The Future Awards Africa (TFAA) has announced young business leaders who are headlining its global campaign to pool 1 million young Africans to act against Ebola in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. The #StopEbola campaign will be led by TFAA Young Person of the Year 2013, Ashish Thakkar and Africa’s leading creative icons – Genevieve Nnaji, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and Paris-based Asa Elemide.

TAYO OVIOSU

Business and social leaders across the continent have also joined up, including founder of Puku S8 Meck Khalfan, and chief executive of mobile payment company Paga, Tayo Oviosu.

The #StopEbola campaign will get young Africans to support the World Health Organization by donating social media updates and a minimum of $25 between now and the awards date via the portal www.stopebola.com. The funds go directly to the United Nations Ebola Response Fund. The Future Awards Africa holds on Sunday, 7 December 2014 at the Intercontinental Hotels in Lagos, Nigeria.

Of course, I am signed up to be a #StopEbola ambassador,” said Khalfan who was named Africa Business Leader of the Year 2013 by the Corporate Council of Africa. “It is an important cause at this time and I absolutely align that Africans need to take the lead in the efforts to stop Ebola on the continent.”

Ebola has been defeated in Nigeria,” said Nnaji who has actively supported causes including the Pink Ball against cancer. “This shows that with the will and resources it can be defeated anywhere else. We need to get involved beyond talk and beyond sympathy. As long as it remains anywhere in Africa, we are all at risk, and we can come together to stop this from happening. Join me, and join all of us now on www.stopebola.com.”

NollywoodonCable Films

If you live in America and a lover of Nollywood, and cant seem to get hold of the films, well brace yourself because you are in for a surprise.

TIME WARNER, COX CABLE, PARTNERS AND AFFILLIATES WILL PREMIERE FOR THE FIRST TIME ON CABLE TV, 10 TOP-QUALITY NOLLYWOOD MOVIES ON FEBRUARY 1, 2013

TO OVER 40 MILLION NORTH AMERICAN HOMES.

A welcomed innovation in the entertainment industry is here, as Nollywood movies will now be available on major cable television networks in the U.S. courtesy of Brandcast Media, Inc. Nollywood, the leader in the African movie industry, is currently the third-largest producer of feature films in the world, ranking only behind Hollywood in the United States and India’s Bollywood as number two. Viewers of Time Warner, Cox, partners and affiliate cable television networks will now be able to watch Nollywood movies On-Demand starting February 1st, 2013. This will be a boon to millions of cable subscribers of various cultural orientations in the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean.

With the addition of Nollywood movies to Cable TV content, Brandcast Media, Inc. aims to generate crossover appeal through the exposure of this unique content to over 40 million North American homes. The movies are carefully selected high quality titles that will end the usual buyer’s remorse viewers experience with some Nollywood movies they purchase without preview. There will be no endless parts, just one complete uninterrupted movie viewing experience. With Cable, Nollywood fans that usually watch the movies online will have no concerns about Internet speed or buffering, just when the viewer is being captivated by the movie. About 80% of the movies to be shown on ‘Nollywood Hits’ have never been seen.

Some of the high quality productions to be featured on Nollywood Hits On Demand include ‘Somewhere in Africa’, ‘Mind Games’, ‘Unwanted Guest’, ‘Married But Living Single,’ etc., and will feature notable actors in the Nollywood Industry such as Genevieve Nnaji, Van Vicker, Funke Akindele, Majid Michel, Joke Silva, Omotola Jalade Ekehinde, Yvonne Nelson, and so many more.

 “The distribution of Nollywood movies on major Cable networks in the U.S. is the next logical stage in the growth of the Nollywood Movie Industry. It’s a dream come true for the many talents in the industry and the vindication of a culture often marginalized in the western market; a real chance for bilateral acculturation and the consequent achievement of crossover appeal for the movies as a cultural export from Africa. Now the world will see the real life and style of Africa in the comfort of their homes”. – Perry Umoh, President & CEO, Brandcast Media Inc.

 As a legitimate global distribution channel, Nollywood on major cable television networks will be an emergent answer to Nollywood’s rampant piracy and lack of investment and theatrical release interest. Nollywood’s presence on U.S. cable network giants will impact positively the industry’s revenue growth and address existing piracy issues. These select Nollywood movies will be available On Demand at $3.95 each.

 About Brandcast Media

Brandcast Media, Inc. is a Cross-Media company providing cross-channel marketing opportunities across mobile, email, social media and digital advertising channels to clients at affordable rates. It is wholly owned by Mr. Perry Umoh and incorporated in the State of Maryland. Following a year of relentless efforts by Brandcast Media, 40 million households in North America will now be exposed to Nollywood movies through a central distribution channel. The global legitimacy of Nollywood is underway.
