November 30, 20170
REDTV is #winning at prestigious awards as it marks its second year of running…
Launched in December 2015, REDTV is a dynamic online lifestyle channel that spotlights Africa with a distinct global appeal. Supported by the United Bank for Africa, REDTV is passionate about creating fresh and exciting African content.
True to this, REDTV has been able to produce some of the very best African content across the diaspora garnering over 2 million views on YouTube, nominations at several international award shows and the attention of media heavy weights like Freemantle Media, BET Networks and Viacom.
As REDTV turns 2, the channel was recognized this year at the 2017 Nigerian Entertainment Awards (NEA) for two original shows. Seyitan Atigarin won Best TV Presenter for her work on The Sauce and Oreka Godis won Best Lead Role in a TV Series for her outstanding performance on Our Best Friend’s Wedding.
The NEA’s were established in New York City in January 2006 to serve the growing African population in North America. It recognizes the contributions of African entertainers to the entertainment industry and aims to promote the image and culture of Nigeria. This has increased the awareness of a new edgy style of African entertainment that has helped promote Nigerian acts to the world.
As REDTV continues to grow and blossom the channel is committed to creating and producing quality content, relevant to Africans across the continent and across the Diaspora.
