Smart Monkey TV


Based in London, in the U.K., Smart Monkey TV is a hybrid channel with video clip interviews, e-letters and music content that focuses on Africa. It also covers the creators and innovators in Africa at the crossroads of culture and technology. The website has music audio and video uploads and also focuses on music business in Africa.

The idea of launching Smart Monkey was born out of two main ideas. Firstly, they believe that video will become an extremely powerful and widely used medium in Africa, particularly on mobile phones.

Secondly, because online content and services are increasingly a reality for the continent, it opens up the potential for using technology both as powerful means of cultural expression and to help tackle social problems like health, education and traffic in cities. The site covers the following areas: emerging cultures, emerging business, emerging media, emerging history and development.
