With about seventy motion pictures added to his repertoire, veteran Nollywood Ghallywood on-screen character Gregory Artus Frank has set out on another dare to make African movies more open to watchers and fans in his country, Liberia with the beginning of MonroTV.
The President and CEO of MonroTV, Artus said, “It’s been a longing desire of mine to showcase African acting to not just my homeland but throughout the continent. When I visited Australia, my partner and I were having discussion and we were brainstorming ideas on how to make it easier for Liberians in the Diaspora to have access to Liberian content. So, we decided to create a channel and that’s why we named it MonrovTV. This name is derived from Monrovia.”
Artus said the objective for MonroTV is to work as a full working TV station, with a lineup that incorporates soap operas, talk shows, game shows, movies and much more. Commenting on the latest development, Artus explained that, “Viewers can access MonroTV 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
MonroTV was set up on January 2016 with the goal to share African culture over the world, particularly for Liberians in the Diaspora. It is an online station for watchers to see Liberian and African motion pictures at a marked down cost.
