Kilonshele.com is a new e-commerce site that provides ticket sales, marketing and distribution services as well as connects the world to live entertainment events in Nigeria by providing up-to-date information on live events and giving fans opportunity to buy tickets conveniently.
The word “Kilonshele” (pronounced – kee-lone-sheh-leh) is a Yoruba word meaning “what’s happening?” or “what’s going on”?
While writing this post, the site was not accessible, so I guessed the founders deliberately put it off until the official launch today (6pm) at the Silverbird Galleria. So I couldn’t check out their features, technicalities et al. But my colleague over at Web Trends Nigeria did a review of the service.
However, I found that Kilonshele’s logo has an icon (on/off button) that is ubiquitous: too common, too popular. It can be seen everywhere: on phones, laptops, etc Again, the icon on the logo should have been a green colour, instead of red, since red signifies switching off, while green denotes switched on. Plus, the green colour represents anything Nigerian.
Beyond this, Kilonshele.com seems like a start-up to watch!
Update: When you register as a member, the red button switches to green. That’s when you’re switched on!
