The welcome address was delivered by Mrs Gbemi Shasore of Access to Knowledge. Box Tv Founder Temilola Akinmunda, aka ‘Taymi’ said of the launch: ”I am excited that Box TV has finally launched, it has been something I have been working on for a while now and to see that it is here is and well received is fantastic.
Box Tv is here to tell the Nigerian story in a different way but more importantly to empower young creatives and give them a platform to share their talent and collaborate with like minded individuals.
I also want to be an example to younger people that impossible is nothing. Box TV received no sponsorship when we started, but we spear headed through this and kept going, so I believe we are the magic and anything is possible if one is relentless.
We are very excited about the show’s exciting content, varied and rare content that tells what we like to call ‘the other Nigerian story.’ We are big on collaborations at BoxTv and I have created another drama series; First Time Mom that will be co-produced with Wetv productions.”
