The Founder of Digimillennials Media Services, Peter Pearse-Elosia, has been announced as one of the delegates of the LiftOff Waterloo Wellington Program; a A Black-led business accelerator and incubator for Black entrepreneurs in Canada.
It is no longer news that the youth of the Black race are a talented bunch. All over the globe, Black young people make statements every day with how talented they are, even beyond the very harsh sociopolitical conditions faced by many of them within their homes and outside them.
These are the talents that Digimillennials aims at showcasing to the world, one story at a time. The media outfit which has the vision of being “a definitive platform that celebrates, elevates and amplifies Black culture from Africa and around the world” has bases in Lagos, southern Nigeria; telling resplendent stories about music, film, fashion, food, sports and the urban culture of Black people in Africa and in the diaspora.
“Our essence lies at the core of the beauty of Black people,” explains Peter Pearse-Elosia, Digimillennials’ founder. “Our peculiarities and unique features make us a special pack of humans and it is only necessary that our stories are told through methods that are equally as beautiful.”
