Yannick Jiongo nominated Best African Male App Developer in Germany 2023 at AFRONEWS Awards 2023.

African Community Awards. AFRONEWS AWARDS 2023. Yannick Jiongo has been nominated for the Best African Male App Developer in Germany at the AFRONEWS Awards 2023 for his app ‘My Afro City’.

Who is Yannick Jiongo and his app ‘My Afro City’?

Yannick Jiongo is the brains behind the ‘My Afro City’ app. ‘My Afro City’ is a mobile app designed to make it easy for anyone to find businesses and initiatives of African origin or descent in any city in Germany and soon, throughout Europe. It is available for iPhones and Android phones.

Yannick created the app to better the experience and process of Africans living in Germany and others to enable them access to businesses and initiatives of African origin or descent in any city in Germany.

Mobile app development is the act or process by which a mobile app is developed for one or more mobile devices, which can include personal digital assistants, enterprise digital assistants, or mobile phones.

What is the ‘My Afro City app’?

My Afro City” is the largest directory of its kind in Europe. The “My Afro City” platform lists more than 2,500 black-owned businesses from various fields of activity, from hairdressers and African restaurants to fashion labels, tax consultants and doctors.

Since its launch in July 2021, “My Afro City” has helped raise awareness on more than 1,200 events and initiatives of African origin and/or related to Black and African culture (festivals, exhibitions, parties, concerts, etc.), Black entrepreneurship (workshops, job and trade fairs) and Community Live (lectures, round tables).

Highlighting the following community partnerships in 2022.

  • AiDiA – Germany’s 1st Afro-German Pitch Event (Hamburg)
  • African Film Festival (Cologne)
  • PROUD Event – Black Pop Up Market & Event (Cologne)
  • African Book Festival (Berlin)
  • Africa Film Festival Munich (Munich)

Although the app mainly promotes businesses and events run by people of African descent, “My Afro City” is an app for anyone interested in the African and black community. The app is accessible to everyone, regardless of country of origin, nationality, gender, religious or sexual orientation. We want to give everyone the opportunity to discover and participate in the African and Black community in their city.

The African community in the world is constantly growing – and we can connect them. Our long-term goal is to be able to map every initiative of Africans and Afro-descendants in every place in the world with “My Afro City”.
