KUNTA AFRICA, which you may commonly have seen on your TV as “KUNTA PRODUCTIONS”, with a tagline “masokulutimbe” and a massive black baboon at the end of your favorite TV shows, is a Ugandan creative production house. It is behind some of the most popular TV series, and national talent competitions. Within a span of less than 10 years, they have produced many binge worthy TV shows like the crazy ‘ERIC’S GAME’ dating show and NORTHERN CONNECT both on NTVU, ENSITAANO, a TV game trivia show on Bukedde TV, NBS TV’s ‘GIRL TALK’ – a chit chat dialogue of beautiful campus girls, SMART KIDS and other shows like SUPERWORMAN, the UGANDA NATIONAL SPELLING BEE, “MTN’s Gaggawala” with 100million to give away, VUVUZELA NATIONAL SPORTS CHALLENGE, a sports quiz show where sports fans do push-ups while answering sports questions… and the list goes on.
They have TV shows running across the East African Region in Kenya, Rwanda and Tanzania on major TV stations like Citizen TV Kenya, TV10 Rwanda etc. Ugandans can now be very proud to know that the biggest TV production house in East Africa right now, is Ugandan, and is run by its founder a one Lubwama Eric Michael.
With editing suites located in Kyanja and large production warehouse in Nakawa, KUNTA PRODUCTIONS is a full service production company, with start to finish, High Definition video production. They have created thousands of motion pictures for not only TV stations, but for many corporate companies, non-profit organizations and advertisers. This is an achievement for the fast growing media, TV and film industry in Uganda.
What is unique about KUNTA PRODUCTIONS’ work is that they are clearly very creative, and professional. Their level of quality has only been imported in Uganda just a few years back. With such creative Ugandan minds and works, this gives a lot of hope that the East African film industry is growing very fast in comparison to other African regions. The Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) encouraged Ugandan TV stations to air at least 70% of locally made content. Inspiring the growth of companies such as KUNTA PRODUCTIONS working hand in hand with our ever growing number of TV stations, we are more certain about the quality of TV content on our local TV stations. This has also assured that videography is a more valid career option for young Ugandans. To check out some of their work, go to www.kuntaproductions.com
