When did you start the Television?
The YouTube started around 2019
Where are you located and why?
We are located at Ijebu ososa. We are selective enough to choose our base at a place where theatre in Nigeria was professionally birthed. Chief Hulbert Ogunde, a pioneer of the National troupe of Nigeria hailed from Ososa-Ijebu and built the popular Ogunde Museum in the town as well. We have chosen this environment in order to align ourselves with the originality that makes our brand unique.

Kaatachi is a comical series which is inspired by a true story. It is a story of a young Ghanaian returnee who believes he is exposed, learned, and make everyone believes he knows it all. He thought he understand how to live life flamboyantly.
He had an issue with his family concerning his marital life which later ended up to be his doom and his level of thinking was measured by those he looked down on. We are working on additional 13 episodes on Kaatachi presently. We casted 12 actors on it and it is going to be aired on Kiraa TV and DSTV soonest.
