This May, Africa Month, DStv and GOtv are excited to announce the launch of ‘The Africa We See’ campaign, a heart-warming celebration of the excellence and power of Africa, its people and the rich stories that come from the continent.
Africans are shaping and owning their narrative through stories and music – and this Africa Month, DStv and GOtv are proud to serve as vehicles that share these stories far and wide.
“Although the current climate demands everyone to physically isolate it has, in so many ways, called people to come together and unite in celebrating what matters the most: resilience, sense of community, creativity and so much more. Attributes that perfectly illustrate the very essence of who we are as Africans” says Martin Mabutho, Chief Customer Officer, MultiChoice Nigeria, “It is in light of this, that we celebrate the distinctively African talent and entertainment on our channels that reflect the stories and lives of our treasured viewers across the continent”
A variety of channels that speak to all Africans.
