ASOC backs Okuhle Media in recap deal

Africa Special Opportunities Capital has completed its deal to recapitalize Okuhle Media. The transaction was prompted earlier by a number of events destabilizing to South Africa’s film and TV industry earlier in the year. The financial terms of the deal were not reported.

Okuhle Media is one of South Africa’s top producers of media content for both the domestic and international markets. The firm produces a daily-live show, Hectic Nine-9 which is now in its 12th season and has an audience of over 2,5 million viewers every week. Other South African shows include lifestyle shows such as Sarah Graham Food Safari and Neill Anthony Private Chef which have also been distributed to Europe, the Middle East, North America and Australia.
