NIFS founder Ijeoma Onah takes charge st Super TV
Content strategist and founder of the Nigeria International Film and Television Summit (NIFS), Ijeoma Onah, has moved on or rather added another pip to her shoulders. The last time we mentioned her here was when she was planning for the 2021 edition of the NIFS. But the hard working content strategist and distributor has emerged the new CEO of the new Video-On-Demand zero data-streaming platform SuperTV.
The platform is set for a commercial launch on Wednesday in Lagos and it is promoted as Nigeria’s first VOD zero data streaming service that will be available to MTN’s existing 70 million subscribers.
Onah, who sent out a private invitation to the launch, which she signed as CEO hinted that subscribers on SuperTV, will be able to stream VOD and TVOD content as live TV channels without data, thereby brining streaming to the mass market.
Industry observers are excited to note that Onah is at the driving seat. They expressed optimism that Onah will bring her experience as a content strategist to bear in running a platform that has assured that it will offer accessible, affordable and flexible pricing on various bouquets.
