Spotlight On!| W Talk App | Available Now
Founded 3 years ago by Tobi Olujinmi, W Talk is a faith-based entertainment network packed FULL of original scripted web series’, chat shows, reality shows, podcasts, devotionals and MORE!
Tobi has now launched the W Talk App! So you’ll have all this content at your fingertips. It’s the first faith-based App of its kind and content wise, it’s certainly not what you’d expect – this is REAL, RELATABLE, DOWN TO EARTH STUFF!
We’ve watched over the years as the platform has developed and advanced and we can honestly say we’ve witnessed a God-ordained labour of love.
We tip our hats to Tobi for being obedient to her calling – A little Background: she’s a Lawyer by profession and quit her position at one of the world’s most renowned law firms to build this tech start-up and develop its original content, she’s also a Wife and Mother who juggles an international public speaking career…yup, we have no idea how she does it all either, but we’re HERE for her journey.
More details here, pre-order the app here, and join us for the launch night (details below)
