Founder of Kiraa Television, Currie Franklin Oluwasegun has explained that he established the wave-making television outfit three years ago because of his passion to promote contents that puts the Nigerian culture on the map.
He recalled that he delved into the business a few years back after he attended Lagbaja’s show in Lagos and jokingly his friends were hailing him in Yoruba language ( e Kira fun baba ) from where he derived the name of the television channel.
“This is because my dad started a movie cinema back in the early 70s in Abeokuta, that’s where the passion came from,” he said.

According to him: “We appreciate the historical heritage of Africa at large and Nigeria in particular. Thus, we create and promote mind blowing and sensational contents from an exciting viewpoint.
Continuing, the Ijebu-Ososa, Ogun State born businessman said: “We believe theatre started from Ososa, and I feel starting Kiraa TV from the existing protocol of where it started from is a good thing too, that’s the reason we choose Ososa as our favourite location to operate. So far, we have produced series of movies. “We are working on a project at the moment that will promote our art and culture. People should just wait for It, I promise you it’s going to be nice. My dream is to see Kiraa TV one of the biggest TV platforms that showcase great movies, indigenous art and cultures”.
