The value of the media and entertainment industry in Africa was estimated to be approximately $34 billion in 2018. This number is projected to grow to $50 billion by 2022. Growth is driven by factors such as increasing access to technology, a growing middle class, and an increase in local content production. 

The media and entertainment industry in Nigeria is largely driven by the film and television sector, known as Nollywood. It is the largest film industry in Africa, and third largest in the world, and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 10.5% from 2018 to 2023. Moreover, Nigeria’s music industry is thriving and with many stars enjoying global success.
