Congratulations to Seun and we all know he's not under 30.
Re: Seun Osewa Recognized By Forbes Africa by Ejine(m): 7:42am On Feb 24, 2013
It's really nice that Seun was listed by Mfonobong Nsehe in his article.

However, what I find worrying is that this same Mfonobong Nsehe listed the heavily indebted and financially ruined Femi Otedola as one of the billionaires to watch in 2013.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/mfonobongnsehe/2012/11/20/ten-african-millionaires-to-watch-in-2012/

Weird.

All the same, congrats Seun... Hoping the list is credible, that is.
Re: Seun Osewa Recognized By Forbes Africa by Ejine(m): 7:44am On Feb 24, 2013
And then again, that area of the Forbes site is free-for-all.
Anybody can open a blog account there and write anything.

Even me undecided

Re: Seun Osewa Recognized By Forbes Africa by Nobody: 8:21am On Feb 24, 2013
Anything from Mfonosong is Forbes official. He is a staff of Forbes Africa and Forbes definitely won't publish something they don't endorse. He did his NYSC with my former company before joining Forbes Africa.

But that article cannot be less than 3 months old because Mfo has left Forbes for Bloomsberg, except the article was prepared before he left.

Nsehe is not a freelancer. He was Forbes Africa staff. His articles have been used by Forbes Africa as cover story for its paper edition November 2011.

He's probably around 30/31. I read he founded Nairaland at the age of 23, that was in march 2005 which is 7 years ago.
