After a nail-biting inaugural season, The Mic: Africa -- the first music competition and docu-series TV format born in Africa was filmed in 6 countries and the winners included Nigerian MC Fecko, Rwandan graffiti artist, Muntu621, and filmmaker ChiChi Nwoko of Nigeria. The show, one for the culture, created a digital experience that was brought to screens of all sizes and resulted in 2 Telly awards (One Gold, One Silver) and thousands of new viewers from around the world.

The Mic franchise is opening up around the globe, starting with an expansion of Season 2 of The Mic: Africa to 10 countries -- Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mauritius, Morocco, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania.
