AREWA24’s production studios already produce and broadcast the two most popular and highest rated Hausa language drama series in Northern Nigeria and West Africa, ‘Dadin Kowa’, in its 25th season and the channel’s runaway hit political thriller, ‘Kwana Casa’in’ (90 Days), which just concluded production on Season-7.
The statement added that the new original drama series are currently in development and the company will be debuting its first originally-produced premier feature film in Q4 2022.
“AREWA24 has been developing some of the finest Nigerian writers, producers, directors, editors and actors since the channel launched eight years ago,” said Jacob Arback, AREWA24’s CEO.
“We’re now positioned to be a major Pan African producer of scripted, authentic African content for Nigeria, Africa and for viewers in the West who are becoming more and more exposed to the unique and compelling stories being told in high-quality dramas and films from the continent.”
