About US

The latest and most innovative technology

ROi Africa is a smart technology media monitoring and intelligence provider, widely regarded as a leader in its field. Our business is to identify and make sense of media and monitoring trends. We do this by employing technology to monitor almost 200 million global social networks, 60 000 global online newspapers, thousands of printed publications and 70 radio and TV stations. ROi is owned by businessman and entrepreneur Shaka Sisulu who acquired the business from previous owner Ecsponent Limited in June 2018. Sisulu’s own media monitoring business, iKGB, is in the process of merging with ROi Africa to form an entity ready to claim a sizeable slice of the analytics market in South Africa and the rest of Africa. Ecsponent maintains exposure to ROi through a minority shareholding in Sisulu's group of digital media companies.
