iROKOtv Selling Top Nollywood DVDs on Jumia

iROKOtv this week announced that it is moving into Nigeria’s DVD market, launching its new arm of the business with 17 Nollywood top titles in HD-quality. Celebrated around the world for bringing Nollywood onto the internet via www.irokotv.com, the move comes as the company seeks to fill the gap in the current market for legally produced, well packaged and top quality DVDs for those who do not have access to the Internet or who prefer to watch their favourite movies on disc. Continue...
The 17 titles, include Baby Oku in America’,Mrs. Somebody’, ‘Somewhere in Africa’, ‘Single and Married’ and ‘Oga On Top’ and are currently being sold on Nigeria’s number one e-commerce platform, Jumia. Each unit costs N495 [excluding postage costs] and can be shipped to anywhere in Nigeria.


Adibeli Nduka-Agwu, Head of Business for iROKOtv says: “With the launch of our DVD business in Nigeria, we feel that we’re ‘coming home’ and providing awesome Nollywood movies, beautifully boxed and published in HD, to the world’s biggest Nollywood fanbase; Nigeria. Not all Nigerians have access to broadband internet connectivity, but we didn’t want our Nigerian Nollywood fans to miss out on getting access to the top movies, hence we’ve moved into DVDs as well as our website www.irokotv.com.


“Now, with the launch of iROKOtv DVD, we are making the likes of Nollywood superstars Uche Jombo, Mercy Johnson, Majid Michel,  Mr Ibu and Ramsey Nouah available online and offline 24 hours a day, however people want to access their favourite movies”.


iROKOtv will also be stocking its DVD in stores across Lagos including Ikeja, Anthony Village, Festac and the Island.

iROKOtv only publishes movies that have been legally licensed so that the movie pirates are not profiting from copyright theft.

The full list of iROKOtv titles available from the  Jumia DVD store include:

  • Lovelorn
  • Midnight Whispers
  • Damage
  • Broken Silence
  • I’ll Take My Chances
  • The Search
  • Mrs. Somebody
  • Holding Hope
  • The Place
  • Somewhere In Africa
  • Oga on Top
  • Osufia’s Wedding
  • Single & Married

ok, once and for all, Irokotv should stop taking credit for bringing nollywood to the internet (or at least we should stop giving them credit for it). People had been doing that way before irokotv. for example, does irokotv own onlinenigeria?

dobox.tv is better with better quality of movies. Out with Iroko

Picconn said...

Great move by Iroko. This is very welcoming. Now some peeps can actually buy legally sold DVDs without being bothered about huge data consumption via watching online. We love Iroko

The point is I guess they were the first to do it legally and pay the producers for their work...other people were pirating/doing it illegally
