolane about SNS’s service, “Not only did Sky Nation act on the little advice offered to them by us, the company was quickly able to adjust itself to suit our specifications.” What came with securing this contract for Sky Nation was the direct ability to network with groundbreaking individuals whose collective influenced conversations between notable African leaders and diplomats. In a conversation between the C.E.O and Mr. Sunmonu, the Project Director of SNS, Mr. Fatoba states, “For us as a company to say that we want to make an impact within the continent and not be focused on understanding the socio-economical situation of that demography will not give us an edge as a start-up.” According to him, each of the contracts currently being selected and worked on at the company’s early stage are strategically meant to increase and optimize its potential and capabilities for the stage where SNS shall eventually have to compete. Y-Pad provides access to extensive research regarding specific and selective areas of the continent allowing for better understanding of issues in line with the focus of Sky Nation. This means that SNS’s interaction with Y-PAD does not just become as superficial as most relationships between the contractor and client, but a focus is put on strengthening the benefits that lie within the potential existing to grow avenues for learning and fostering real change.

He said “the goal is to put Africa online”. He also highlighted the tremendous difficulties governments and businesses in Africa encounter before they could build a standard website. South Africa is one of the country used as example; the government spent over $16 millions to build a website that cost approximately $40. With rapid growth in Internet subscription and smartphones in Africa, Sky Nation system Inc. has limitless opportunities to success.


Also in the dinner, Sky Nation Systems presented the concept of our business directory website called ASOROK. The website will host the names, addresses, locations and contacts of millions of businesses, organizations and government agencies mostly in Africa and other continents. It is one of its kinds, professionally built, with enormous information that will enable users to navigate the continent of Africa. It also gives business owners the opportunities to list their business, address and links to their personal web page. When ASOROK was presented on the dinner, it was well applauded and the idea was seen as excellent, with a potential of bringing huge returns if well marketed.
