Africa Magic?GO is a premier ad free online service streaming offering the highest quality of original content from the continent. First launched in the UK back in April by MultiChoice, the world?s largest television platform for original?African?Television and Film content,?AMGO features new documentaries, movies, TV series and entertainment shows from?Africa.
Deemed the “Hulu” of?Africa, subscribers can gain access to hundreds of films for just $8 a month. Not only can AMGO be accessed from your PC, it can now be accessed on Ipads via the new AMGO app available in the App Store now. Unlike Hulu, which aims to provide American film and television content in America, as well as other countries, The?Africa?Magic?GO Service is currently only available to members outside the African?continent. According to the AMGO website: “AMGO prides itself in delivering a high quality service to its subscribers and with the low-rate and low bandwidth Internet infrastructures available on the continent, unbroken streaming of long-form content would virtually be impossible in Africa.?
AMGO aims to provide an alternative for?Africans?living abroad and?African?film lovers by offering new content that can be seen way before the films are released on DVD; offers a huge selection of Nollywood productions, the world?s largest film industry, as well as productions from various parts of the continent; and has recently upped the anty by signing on the beautiful Ghanaian actress Juliet Ibrahim as their newest spokesperson.
Ibrahim is more than just an actress. She joined the entertainment scene as a runway and editorial model years ago. Since then she has not only grown into one of the most popular faces in Nollywood, she has also launched a successful business that includes a beauty salon ?Envoque Beauty Parlour?, a boutique ?House Of Glamour? a modeling agency? Dolfin?s Agency and a production house ?Jewels Productions?. Along with managing a flourishing film career and multiple business ventures, in 2011 Ibrahim founded the Juliet Ibrahim Foundation. JIF is aimed at helping Ghanaians and other West African citizens know their medical status and prevent kidney cancer from getting to the incurable stage.?JIF is poised to help save lives and put smiles on the faces of the less fortunate living with kidney cancer but can?t afford to pay their bills.
In a recent interview with Ibrahim, she expressed enthusiasm for the project. ?I’m excited to be the new face of AMGO. I look forward to the fans being able to reach my exclusive movies and TV series as soon as they are released. AMGO will continue to add new content as time goes on. We also have plans to bring content to other mobile devices and Smart TVs in the future,? she explained. She added that her top pick for newcomers to check out is Tinsel, the popular Nigerian soap opera. “Blurred Line is another great pick,” she says.?
