wesé TV – continental Africa’s newest pay TV network – is now the exclusive African broadcaster of REVOLT TV, the American multi-platform TV Network owned by international music and business mogul, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs. Kwesé is the first international distribution partner for REVOLT.
REVOLT was introduced to the African market earlier this week when Kwesé launched its full entertainment and sports bouquet in Ghana, Zambia and Rwanda. The landmark agreement brings the latest breaking music news, artist interviews, exclusive performances and original programming to African audiences, exclusively on Kwesé TV channel 605.
“Having REVOLT as part of our premium entertainment offering is a significant feat, we’re excited to be the broadcaster bringing this channel to Africa,” explained president and group chief executive officer of Econet Media, Joseph Hundah. “We are gearing up to be the home of world-class and exclusive entertainment programming for the continent. Kwesé is dynamic, innovative and fresh and our channel mix reflects this.”
REVOLT is a natural fit for Kwesé which also recently announced that it had entered an agreement to bring VICELAND to African audiences. REVOLT is available to the continent through Kwesé’s multi-platform offering including linear TV, mobile app, web and streaming services, delivering premium entertainment to viewers anywhere, anytime, on any screen.
“When I introduced REVOLT, I wanted to build a platform that would inspire creators around the world and open doors for artists on a global scale,” stated REVOLT chairman Sean Combs. “To launch in Africa is a huge honor for me and this deal illustrates the true impact REVOLT has on the culture here at home and abroad.”
Viewers can enjoy exclusive shows such as The Breakfast Club, a daily topical radio-style TV programme reporting on the world’s biggest music stories and news, REVOLT Sessions which showcases intimate musical performances from the world’s most loved artists and new undiscovered talent, as well as the REVOLT Music Conference which features an unprecedented line-up of keynote speakers, panelists, and performers who converge in Miami to help viewers understand and navigate the music business. This month, REVOLT’s programming schedule will also include the 5th annual Global Spin Awards, recognising music’s top DJs from around the world, along with the network’s #BlackExcellence programming in celebration of Black History Month.
“Our new agreement with Kwesé marks the next frontier outside of our distribution in the United States and the Caribbean,” said REVOLT executive vice president and head of Content Distribution, James Brown. “This deal reinforces how our core programming strategy, which is centered around music, resonates around the world. We are thrilled to be working with a powerhouse such as Kwesé TV to bring the No. 1 name in music to the continent of Africa.”
The channel joins Kwesé’s impressive entertainment line-up which includes a broad mix of exclusive third part channels, television favorites and original programming.
