The African Tech Roundup podcast delivers independent Africa-focused technology, digital and innovation insight and analysis. The show is produced by broadcaster and entrepreneur, Andile Masuku (, and co-hosted by founder and writer of The Subtext (, Osarumen Osamuyi. African Tech Roundup is a Johannesburg-based media and insights organisation, aka village square, which tracks the progress of Africa’s emerging digital, tech and innovation industries.

We produce podcasts, syndicated op-eds, omnichannel media projects, live events, in-depth fringe insights coverage of leading conferences and bespoke stakeholder interventions— with a finger on the pulse of the most pertinent ecosystem issues and aspirations, and a penchant for extracting and delivering candid insight and analysis.

We also play a key network mapping role which helps industry stakeholders gauge the nature and strength of the often indistinct interpersonal and inter-organisational relationships at play within the ecosystem.
