Qoqoriqo (prounounced Ko-Ko-Ri-Ko), is a web-based, mobile-enabled app, which allows people to enter the mobile number and email address of their loved one and search for others who have also entered the same details for their partner.
If not current information is found, users can set up alerts on their partner’s details, so that they are notified as soon as someone adds details containing the same information that may arouse suspicion.
If a search brings back potential connections, those users have the option to enter a public forum and discuss potential infidelity either directly or via the forum. They can then gather evidence such as photographs, mobile phone bills, email exchanges and more, in order to prove their partner’s infidelity.
Qoqoriqo was founded by Mawuna Koutonin, a 39 year-old web entrepreneur from Africa who has previously pioneered the concept of “Play marketing” with his company Goodbuzz.
Mawuna came up with the idea after seeing a friend’s partner out one night with another girl and felt sorry for her being at home completely unaware of what he was up to. He wondered whether the girl who was with him that evening knew either and how different it might be if they were alerted to his infidelity.
“Qoqoriqo is quite simply, a search engine dedicated to infidelity fact checking. People invariably leave tracks when they are dating or flirting, Qoqoriqo uses a collaborative fact-collecting tool to help people find out the truth about their relationship. It’s a Crowdsourced relationship status update to detect deception.”

Here’s HOW DOES QOQORIQO WORKS
Susan wants to check on her boyfriend John, whose late stays at his job are becoming more frequent and prolonged.
She went to Qoqoriqo.com and entered John’s email address and phone number into the Qoqoriqo search engine; but nothing showed up there.
Nevertheless, Susan decided to create 2 alerts on John email address and phone number on Qoqoriqo.
3 days later, after a coverage of Qoqoriqo in the press, Susan received 2 intriguing alert messages: 2 girls in London declared they were in a relationship with John and 1 other declared she was an ex-girlfriend of John.
Susan, heart fast beating, logged into Qoqoriqo and entered into the forum Qoqoriqo has created on John.
Susan can now contact the other 3 girls and ask them questions either publicly or privately.
After few emails exchange with the 3 girls, Susan has a load of proof (including photos and email copies) that John was indeed dating 2 other girls in the city, and has had an affair with the 3rd girl while they were already in a relationship.
Qoqoriqo has done its job.
Now, it’s up to Susan to make up her mind!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I pronounce Qoqoriqo?
The easiest way to explain it is to say ‘ko-ko-ri-ko’
Who created it?
Qoqoriqo is founded by Mawuna Koutonin, a 39 year-old web entrepreneur from Africa who has previously pioneered the concept of “Play marketing” with his company Goodbuzz. Mawuna is also the Editor of SiliconAfrica.com, a blog dedicated to people who are changing the face of Africa with innovation, technology and entrepreneurship. Mawuna’s ultimate dream is to open a school in Africa in 2017.
Where did the idea come from?
Mawuna was in a bar with some friends and just spotted a guy he happened to know kissing a girl, while he knew he had a girlfriend. It then dawned on Mawuna that the idea of an app could help his lovely girlfriend, who was having some sweet dreams (possibly about him) in her bed, at home, to figure this out before it’s too late. Qoqoriqo is the Coq [rooster] sound to alert her to wake up to the reality of her relationship!
What made Mawuna decide to create Qoqoriqo?
He just thought it would be fun to do it! Once he started looking into it in more detail, Mawuna was amazed by the huge number of people who are affected by infidelity.
Can you explain what Qoqoriqo is; is it a mobile app?
No, it’s a web app as opposed to a mobile or smartphone app. Though, there is now a blurring line between web app and mobile app. Qoqoriqo is fully accessible on smartphone and tablets because it’s optimised with html5 technology.
How exactly does it work?
Firstly, Qoqoriqo doesn’t locate data on people’s mobile phones or breach any data protection laws. Qoqoriqo is quite simply, a search engine dedicated to infidelity fact checking. People leave tracks when they are dating or flirting. Qoqoriqo use a collaborative fact collecting tool to help people find out the truth about their relationship. It’s a Crowdsourced relationship status update to detect deception.
Ok, is it possible to manipulate the results (so could someone enter false information about a person, perhaps to get revenge?)
Unfortunately, It’s possible that some people would try to manipulate the results. However, Qoqoriqo is not limited to the search results. Like Google results are the first steps into discovering the content you are looking for.
The best way to make one’s mind is to get into contact with the other person and fact check their statement. There is a public forum to share information and also, users can privately contact each other. If the other party can’t share more information about their relationship status with the person in question, they can quickly be dismissed.
