Africa’s Film Industry Continues To Attract Non-Historical Partner

Despite the economic challenges on the continent due to various factors, the entertainment and film industry in Africa remains relentless.

Filled with enormous talents, the industry is traveling round the world and everyone is nodding to the sound of its originality and finding more hidden stories in every word uttered.

As African stories become more globally recognized and appealing through its music, the film industry is not left behind.

China, U.S., among others are showing huge interest to collaborate and boost the economy.


On the continent, one of the booming film industries Nollywood in Nigeria, is the world’s second-largest film industry in terms of output. But now the scripts are being re-written as movies with better quality rather than quantity are being produced.

Movie streaming giants such Netflix and Disney+ are also on the queue.

Before now, China has shown key interest in Africa investing in railways and the manufacturing industry. As of now, money and ideas are being poured into the film industry as well.

Few months ago in October, according to Moses Babatope, the co-founder of FilmOne Entertainment, partnerships with international film industries  will continue to support the production of quality movies.

“We will be exposed to a lucrative and moving Chinese film market. It’s like skipping many hurdles and getting access to an existing mature market,” Babatope said.
