New York (TADIAS) – The New African Magazine has announced its annual list of ‘Most Influential Africans.’ The 2014 list includes renowned Ethiopian entrepreneur Bethlehem Tilahun Alemu, Founder and CEO of SoleRebels, which opened its first flagship U.S. store in Silicon Valley, California last month. In its announcement the magazine states: “In every corner of the continent, wherever there is injustice, oppression or tyranny, Africans of every stripe – from young to old, male to female, brave to even braver – are fighting and working for a better tomorrow. Africa is on the move. Given this transformation, happening at every level in every country, it may seem foolhardy to pick out just a hundred or so individuals of note as the continent’s most influential people. But in every march and movement, there are always a few figures who lead the line and who stick their heads above the parapets before anyone else – these can be trendsetters, visionaries, heroes, and at times even rabble-rousers whose actions or lack thereof, make or break the continent. Wielding influence comes in diverse forms and this collection portrays just that.”

“I am deeply honored to be named to this list of incredible personalities,” Bethlehem said in a statement.
