Summary of your idea
We are aimed to promoting local digital content streamlining this framework to Nigerian cultural display in music, stories, artworks and poems in various indigenous (Nigerian) dialects which may be in form of local writings, audios and videos. Festivals, stories, poems of both present and history will want to be passed across by people to the world. This framework will have its output service as a web-based and mobile application platform. It will allow an open-source dissemination of information on indigenous cultural practices and displays as mentioned above. The website and application can be viewed in English and other major languages of the world, WHILE content will be in original dialect forms with a goal of exporting our values to the understanding of the outside world. The start-up intends to generate income via adverts, listings by traditional centers e.g. museums, local tourist destinations etc. and premium service to people who intend to save such media to their devices (STREAMING/VIEWING OF MEDIA WILL BE FREE). The premium service will be made microscopically affordable to encourage people to enjoy privileges of the media offline.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
People always look for ways to entertain themselves, and the internet is fast becoming a tool for entertainment. The ability to electronically access indigenous cultural media creates a huge potential. Size of the market is the approximately 150 million Nigerian people plus an estimated 800 million non-Nigerians who will want to be entertained and informed of the Nigerian cultures. Our potential market expansion will dive into West African nations before its sinks finally in all African countries. The target market for this innovative frame is Nigerians at home and in diasporas, international tourists and lovers of entertainment. This framework disperses the diverse cultural display to the world in their local dialect and in preferred language of understanding of international recipient. Our potential customers are the Nigerian people, lover of traditions, students of traditional history, tourist, and researchers. There is no present system that offers electronic coverage of Nigerias vast multi-cultural tradition. This has created a huge potential for us to provide Nigerians and the world a platform to fully enjoy the experience of Nigerias rich cultural tradition.
