Multichoice Africa sure knows how to throw a hedonistic party if anything to assert itself as the numero uno conduit for the globe’s top three content producers. Tuesday’s opening night of the second edition of its aptly titled #OnlyTheBest Content Showcase Extravaganza in Mauritius took the form of a cabaret-styled Broadway-themed show. Guests had their names plastered on the walkway in the form of Hollywood stars. They included Nollywood star Genevieve Nnaji alongside Rita Dominic, Desmond Elliot and Ramsey Nuoah. Music guests Flavour, Stonebwoy and The Mavins provided the soundtrack guests tapped their feet to.
MultiChoice Africa’s CEO Tim Jacobs took time to make some bold promises.
“We believe television is an extremely powerful tool that can educate, entertain and inform. The evolution of this medium has become fast and furious and as a business we are constantly evolving to stay ahead. MultiChoice’s business is built around three key pillars: people; content – in the form of great entertainment, news and sport – and the latest cutting-edge technology. Our mission is to ensure that our subscribers do not miss out on any of the stories, events or moments that are shaping our future.” Some of the channels previewing their content at the Mauritius showcase include Sony, SuperSport, Zee TV, A+E, Disney, MTV Base, BET, Comedy Central, BBC and M-Net.
