I am one of the founding directors of Africa Digital Media Group which also runs Africa Digital Media Institute and Studios based in Nairobi Kenya. I have an MA in Film Distribution and Marketing from Birmingham City University and I believe I have the skills necessary to make content distribution business succeed. The platform aims to reach or serve 1B Africans on the continent and in the diaspora.
