Speaking with Word Is, the company's business development executive Mohammed Kawosha, said that Kenya, being an investment and entertainment hub for the East and Central Africa, positions itself as a viable centre for investment in the broad entertainment industry. “We are so pleased to launch in Kenya because it being a hub for this region, places us at a better position to explore the vast talent that remains unexploited. So, we are here for the long term, both in music and film production.”
