Africa is the world's second-largest continent, with a population of over 1.2 billion people. It is a diverse continent with 54 countries, and many different languages, and cultures.
The development of Africa has been a long process that has seen many different stages and periods of time. It was not until the end of the 19th century that Africa started to be colonized by European nations. This led to an increase in trade and economic development for the African countries, but this also led to many wars across Africa as European nations fought for control over territory and resources.
The entertainment industry in Africa has been growing rapidly in recent years with more people being able to afford TVs and other devices that allow them access to TV channels from all around the world. The entertainment industry in Africa is now worth $200 billion per year, with Nigeria and South Africa being the leading contributors.
Africa has a lot of potential for development. It is a continent where people are entertained and empowered. The history of Africa is not as dark as it is portrayed in the media. Women empowerment in Africa is also an important topic that needs to be discussed.
The entertainment industry in Africa has grown over the years, with many new movies and TV shows being made every year. In addition to this, there are many festivals celebrating African culture and heritage happening throughout the year on the continent. The African entertainment boom has been noticed by international major companies such as Netflix and Disney, who are in constant search of the next Big Hit to keep their money-making engines going. Nowadays, we can watch African movies and TV shows on these platforms compared to a decade ago when nobody cared about what was happening in Africa.
What's attracting the Western company to seek Africa in their creative meetings? It's all about this truth: Africa is still an untold story. There are countless actual historical stories in Africa that beat the Marvel Comic Universe storylines when it comes to originality.
African history is not all bad, but it has been portrayed as so by Western media outlets for centuries, until now. There are countless stories of empowerment among women in Africa that have been written about by various authors and historians alike who have studied the subject thoroughly - which we should take into account when discussing this topic.
The Danger? African artists and creative minds must take advantage of the fact that the world is awakened with a taste of Africa and is seeking anything that can relate to its beauty, mystery, and untold history. Africans must take the opportunity to tell their own story before it gets distorted by the western world and civilization interpretations. We must support our African filmmakers and actors, encouraging them to continue to make African stories with their authenticity.
