Entertainment NBC Plans Better Content for Nollywood

The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has announced a partnership with stakeholders in the Nigerian entertainment and broadcast industries in a bid to set up a system to co-produce, buy, sell, finance and distribute entertainment content in Nigeria.

In a recent meeting with stakeholders in Lagos, the Director General of the NBC, Mr. Emeka Mba, revealed the commission’s readiness to work with 'MIPCOM;' a TV and entertainment market.

At the 2014 edition of Africast; a conference platform where broadcast issues as they relate to Africa are thrashed out biennially by professionals, Mba enjoined practitioners to be open-minded adding that this would impact positively on the sector.

He explained that the idea was to make Africa a prime destination for content every year to enable producers find a market for their works.
