Jason Njoku announces, on his blog, that he is essentially making a come back with the music subsidiary arm of his IROKO Partners, IROKING. He also shares metrics and announces 1.1 million unique visitors last month, alone, for Iroking.
If you all recall, in recent times, Njoku was named CEO of IROKING after the sensational exit of former CEO, Michael Ugwu. In the meantime, Ugwu is quietly building out FreemeDigital.com. It is now confirmed that he is indeed the founder of the company, as I suspected some months back and discussed here.
I’ve been on keen observation mode, taking in all the interesting moves in the music-tech space. Interesting moves, collabos and definitely legal issues ahead. Keep it locked on AML and don’t you dare touch that dial. 🙂 Boyz and girlz are not smiling.
“Folk say I talk too much. Lets start with sharing some numbers. We are quietly building out the new version of iROKING which will soon become apparent in the next few weeks and months. I am a massive fan of owned and operated platforms. iROKOtv was my first attempt. iROKING 3.0 will be my next. No marketing, no hype, nothing just the most awesome music based platform in Nigeria. Above is what we have achieved so far. New logo for the new rebranding is below. . .” Just me. Jason Njoku has the full story.
