2022 was a year of triumph and success for TANTV Studios. We are proud to have achieved so much in such a short amount of time. It was a year of growth and development for us, both in terms of content and reach. We founded our platform with the mission of challenging and reframing the narrative of stories of African and multicultural black diaspora communities by providing an inclusive platform to tell and share their stories, while also providing them with access to resources, opportunities and support to grow our community.
We got ourselves a co-founder and COO. Abolaj Omitogun, collaborated with major local diaspora businesses and covered historic events, doubled our original content publishing effort on TANTVstudios.com and achieved a total reach of 145k users across our digital assets.
