I’m not a VoD service provider to know how it feels to see Netflix’s growing interest in Nollywood content, but I think I wouldn’t feel safe.
And I believe this fear is reasonable.
It almost seems there’s enough to go round, but it is unlikely that there’s a fair competition between Netflix and the likes of Funke Akindele’s Sceneone TV, Ibaka TV, and the new EbonyLife ON.
iROKOtv that appears to be gaming the system clearly has its unique audience, add that to the advantage of years of operating. I think up and coming ones should learn from this and failure of some others.
Anyways, do you have any sentiments about Netflix’s Nollywood interest?
Should more Nigerian VoD platforms bother to come into the space?
