Timilehin Bello, the CEO of Media Panache Lagos has recently emerged as the only Nigerian ton the list of 25 innovators in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
The ranking body which focuses on shining spotlight on individuals who are reshaping influence and engagement in an era of dramatic marketing and communications disruption selected the 25 innovators from UK, Germany, UAE, Sweden, Belgium, Ireland, Russia, Bulgaria, Italy, Nigeria, and South Africa.
The young boss took to his social pages to share the good news. In his words, he said “We did it Nigeria! We did it! Okay, I just want to use this medium to announce that I’ve been listed as one of the Top 25 Innovators in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) by one of the world’s most trusted PR Platforms; the Holmes Report. Being the only Nigerian on the list is beyond humbling – I am incredibly proud of the exponential growth our PR industry has achieved in recent times! I just want to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported myself and Media Panache from the get-go. This God’s Grace is sufficient for us.”
In less than two years, the 26 years old entrepreneur has established a solid footing in his industry in Nigeria, gathering local thought leaders to his team and proving himself to be one to watch in African PR. Bello’s company, Media Panache Nigeria, handled what is thought to be Africa’s biggest-ever gig by Nigerian singer-songwriter Davido in December 2017, which trended worldwide.
Outside the agency, Bello has had a positive impact on Nigerian young people, including launching the “Inspire Youngsters” campaign to educate students on how to use social and digital media. Congratulations Timi, we at Temmy Balogun Media celebrates you.
