“I cannot wait to meet fans in South Africa; I know they are very passionate about Nollywood. I have worked with the iROKOtv team for a while and I have to say they have had a considerable effect on the Nigerian movie industry – a very positive effect,” says Mama G.
Jason Njoku, founder CEO of iROKO Partners, comments: “iROKO has developed massively since it was founded in 2010 but our commitment to delivering awesome Nigerian content hasn’t changed, which is why we decided to produce these DVDs for our Johannesburg fans.
