DafriBank CEO Xolane Ndhlovu announces e-Top Up, splashes millions on African Young Tech Students


One of the most trusted digital banks in Africa, DafriBank has notched up its achievements with the recently launched e-Top Up feature which allows the bank’s customers to buy airtime and data with their DafriBank account instantly in over 70 countries including Nigeria.

The bank’s chairman, billionaire and philanthropist Ziggy Xolane Ndhlovu broke the news to his and the bank’s social media followers on Twitter and Instagram, where a post on his account, @xolanendhlovu reads: “We will be introducing e-Top Up in 50+ countries. You can buy airtime and data at your @Dafribank online banking and in Africa as well as USA, UK, Philippines, India, Brazil and Indonesia.”

This was coming weeks after the digital-only bank sold its shares digitally to continent-wide subscribers.

Even as they savoured the good news about the bank’s trailblazing feat, followers of Xolane Ndhlovu were also regaled with his recent philanthropy.

Dafribank’s Chairman again became a trending topic after he donated the sum of N1.5 million as support for an educational project meant for sponsorship of 200 African young tech students to a workshop.

Ndhlovu’s N1.5m was complemented by Afrobeat producer and influencer, Don Jazzy to complete the N3 million needed for the take-off of the process.

Unfortunately, though, there has been a bit of controversy about the initiator of the project sexual shenanigans with female applicants to the training.

The Nigerian-South African billionaire, investor and philanthropist’s name has been a recurrent item as far as acts of generosity across the continent since 2020 when he made a donation of 500, 000 rand to the Covid-19 fund of the South Africa government.
