Oluchi Enuha, General Manager of IrokoX says: “At IrokoX, we remain passionate in supporting and developing African creatives and influential personalities across all social media channels, working with them to share and promote their talents to a global audience. We developed the Afro All Stars League as a vehicle to showcase an everyday side to media personalities in a way that people could relate to. The show is unscripted, and entertaining to people from all walks of life. It also gives well-known celebrities and brands a vehicle with which they can promote their new products or their brand outside of generic content marketing
“We’ve seen for ourselves how short form African content, streamed online, is growing massively in popularity and across our networks, we have noticed how celebrities and brands want to connect with
audiences in new and innovative ways. Afro All Stars League has been developed as an alternative medium for African celebrities to bring their brand and products to new and highly engaged audiences.”
IrokoX is a Pan-African, full service Multi-Platform Network [MPN] and was launched by Africa’s leading digital entertainment company, Iroko, in 2016.
