You’re probably wondering how a random newsletter can make you smarter in just five minutes. We’d wonder the same thing too, except that TC Daily isn’t just any newsletter. It’s a revamped, easy-read newsletter from TechCabal, containing every tidbit you need to know about tech in Africa. Even the ones you think don’t concern you end up being important. Remember that beer parlour argument about how Netflix would kill DStv in Africa? Yep, the TC Daily covered that. 

How about Erica, Kidd and co. helping DSTV drive its new product, Showmax? The TC Daily tells us about that too. 

While many tech publications like to use a lot of tech jargon, TC Daily keeps it simple. It uses bite-sized pieces to inform you about everything you need to know on the African tech scene.

Paystack’s $200m acquisition? TC Daily explains all of that too

When news broke that Paystack had been acquired for $200m, the Nigerian tech scene went wilddd. You, on the other hand, didn’t get what all the fuss was about.

On these issues and many more, TC Daily keeps you knowledgeable and up-to-speed with tech industry happenings, so that you can soro soke next time people are discussing in the beer parlour.

TC Daily just doesn’t give you the news; it also provides context so you can better understand wetin dey sup.

It compresses all the tech news into a 5-minute read, leaving you much knowledgeable than you were before you started the newsletter and gaining you several cool points in the eyes of your crush.
