I’m Benyella Njeko, a passionate, fun loving and creative individual. I personally prefer to refer to myself as a businessman with a keen interest in media, communication and information technology.
I am a Chevening scholar and hold a Master of Arts degree in New Media and Society from the prestigious University of Leicester, UK and a Bachelor of Science degree in Journalism and Mass Communication from the University of Buea, Cameroon. I have over 14 years of experience in the web and graphic design industry with hundreds of websites, print layouts and graphic design projects under my belt. During this period a was fortunate to found and run Clone Multimedia Ltd as well as co-found the prestigious Buea Institute of Technology which now train several youths in a number of IT disciplines. My knowledge, experience and expertise has landed me a number of important roles in orther organisations as AfroVision Group where I served as Lead graphic designer, Volunteer for AFRICAphonie, a Cameroon based civil society orgnisation with focus on democracy, peace and development. I have equally served as designer and editor in chief for a local magazine Business Diary which showcases and promotes local business initiatives.
One of my greatest passion is teaching. I have had the unique previledge to serve as a part-time instructor for Online Journalism at my alma mater, University of Buea, for 5 years and counting while also offering lectures in web and graphic design at Buea institute of technology for two years.
My typical day is sitting in front of the computer screen and switching between lines of code, Adobe fireworks, WordPress, YouTube or some fine motivational book. I also am a die-hard fan of video documentaries. I love photography, making fun, crunching research data and making sense out of them or just tinkering with stuff and building things. I really cant tell if I am artist or scientist because I seem to enjoy both! Hihihihih!
At the end of the day am just a son, a brother, father, and a friend!
