Peter Ayeni, a visionary social innovator and doer, is proud to announce the launch of PartyJollof Africa, a groundbreaking platform revolutionizing the way African cinema and television are discovered, celebrated, and shared globally.

As a Fellow of the DO School and a Mandela Washington Fellow, Ayeni brings a wealth of experience and a deep-rooted passion for storytelling to his latest venture.

Addressing a Critical Gap in the Market

PartyJollof Africa arises from a pressing need within the rapidly expanding landscape of African entertainment. Despite the wealth of talent and diversity in African storytelling, audiences across the continent and the global diaspora face significant challenges in discovering, accessing, and evaluating the vast array of content available.

The absence of a centralized, user-friendly platform that aggregates ratings, reviews, and detailed information about African movies and TV shows impedes the visibility of African creatives and limits audience engagement.

Mainstream platforms often overlook or inadequately represent African content, leading to a lack of awareness and appreciation for the depth and breadth of African storytelling.

Empowering African Creatives

PartyJollof Africa aims to bridge this gap by providing a dedicated platform that not only showcases African content but also supports the creators behind these stories. By offering comprehensive reviews, ratings, and accessibility features, PartyJollof Africa elevates the global profile of African cinema and television, empowering creators to gain exposure and feedback while connecting with audiences who crave authentic, compelling content.

Unique Features and Functionality

At the heart of PartyJollof Africa’s ratings are two innovative systems:

Audience Flavor Score: Reflecting the collective taste of the audience, this score provides direct insight into the reception of a movie or TV show, allowing viewers to discover content based on popular consensus.

SpicyMeter: PartyJollof Africa’s tailored review aggregation system meticulously analyzes critiques from approved critics to generate scores that accurately reflect the critical consensus on African cinema and television, categorizing content as ‘Spicy’ for positively received works and ‘Mild’ for those with less favorable reviews.
