In a statement, Yakontent highlighted that, “There are so many talented young Africans who are yet to be discovered, uncovered, unearthed and nurtured.Our beliefs and guiding principles are based on finding and showcasing the diamond in the rough,”
The Yako Story Initiative therefore is a collaborative undertaking which provides a unique opportunity to deliberately market, expose, promote and showcase these diamonds which would never have been discovered otherwise.”
The first Yako Story is about Shihan Samson Muripo, a two-time World Karate Champion arguably the most decorated Zimbabwean Athlete, who went beyond his very humble beginnings to become the first black World Karate Champion.
This is a story of Hope, Possibility, Self-Belief, Mastery, Discipline, Determination, Perseverance and Hard work.
