Gokada becomes only the third African (and Nigerian) startup that Rise Capital has invested in, after iROKOtv and PrepClass.

I really hope that things on his behalf would be more than really good, it's quite hard to get investments on any round especially round A which comes way later after seed money I would say, usually lot of times are passing by here totally.
