Celebrating Africa Month with Triller Africa

As part of its activities to mark Africa Month, TrillerTV recently welcomed homegrown talent to the channel’s rapidly expanding line-up. Fans can catch Khaligraph Jones, Kenya’s multi-award-winning hip-hop talent, who’s headlining Africa’s first TrillerTV series. His show ‘Omollo Customs’ airs every Friday at 8pm East Africa time. TrillerTV also is also proud to feature South African Amapiano star, Focalistic. ‘Running in the streets with Foca’ promises to take viewers behind the velvet rope to explore the Amapiano music scene both inside the studio and on the road. His show airs every Tuesday at 8.30pm Central Africa Time.

“Triller revels and celebrates diversity and creativity,” says Joel Houenou, Triller’s Africa Strategic Partnership Director. “There’s so much talent in Africa and it’s really a privilege to be able to provide a platform for our homegrown talent to be seen by a global audience.”

So show the world who you are and what you love about Africa in Triller’s latest challenge, #ILoveAfricaBecause. Say it loud and say it proud!
