Stella Damascus and Boyfriend, Daniel Ademinokam, Set to launch a TV Station


Nollywood actress, Stella Damasus, and her boyfriend,  Daniel Ademinokan, are set to launch the test transmission of their online television station called Mon Afrik TV.
 Afrik TV is a blend of BET, MTV, E-ONLINE, NBC and CW Network all rolled into one but with 100% per cent African content.
The actress said that with what they have created, they want Africans all over the world to see this as their own medium of expression, not just another TV station
His partner, Daniel, on the other hand said Mon Afrik TV would fill a big vacuum, and also serve as respite for less content providers who can’t afford the fee of other television stations.
He said;

“We see no reason why a struggling producer who could barely afford to raise the capital to make his or her TV show should also look for money to pay the TV stations for airtime,”

“After that, they have to convince brands to place adverts on the show before they can start making any money. That is extremely discouraging for independent producers.

“Mon Afrik TV is creating a platform where producers can showcase their works to the world and make good money for themselves without having to deal with the run-around from TV stations.

“This is not a Video-on-Demand platform for movies and is not trying to pry into an already saturated market,” Ademinokan said.

The filmmaker stressed that Mon Afrik TV would deliver world-class, premium entertainment content from and about Africa to the world.

“Africa has often been represented as a dark, isolated continent.

“Yes, Africa has issues, just like every other continent but there is more to us than starving children, gun wielding terrorists, arid lands and dilapidated buildings in remote villages.

“We have beautiful cultures, a vibrant entertainment industry and entertainers who have conquered the world on many levels and we want to showcase that to the world.

“The station is set for official launch in January 2016,” Daniel added.
Stella and Daniel were recently in the news for eloping to the US with Daniel's son from his previous marriage. The news spread like wild fire and the internet accused Stella of snatching Daniel away from his wife, and booom! disappeared with him to the US.  
Anyway it's good to see that they are still pushing through!.
