MultiChoice Africa’s legacy is to showcase Africa’s diversity and rich culture through the continent’s deep-rooted storytelling history. The African entertainment industry is at the core of who we are and what we do. MultiChoice Africa recognises the critical role we can play in building and strengthening the creative industries across Africa – our 17 local M-Net channels are available in a variety of regional languages, telling original African stories. As a business born and bred in Africa, MultiChoice has a long-term commitment to making a socio-economic difference, playing a key role – alongside government, various stakeholders, businesses and civil society – in growing Africa’s creative industries into vibrant, economic hubs. The MultiChoice Talent Factory (MTF) is a shared-value initiative that provides a platform for the creative industries to develop their talent and engage with one another through their shared passions. This initiative has a multi-tiered approach, namely; the MTF Portal, the MTF Academies and MTF Industry Masterclasses.
