A leading commercial bank in Nigeria, Guaranty Trust Bank, has concluded plans on launching an online television platform; this comes at the heels of launching the first digital magazine in the country, called Ndani.

The television platform will feature mostly music, arts, movies, business, technology and interesting interviews of Africans that have reached the zenith of their careers. The TV will be called Ndani.TV

The bank said “Ndani was borne out of our desire to project Africa to the world. It is our gift to mother Africa and our opportunity to make her proud. Through this platform, we would tell the world about Africa; her vast culture, numerous natural resources, beautiful landscape, exceptional talents and rich history.”

Young business proprietors will be profiled on a programme called the Young CEO. They will be drawn from all facets of entrepreneurship and questioned on their walk through the hassles of building and sustaining their businesses.

This programme comes at a time when Africa is emerging as a significant market in the global economy, as young entrepreneurs are overcoming infrastructural and other business environmental constraints to create viable businesses that employ and empower countless individuals.

Beat FM presenter, Tolu Oniru (Toolz) will also be anchoring a programme called The Juice, which will feature interview series with players in the Nigerian entertainment industry.

With its success with its digital magazine, which was designed to ensure complete reader immersion with its exceptionally brilliant designs, quality content and elegant yet conservative layout, we can expect that its digital TV platform would not fail to impress.

The pre-launch is slated for Thursday April 5, 2012.
