It’s been barely a week since we hosted the African Tech Round-up LIVE: State of the Startup event in Johannesburg, and believe it or not, next week will mark the 100th podcast we’ll have published in consecutive weeks.

We’ve done our best to deliver the biggest digital, tech and innovation headlines from Africa and beyond while offering candid analysis and commentary, as well as useful insights gleaned from some of the Africa’s leading entrepreneurs, executives, investors and technical talent.

The conversation we’re sharing on this week’s show brings things full-circle in that the show’s host, Andile Masuku, finally got to meet the Texas-based Nigerian, Bola Lawal, in person at our recent event– after they interacted online, brought together by the podcast. It’s humbling to realise how this little podcast has grown into a lively international community of people– Africans and otherwise, who are actively involved and/or care deeply about the continent’s growing tech ecosystem.

Bola is one of the co-founders of ScholarX, an app designed to help African students access scholarships abroad. In this chat, he talks about how ScholarX is committed to helping Africans access the very best education possible through scholarships, and he gives his take on the emergence of MOOC’s and eLearning in general.
