iROKOtv Selling Top Nollywood DVDs on Jumia
9 September 2013. Lagos. iROKOtv today announces that it is moving into Nigeria’s DVD market, launching its new arm of the business with 17 Nollywood top titles in HD-quality. Celebrated around the world for bringing Nollywood onto the internet via www.irokotv.com, the move comes as the company seeks to fill the gap in the current market for legally produced, well packaged and top quality DVDs for those who do not have access to the Internet or who prefer to watch their favourite movies on disc.
The 17 titles, include ‘Baby Oku in America’,‘Mrs. Somebody’, ‘Somewhere in Africa’, ‘Single and Married’ and ‘Oga On Top’ and are currently being sold on Nigeria’s number one e-commerce platform, Jumia. Each unit costs N495 [excluding postage costs] and can be shipped to anywhere in Nigeria.
Adibeli Nduka-Agwu, Head of Business for iROKOtv says: “With the launch of our DVD business in Nigeria, we feel that we’re ‘coming home’ and providing awesome Nollywood movies, beautifully boxed and published in HD, to the world’s biggest Nollywood fanbase; Nigeria. Not all Nigerians have access to broadband internet connectivity, but we didn’t want our Nigerian Nollywood fans to miss out on getting access to the top movies, hence we’ve moved into DVDs as well as our website www.irokotv.com.
“Now, with the launch of iROKOtv DVD, we are making the likes of Nollywood superstars Uche Jombo, Mercy Johnson, Majid Michel, Mr Ibu and Ramsey Nouah available online and offline 24 hours a day, however people want to access their favourite movies”.
iROKOtv will also be stocking its DVD in stores across Lagos including Ikeja, Anthony Village, Festac and the Island.
iROKOtv only publishes movies that have been legally licensed so that the movie pirates are not profiting from copyright theft.
