The COVID-19 pandemic caused a massive economic dislocation for most businesses – Africans were not spared either.
The lockdown that followed the pandemic hit several economic sectors. For the African media and entertainment scene, this was one hard pill to swallow.
But with BiB now onstream, African media creators may have found a gateway.
Mulder’s bold project gave her access to angel investment that is indeed commendable.
