Here are the Two Great African Musicians Who Recently Set Up their Own TV and Radio Stations

While other celebrities would go for a car or a house as a gift on their birthdays, Nigerian rapper Olamide didn’t, instead he decided to celebrate and mark his birthday on Thursday, March 15, by announcing on his Instagram page the launch of his own Television Station, VOTS (Voice of the Streets), a perfect birthday gift, isn’t it?.

“It’s been all joy and blessings for me since I started my journey to being the man I dreamt to be. Though I had a lot of hurdles and setbacks, I kept moving because I was certain of what was inside of me. Today is another special day marking the beginning of another special year in my life and I also have the privilege of owning a T.V station that would change the face of entertainment in Africa. As one of the first African entrepreneurs to own a channel, I am giving out 100 decoders (PLAY TV) to the first 100 people to get to PLAY TV’s premise today. Each decoder comes with a fully paid one-year subscription to say thank you for standing by me. Thank you for your love and support. We shall celebrate more greatness.”

In another post, the award-winning rapper, also known as “Baddo” dedicated his TV station to his family, fans and day ones.
