NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, September 16, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Africa’s top talent competition – five-time Telly Award-winning The Mic: Africa – launches Season 3 on Sunday September 18th.

Ghana-born TBTM Studios Founder & CEO, Derrick N. Ashong, “DNA,” and his team have built a Digital Media platform, TBTM, that powered the launch of the interactive TV format born in Africa for export around the world. The music competition and docu-series connects African music, arts and culture with a new generation of fans worldwide.

The Mic: Africa harnesses the power of artistry and technology to uplift a new generation of creative voices at tbtm.app,” said Ashong. “We are proud that MTN, the pan-African mobile operator is partnering us. Their question, ‘What are we doing today, Africa?’ aligns with our own call to action to African youth.”

“Africa’s youth are at the core of our progress as a continent. MTN’s brand refresh centres on them as they hold the future in their hands. Our partnership with The Mic: Africa highlights how the youth are using the power of their voice to impact positive change from community to country and ultimately across the continent,” said Bernice Samuels, MTN Group Executive for Marketing.

The Mic: Africa embarks on its third season, highlighting creatives across 10 African countries. Tune in this Sunday, September 18th at 4:00pm GMT at tbtm.app, and at 4:30pm GMT on Pulse on Premium Free TV, and in the Premium Free channel in MTN’s ayoba video platform (which will also air exclusive short-form content from The Mic: Africa).

“We are also happy to be broadcasting to 20+ countries across the continent on Pulse at Premium Free TV,” said Ashong.

This year, for the first time 8 of 10 local filmmakers in competing countries is a woman, highlighting the incredible depth of talent among African women in the Creative Industries.

AMP Global Technologies, the parent company of TBTM Studios, received investment from MaC Venture Capital earlier this year to grow the TBTM blockchain-based video platform that rewards fans for engaging with and promoting new content.

Tune in Sundays to The Mic: Africa Season 3 at 4pm GMT at tbtm.app and 4:30pm GMT on Pulse on Premium Free TV & the Premium Free Channel in the ayoba app.
