Based in Toronto, Canada, Afroglobal Television caters to the fast-growing population of people of African descent, who include viewers originally from Africa, the Caribbean and from other parts of the world. “Afroglobal Television reflects the experiences and aspirations of all people of African descent through local and international success stories, as well as other programs that are good for the whole family,” says Mr. Mawa.
“Viewers enjoy great music, films, documentaries, biographies, current affairs, faith, sports and others,” says Dr. Jefferson Sackey, Vice President of Programming, who has worked with global channels including America’s CNN, the German international broadcaster DWTV, and Multimedia Group in Ghana. Also Known as AFRO-TV, the network tells Afro-Canadian, Afro-Caribbean, Afro-American, Afro-Brazilian, many others and indeed “Afroglobal” narratives from a transformational perspective, to advance a common destiny for people of African descent.
“With original programming like the Visionaries, which is a biography series; The Golden Button fashion series; the Open Mic music show; the Anatomic health, fitness and wellness series; Poetically Speaking; Sister Talk; Story Time With Nana; The Minister; and others, every audience has a great experience,” says Patricia Bebia Mawa. “We also have movies, music and world class drama series like Office Palava, XOXO and Jamestown Fisherman, which appeal to discerning viewers,” she says.
“It is an honour to support this landmark project and to sit on its Advisory Board,” says Dr. Julius Garvey of New York, USA and son of legendary civil rights leader Marcus Garvey. Afroglobal TV is a part of Silvertrust Media, which has deployed its staff, equipment, programming resources, marketing and other support systems via associated brands like Planet Africa Group, Destiny, Diversity, Discover and the Transformation Institute For Leadership & Innovation for the success of this initiative.
Other members of the Afroglobal Television Advisory Board include Hon. Dr. Jean Augustine, Hollywood actress Tonya Williams as well as Caroline Alabi, Patricia Scarlett, Johnson Babalola, Rosemary Sadlier and Pius Ilogu. “We are grateful to MoneyGram International, Ethiopian Airlines, Shed Fitness & Training, WorldRemit and many others who committed to advertising on the channel even before we could launch the channel,” says Mr. Mawa.

Celebrating 10 Years Of Planet Africa Magazine

There’s an African proverb that says, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”  These simple words overflow with wisdom and truth. The release of this edition marks the 10th Anniversary of Planet Africa Magazine! The team and I are proud of this milestone, and we couldn’t have done it without you – our readers, our dear friends. It has truly been an awesome journey since our inaugural issue, which was published back in October 2005!

I am delighted by the opportunity the Editorial Board has accorded to my wife and associate Patricia Bebia Mawa, who has been the Editorial Director of this publication from the beginning. In addition to running a cutting-edge publishing, broadcast, marketing and event management organization, we are now set to launch a 24-hour television channel, having recently acquired Afroglobal Television, where I had been a shareholder as well. We are also delighted to share profiles of recipients of the 2015 Planet Africa Awards.

It is an honour to channel our collective pride in the accomplishments of our distinguished recipients. Categories include Professional Excellence, Enterprise, Leadership, Entertainment, Nelson Mandela Humanitarian Award, Volunteer, Media, Renaissance, Heritage, Development, Science & Technology, Marcus Garvey Memorial Award, Rising Star, Academics, Visionary and Lifetime Achievements.  Exemplary role models, we honour them for making a profound difference in the lives of our people.

We present talented Fashion Designer Adebayo Jones’ spectacular designs as showcased at the 2015 African Fashion Week in Toronto. In our spotlight is ‘Empire’ star Taraji P. Henson. We share the empowering story of US President Barack Obama’s journey to Kenya, his Fatherland. We are also pleased to feature Cross River State Governor Professor Ben Ayade’s Inauguration. We examine the work of Cuso International, along with the strides that the development organization is making to impact lives in Calabar, Nigeria and other places of the world. We present the courtship and marriage of Osho and Alan Edison, plus beauty, fitness, food, entrepreneurship, books, inspirational stories and much more.

The universal law of going far together pertains to all facets of life. These include work, school, home and others. We need to be united in mind and purpose more than ever before. Thanks to everyone who has included our magazine in their lives, especially those who have read each issue cover to cover. We sincerely appreciate our advertisers, subscribers, photographers, writers and other contributors.
