CNBC Africa silent as the mother brand CNBC kicks off its 25th anniversary today.

There's not as much as a peep from CNBC Africa (DStv 410) as its mother brand CNBC kicks off its 25 anniversary today.

The business media group Africa Business News (ABN), the holding company of CNBC Africa and Forbes Africa on the African continent couldn't be bothered with any press or publicity regarding CNBC's 25th birthday.

Nor does CNBC Africa bother with the "CNBC First 25" - the CNBC list of the 25 people who have had the greatest influence in business since the original American business brand launched as a TV business news channel in 1989.

Tyler Mathisen will appear tonight on CNBC Africa when CNBC Africa carries CNBC, to report on CNBC's 25th anniversary and the list of nominees. CNBC announced 200 nominees today which will be whittled down to the eventual "CNBC First 25" in April.
