Stears makes a pivot. Netflix finally drinks Nigerian beer.
First time reader of your newsletter and it’s the lucidity for me. Definitely moving from “updates” to “inbox”.
I love the flow of your articles. It makes me wonder the thought process if it's as smooth too lolz. Please just keep it up. I am glad you now take clients too. This is a lot of quality.
The framing did it for me. Taking complex concepts and framing them into colorful expressions. Very brilliant, I must say.
I came here after reading the Piggyvest blog article on David Adeleke. This is so nice and I wonder why I'd never heard about Communique.
Great work, sir.
I love the lucid information flow, accompanied with gentlemanly sprinkles of humour here and there. Reminds me a bit of Charles Dickens. Wonderful dissemination of information, David. Wonderful. And thanks to your friends who help you refine your essay.
The quote from Idah on the data/IT challenges of making a subscription business surprises me so much. I'm not saying I.T. is easy, but most US companies (in my experience) can get this done with a relatively small budget. You would never hear a US CEO make that comment because it would make them seem incompetent.
Clearly Idah is not incompetent and this is a real problem in Africa, hence the market opportunity. I'd love to hear more detail on what unique challenges African digital enterprises face. Lack of engineering talent? Internet infrastructure? Internet access? It could be that there aren't available out-of-the-box software products that make this much easier. Based on the Netflix section of this article it may be a bit of everything.
Had to take my time to read this edition. As usual, the research and logical reasoning makes this such an excellent read, well done David!
Lots of insight. Thanks for sharing.
i learnt so much from reading this. so impressed by the quality of your work.
Brilliant as always.
Insightful as always. 👏🏽
Brilliant work! 👏
I totally enjoyed reading this 🙌🏽🙌🏽
Smart move from Netflix. Maybe Nigerian Telcos could jump on this, because this means more heavy data consumption. It could be a new Netflix mobile data plan or some sort of partnership.
