Telling the African story is not new. For a very long time, Africans have expressed the narrative of their culture, beliefs, fears and exploits using stories passed from one generation to the next.

Through oral traditions and accounts of eyewitnesses, we know about the riches of Mansa Musa, the exploits of Sango, the majesty of Nefertiti, and the conquests of Shaka Zulu.

What has changed is the medium through which these stories are told.

In this season, I will be chronicling part of that story.

I will be starting with a mini-series that features some of the key figures that have built video on demand platforms specifically for African content.
