It’s been less than one year that Ogelle commenced operation as Africa’s first user generated content platform with 100 percent focus on African content, but like rightfully predicted by tech Wiz’s and pundits, it has risen sporadically to the highest of heights and now ranked among the fastest downloaded app and also one of the most visited platform in the continent for fun and excitement.
Ogelle’s user friendly mechanism which makes it easy for anyone to navigate, by registering and uploading their video contents with a valid email address and you can also visit just to stream other exciting series, movies and ‘how to’ videos without any stress.
Ogelle’s inclusivity orientation has triggered its emergence as a continental favourite, because it’s now serving as a unifier of African contents , welcoming all African contents regardless of language of the production , or the socio-cultural backgrounds and theme of the content in as much as its not morally offensive.
Ogelle is taking its place in today’s Africa as a One stop shop for everything African when it comes to culture and entertainment and this is the pivotal reason why its gaining acceptance and recognition in all the 5 regions of the continent.
Recently Eric Omondi one of the biggest entertainers in East Africa whose country of origin is Kenya decided to pitch his tent exclusively with Ogelle regardless of the fact that he has over 381,000 subscribers on YouTube.
Omondi, who prides himself as “President of Comedy Africa”, has a combined online following of over 10 million and more than 60 million views. On Instagram alone, he has 2.6 million followers but has recognised the difference and impact of joining Ogelle a pan African platform for African content only will have on his career moving forward.
“I’m excited to be part of the Ogelle journey, most especially because Ogelle is African,” the entertainment guru said. With this endorsement, Omondi, who has created countless exciting and compelling comedy series out of Kenya and other East African countries, has become Ogelle’s latest ambassador and content creator.
Both Eric Omondi and the Ogelle.com management say they are excited to work together. Osita Oparaugo, CEO of Reddot Television Network, the parent company of Ogelle, said the company was equally excited to have the entertainer on the Ogelle journey mainly for two reasons.
“First, he has created deep-rooted African content that will help to change the African narrative, and secondly, because we know he will help galvanise the right support for other Kenyan and East African content creators,” Oparaugo said.
With over 10,000 videos from 7,809 African content creators, millions of views and a combined app downloads of over 40,000, the management of Ogelle say they are proud that truly, Ogelle is African.
Eric Omondi is now joining the likes of Clarisse Karasira, an amazing singer from Rwanda who sings in Kinyarwanda and who is also a great advocate for youth development, as an Ogelle.com ambassador and content creators.
In September last year, Ogelle entered into a content creation and sharing agreement with Bamenya Series Group, one of the most-watched online comedy series from East Africa with 17.3 million views in less than one year.
To further engage with notable content creators across Africa , Reddot Television Network Limited has hired Windiel Resources Limited represented by their CEO Prince Daniel Chukwuocha.
Designed to promote and facilitate the development of African creative industry, Ogelle integrates User Generated Content (UGC) and exclusive original production subscription video on demand (SVOD) delivered as a free and subscription-based service.
