Njoku founded several internet companies before launching Iroko Partners, one of Africa’s largest digital media distributors, in October 2010.

Iroko now has a turnover of tens of millions of dollars through its two platforms iROKOtv (for movies) and iROKING (for Nigerian music).

Iroko is YouTube’s biggest partner in Africa, with nearly 200m views via its channels Nollywood Love and Aruba Love.

The company could soon fill the distribution gap not only for Nollywood but for the rest of African cinema too.

Understand Africa's tomorrow... today

We believe that Africa is poorly represented, and badly under-estimated. Beyond the vast opportunity manifest in African markets, we highlight people who make a difference; leaders turning the tide, youth driving change, and an indefatigable business community. That is what we believe will change the continent, and that is what we report on. With hard-hitting investigations, innovative analysis and deep dives into countries and sectors, The Africa Report delivers the insight you need.
