Nafisa Akabor

My name is Nafisa Akabor and I’m a freelance technology journalist. Wired to the Web is my tech blog that covers mobile, gadgets, apps, how-tos, travel and cars.

I have been writing about consumer and business technology since 2007 after my runner-up award as a Citizen Journalist at the Telkom ICT Awards 2006.

My work appears in newspapers, magazines, online, radio, and podcasts. I’ve been published on TechCentral, Financial Mail, Quartz, Mail & Guardian, City Press, Forbes Africa, Forbes Woman Africa, Sawubona, TFG Tech, Brainstorm, Digital Life, and ITWeb; and various lifestyle titles (Your Family, Marie Claire, Women’s Health, Edgars Club mag).

I’ve also done corporate blogging for ShowMax, Nokia, Microsoft, Samsung, BCX, iFix, Nashua, Vodacom, Barclays, Absa, Mercedes-Benz and Telkom.

I currently contribute tech in a freelance capacity for various titles on an on-going basis, such as the Financial Mail, City Press, Forbes Africa, TechCentral, Sawubona and I also write for niche custom publications, do corporate blogging and copywriting.

I’m one of the judges for the Consumer Awards, and previously judged the SA leg of the global TADHACK hackathon; MTN Business App of the Year; and Entelect’s in-house Tech Accelerator initiative.
