The PLOT Thickens for Jason Njoku’s IROKO TV as Africa Magic Launches in America!


Africa Magic Go (AMGO), offers viewers the ability to tune into Africa’s best original productions via a PC for just $8 per month. The service offers hundreds of films and television programs, and no fewer than 250 original feature films have been commissioned for 2014.

Designed for African culture lovers, the latest films and series are available to stream 24/7 on computers with broadband connections. This easy-to-use service is commercial-free, and there is a one-week free trial for new subscribers. AMGO includes live streaming/pay-per-view of special events and reality shows. Plans are underway for new mobile apps that will make AMGO available on Apple and Android devices as well as other devices such as ROKU and Smart TVs.

Viewers can choose from hundreds of episodes of the most popular film and TV shows in Africa, including Nigeria’s most successful soap opera, Tinsel—a series set in the glittering world of film production, filled with intrigue, romance and deception.

Another popular option is 53 Extra is a weekly West African entertainment show named in honor of the number of countries in the African Union.

Brand-new, never-before-seen movies are also available. From Nollywood (Nigeria) comes Spinsters, a racy story about three single friends with a great reality TV concept for finding Mr. Right.

Blue Flames, another Nollywood offering, is the story of three families in a desperate quest for wealth and fulfillment—a tale of love, romance, betrayal and revenge.

For Ghallywood (Ghanaian) movie lovers there’s Moving On, the story of a woman who finds out her true love is cheating on her with her best friend, the same night she informs him she is carrying his baby.

Viewers can watch multiple episodes of the most talked about African TV shows such as Tinsel and 53 Extra in one sitting (“binge viewing”). This has been a global trend with most subscription video-on-demand services.

“With so many Africans living in the U.S., there is a great demand for programming for Africans by Africans, one that is now filled by Africa Magic GO,” said Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu, regional director at Africa Magic. “Africa Magic is committed to promoting African talent and creating global platforms that make content accessible to Africans, and those following African culture, across the world.”
