Media & Advertising

Nigeria Media 2012
With a population of some 160m, Nigeria has one of the most active media sectors of any emerging market. Excluding satellite networks, 147 television stations and 100 radio stations fill the airwaves. The dramatic rise of Nollywood in the past decade has spurred global interest from viewing audiences and investors alike, and the industry is poised to be a major force both domestically and internationally. Despite the encouraging signs, challenges to expansion remain. Among these are the high costs associated with unreliable infrastructure, including electricity outages and unrefined distribution networks, which hamper circulation. An overdependence on advertising revenues may also prove problematic, and, there remains a degree of uncertainty concerning Nigeria’s regulatory environment with respect to broadcast and online media. This chapter contains an interview with Jason Njoku, Founder and CEO, iROKO Partners.
