The boundless creativity, inspiration, courage and innovation driving today’s world television contents being enjoyed in and out of the home as well as in the palm of peoples’ hands are qualities considered for some of the channels shortlisted for one of this year’s prestigious Eutelsat TV Awards.
According to the awards submission, AREWA24 is the first and only 24/7 free-to-air Hausa-language entertainment and lifestyle satellite television channel from Nigeria; created by and for the Hausa- speaking community. Produced out of Kano, Nigeria, AREWA24 is currently broadcasting 11 original shows across popular entertainment and lifestyle genres all in Hausa.
