MultiChoice Talent Factory (MTF) has launched a podcast series called This is Africa which will be hosted by Nikita Neo Mokgware and Serena Mmifinyana.
This is Africa podcast will chop it up on all things news, trends and everything that makes Africa’s entertainment industry crackle and pop, it is going to be pitched under N&M productions.
For the Botswana native Nikita Neo Mokgware the podcasts presents a perfect platform for young Africans to start tapping in both as listeners and content creators.
“If there is anything that the pandemic has shown us that there is more room to create, inform and entertain than ever before.
There are so many new shows, films, collaborations and productions happening in the creative film and TV industry, and we can’t wait to dive in and really unpack them,” Mokgware said.
Similarly, for fellow Motswana Serena Mmifinyana, the This is Africa podcast will be the perfect opportunity to really sink into popular African film and TV culture.
“We want to start building a culture of engaging, appreciating and analyzing the work that we as Africans do in our industry and there is no better way than creating such a forum than through this series.
The continent has a lot to offer, so let’s talk about it,” Mmifinyana said.
The two were part of the MTF Class of 2019 from the Southern African hub and were writers of the MTF film, ‘The Painting,’ which aires on Zambezi Magic in September 2019 and which is now available on Showmax.
The podcast will also feature special guests from industry, veterans to emerging creators, and the hosting duo will give a much needed look at entertainment in Africa.
