Speaking at the Content Discovery event held on Thursday, March 16, Executive Head of Content and West Africa Channels, MultiChoice Nigeria, Dr Busola Tejumola, said customers should expect a new and diverse set of captivating and relatable indigenous stories across Africa Magic channels.

“It’s been 20 years of Africa Magic and Nollywood growing together, building global careers and talents. In 2003, we began the journey of telling authentic Nigerian stories on Africa Magic to build a platform where everyday Nigerians see themselves in relatable stories reflecting our culture. In 2023, we’ve found ourselves celebrating 20 years of creating and telling Nigerian stories.

“This year, we intend to break more boundaries and find new frontiers in local storytelling. We look forward to ensuring Africa Magic remains at the forefront of Nigeria storytelling. We are adding 28 more series titles and 20 original Africa Magic movies for our customers, starting from April 2023. This year, we are also investing more in our indigenous productions across our language channels: Yoruba, Hausa and Igbo,” she said.

Some of the new roll call of content includes, The Residence, Ripples, Igbo drama series, Ugwu and Iwe, Yoruba series, Apo (The Bag), among others.

Earlier, we reported that MultiChoice redefined football experience at Qatar 2022 World Cup made all 64 World Cup matches available in different local languages.

From pidgin, the official lingua franca in Nigeria and other English-speaking West African countries, to Swahili. In all, the commentary of the World Cup were in 14 local languages which offered a new and refreshing experience for the fans.

For many Nigerians, watching the World Cup with commentaries delivered in the indigenous languages, Igbo, Yoruba and Hausa, changed their perception about the competition after the Super Eagles failed to book their place in the mundial.
