The dream to showcase the 2019 comedy blockbuster, Knockout to a wider audience may be coming to reality, as the producer, Wale Adenuga Productions (WAP), has announced its signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Media Pros Africa, a Kenya-based international film agency owned by seasoned industry player – Wangeci Murage, for the global distribution of the comedy movie through various means, including, but not limited to VOD, TVOD, SVOD, Cinema, Pay TV, Free-to-Air, and Terrestrial.
Speaking about the deal, the executive producer of the comic flick, Wale Adenuga Jnr., said: “We are pleased to have finally come to a global distribution agreement with such a reputable organisation as Media Pros Africa, as well as Osezua Stephen-Imobhio’s Oduma Creative Worx Ltd, through which the deal was brokered.”
