Wabona Birthday Promotion

Wabona, Cape Town based video streaming service is celebrating its one year birthday. With that Wabona is free to all until the 12th of December. Anyone can sign up and watch as much content as they want for free.

To celebrate this momentous occasion Wabona received a birthday message from acclaimed African-American film and TV star, Malik Yoba. Malik was introduced to Wabona by Africa Angel Network Founder and Chairman, Pule Taukobong. Africa Angels Network (AAN) is an Angel Investment firm that invests in and supports African entrepreneurs and start-ups. AAN pays particular attention to start-ups in the TMT (Technology, Media and Telecoms) sector and the Design space. AAN is an investor in Wabona. After a few conversations Malik decided to work with Wabona in various areas of their value chain.

Wabona CEO, Simbarashe Mabasha was grateful and humbled by Malik’s message saying “building a business is one of the hardest things one can do. So it feels great to get recognition and support from someone like Malik Yoba. I was a bit awestruck when we started speaking to him as he is an actor I grew up watching. To have him on board with Wabona is a great blessing to all at Wabona”.

As part of the birthday promotion Wabona will be releasing more content on its website and via mobile application Cinemo, which is available on Mxit and Google Play.
