Step aside Omotola – there’s a new FB millionaire in town, and it’s none other than MTVBase.
The pan-African music network is rolling out the drums to celebrate the big feat, becoming the biggest music community on Facebook in Africa.
Commenting on the stride, Senior Vice President & Managing Director, Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Africa, Alex Okosi, stated, ‘It is gratifying to see the positive results of the investment we have made in ensuring that young music lovers can explore and exploit multiple media platforms to connect with the MTV Base brand and actively interact with the content they love.’
Nigeria has over six million Facebook users, with the bulk of that number young men and women drunk on the spirit of social media. Just like Omotola, and Enoch Adeboye who have huge following here in Africa, MTV is building up its influence, riding on its continental operations, with engaging music and video contents.
MTV Base Africa was launched in February 2005 throughout the African continent to deliver a uniquely engaging mix of entertainment, interactivity, aspirational imagery and programme content.
