#9: Creating Vortex Inc With Somto Ajuluchukwu

November 20, 2016

I had the pleasure of interviewing Somto Ajuluchukwu, the founder & CEO of Vortex Inc, an animation and comic company. Somoto founded this company in July 2015 and has published over 33 comics to date.

I was very excited to interview him because he is a fellow content creator and is invested in exporting African culture through animation and comics. Vortex Inc is an award winning company and this is just the beginning! It’s time to change the persistent negative perception of Africa in the media and it was a pleasure speaking to someone who is actively doing something about it. Enjoy the interview below.
