NYAC S3 E7: Calling All African Filmmakers (w/ Michael Maponga of AfroLandTV)

On this episode, we speak with Michael (@MichaelMaponga), actor and CEO of AfroLandTV, about his journey as an actor and entrepreneur. We chat about Hollywood’s portrayal of Africa, how to navigate being typecast, and what distinguishes his streaming platform, AfroLandTV, from similar sites. He tells us his criteria for classifying media as “premium African” content, the barriers to distributing African content, and his big dreams for African media in general and AfroLandTV in particular.
