Respected Nigerian filmmaker, Tunde Kelani is set to launch an online TV on Friday August 7th. tundekelani.tv; the online TV is posed to stream rich African themed content for viewers globally. The new online platform, tundekelani.tv is web – based and mobile friendly as subscribers can watch content on all mobile devices.
The video channel is designed to offer viewers a refreshing viewing experience of past and current works of the award winning film director and other cultural themed contents from different owners across Africa and the Diaspora.
T.K as the veteran is fondly called has been quoted to say:
“It is an attempt to respond to the yearnings of our teeming fans of rich African themed contents on the go. Distributing films or other contents physically are becoming increasingly difficult, revenues are lost on a daily basis and content owners are at the mercy of the menacing activities of pirates. I think it is just natural, expedient and sensible to take contents closer to the consumers on demand and in terms that suit all the parties involved.”
There will be a wide range of genre, including movies, high quality drama, interviews and documentaries that focus on societal issues available to subscribers of tundekelani.tv.
Kelani’s past production such as Oleku, Agogo Ewo, Saworoide, Thunderbolt( Magun), Narrow Path, Campus Queen and Maami will be available for subscribers. His latest experience work Yeepa, an adaptation of Prof. Femi Osofisan’s classic play, Yeepa Solarin Nbo, will also be on the play list.
This is Tunde Kelani’s effort to beat parasitic sharp practices of piracy in the Nigeria Movie Industry
