SEAfrica was launched on 2014 in South Africa and was introduced as part of the Joburg Arts Alive International Festival and this event was designed to take place annually in September. Speakers such as Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Donavan Goliath, and David Kau among many have attended these events where they have seen the value of not letting the entertainment industry die and have seen the need to equip others in the same industry with the necessary information to make it.
“We launched the concept in 2014 and it draws its support from exhibitions, workshops and entertainment as well. When we conceptualised this, we realised that every talent is a business. So we needed to put out education to the stakeholders to reposition the business and introspect holistically” said Sibeko the founder.
This year’s launch some of the attendees were filmmakers among them Tumi Sejoe and Kgomotso Kemoneilwe, radio personalities in Dollar Mac and Mr. O, Gao Lemmenyane, Rasina Rasina, T.H.A.B.O and representatives from Brand Botswana and MYSC.
