Ikeji, the 37-year-old CEO of LITV, announced that the online version of the Linda Ikeji TV network is set to launch on May 22. The channel will also debut on pay TV platform DStv later this year.

According to Ikeji, LITV aims to be the ‘Netflix of Africa,’ which is why the network will arrive online before its debut on pay TV.

“Despite the fact we are going to have a DSTV channel, having an online version of our platform was very important to me, mostly for our potential costumers who don’t live in Nigeria and have no access to cable in Nigeria,” she said.

“Bringing our amazing content to consumers all over the world, instead of being restricted only to Nigeria, was important to me. We are starting with our Nigerian content but plan to expand to other African countries. We are hoping to be to Africa what Netflix is to the world.”

Ikeji added that over the past 18 months she had spent “at least half-a-billion Naira of my own money,” or around US$1.4m, to create the channel. LITV will be offering subscribers original content such as reality shows, drama series, sitcoms, movies and talkshows.

Titles will include Oyinbo Wives of Lagos, Gidi Girls, Ajegunle with Love, Double Trouble, How Well Do You Know Me, Igwe Must Hear This, Report Card and The Paranormal House on Brown Road.
