As Ben Amadasun, Netflix’s Director of Content in Africa says, “We’re in the golden age of TV and as we celebrate Africa Month this month, there’s never been a better time to celebrate our stories and storytellers who have reclaimed the African narrative of showcasing the wide variety of stories from the continent. This collection will make it easier for our members around the world to discover their next favorite African show. We’re truly excited to be part of this energy and are committed to investing in Africa’s creative ecosystem long-term’.
