Shaka Ilembe Is Ready To Hit Global Screens!

News Americas, Johannesburg, South Africa, Fri. June 02, 2023: The Johannesburg Stock Exchange listed MultiChoice Group is about to debut it’s biggest ever prime-time drama series, Shaka Ilembe, an epic 12-part tale that follows the origins story of the legendary African monarch and military strategist, King Shaka. Six years in the making, the highly anticipated series boasts the talents of some of South Africa’s biggest stars, including Coming 2 America lead actress Nomzamo Mbatha.

With the epic series launching across sub-Saharan Africa on MultiChoice’s video entertainment service DStv this June, Shaka Ilembe is already attracting significant interest outside of the continent. MultiChoice Studios, the busy sales and distribution arm of the sub-Saharan business, is hard at work introducing the title to international buyers at film markets from Cannes to Los Angeles, building on a growing MultiChoice slate of original production exports including the Emmy nominated Reyka and the Deon Meyer penned Trackers.

For Nomsa Philiso, CEO of MultiChoice General Entertainment, Shaka Ilembe offers audiences worldwide the opportunity to immerse into a rich dynastic African story, set in the 1700’s.

“We are confident that this series will travel. It speaks, not only the heritage of the Zulu Nation, but to the fascination that the world has always had with King Shaka. It speaks to Africans owning the stories that their ancestors lived. And it celebrates that, long before colonialism, beyond the pages of history, there was a majestic ancient era of African Kings and Queens, warriors, healers, and leaders who lived, loved, ruled, battled, and above all, entrenched a legacy and culture that endures even today. Further, the series was filmed in isiZulu so it carries a distinct language identity, but it will be sub-titled in multiple languages so audiences from across the globe can enjoy it.”

Central to the Shaka Ilembe story is actress Nomzamo Mbatha, who balances her Executive Producer responsibilities with fulfilling a life-long ambition to play King Shaka’s beloved mother, Queen Nandi.

Speaking to her dual roles on Shaka Ilembe, Mbatha says, “This series is rich in depth, and was shot in 4K on a tremendous scale that fuels the narrative. From the fierce battlefield choreography and the meticulous accuracy of the wardrobe to the resonance of the script, it’s remarkable. And while this is a fictional story, it’s inspired by real events, people, and places. Already, ahead of our domestic launch audiences at home are very supportive because, they know like I do, that TV series like Shaka Ilembe transcends entertainment, and delivers representation, diversity, and progress.”

Mbatha leads off a top-flight ensemble cast featuring some of the country’s most charismatic leading men – Lemogang Tsipa, Senzo Radebe, Wiseman Mncube, Thembinkosi Mthembu and Mondli Makhoba alongside powerful character actresses Khabonina Qubeka, Sthandiwe Kgoroge, Dawn Thandeka King and rising star Hope Mbhele. Meanwhile, playing the boy destined to be King, is gifted young newcomer Ntando Zondi whose prodigious talent was unearthed during the filming of the series.

Filmed in South Africa, SHAKA ILEMBE features much of the country’s magnificent wildlife and scenery, including the mountains, savanna, and coastline of the lushly beautiful province of KwaZulu Natal, home to the majority of South Africa’s Zulu people. Key filming locations here included the towns of Eshowe, Nkandla Forest, Port Edward, Drakensburg, Mooi River and Zulu Falls.

Meanwhile other parts of the series were shot on a purpose-built backlot near the UNESCO World Heritage Site “The Cradle of Humankind” where Emmy and Academy nominated showrunners Bomb Productions hosted the King of the Zulu Nation, His Excellency Misuzulu kaZwelithini, during a special visit to the set for the Royal to see first-hand the level of detail and care that was employed to ensure that the authenticity of the set.

For Mauro Black, MultiChoice Studios Content, Sales, and Distributions Director, it is this credibility of intention and execution that makes SHAKA ILEMBE a powerful cultural export.

“International buyers are discerning about what they will bring their local audiences from the global TV marketplace. So, from inception, SHAKA ILEMBE was crafted to weld an immense depth of oral, written and illustrated Zulu history into the framework of a highly watchable prime-time drama. The result is a deeply meaningful but profoundly enjoyable title that should win fans in markets as diverse as Africa, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, and the Americas.”

With over 8000 people contributing their skills to create Shaka Ilembe, the series has already won the support of five of South Africa’s biggest brands (Telkom, LottoStar, Grant’s Whisky, Toyota SA and Santam) who all signed on as commercial partners within days of seeing an extended preview of the series.  In addition, it’s Academy Award and BAFTA nominated Creative Director Angus Gibson and Sundance winning Executive Producer Desiree Markgraaff have drawn from the best of South Africa’s talent, including acclaimed Zulu musician Mbuso Khoza whose skill and vision drives the series soundtrack.

The Rise Of Lawsuits Targeting Website ADA Violations: Why Caribbean And Latin American Business Websites Should Be ADA Compliant

News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Tues. May, 30, 2023: The proliferation of lawsuits targeting website owners for ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) violations is on the rise globally. Caribbean and Latin American businesses must pay attention to this growing trend and prioritize making their websites ADA compliant. In this article, we explore the reasons why Caribbean and Latin American business websites should ensure accessibility for individuals with disabilities, addressing the legal, ethical, and business implications involved.

Legal Obligations and Compliance

The ADA mandates equal access and prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities, both in physical spaces and in the digital realm. While specific laws may vary across the Caribbean and Latin American region, businesses are increasingly being held accountable for providing accessible websites. By ensuring ADA compliance, businesses can mitigate the risk of legal consequences and potential lawsuits.

Ethical Responsibility and Inclusivity

Creating an ADA-compliant website goes beyond legal compliance—it reflects a commitment to inclusivity and equal access for all. By accommodating individuals with disabilities, businesses demonstrate their dedication to diversity, respect, and social responsibility. An accessible website fosters an inclusive environment, ensuring that individuals with visual, hearing, or cognitive impairments can navigate and engage with the online content effectively.

Expanding Customer Base and Market Reach

Making a website ADA compliant can significantly expand a business’s customer base and market reach. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), over one billion people worldwide live with some form of disability. By optimizing websites for accessibility, Caribbean and Latin American businesses can tap into this large, underserved demographic, potentially attracting new customers, enhancing brand reputation, and driving business growth.

Enhanced User Experience and Engagement

An ADA-compliant website offers improved user experience and engagement for all visitors. Accessibility features, such as alternative text for images, proper color contrast, and clear navigation, benefit not only individuals with disabilities but also those using mobile devices or experiencing poor internet connections. By providing a seamless browsing experience, businesses can boost user satisfaction, increase engagement, and encourage repeat visits.

Competitive Advantage and Brand Differentiation

In today’s competitive marketplace, setting your business apart from competitors is vital. An ADA-compliant website can give Caribbean and Latin American businesses a significant competitive advantage. By prioritizing accessibility, businesses demonstrate a commitment to inclusivity and customer-centric values, establishing themselves as leaders in their industry and gaining a positive reputation among customers, stakeholders, and the community at large.

The rise of lawsuits targeting ADA violations on business websites underscores the importance of Caribbean and Latin American businesses ensuring ADA compliance. Beyond legal obligations, creating an accessible website reflects ethical responsibility, expands the customer base, enhances user experience, and provides a competitive edge. By prioritizing ADA compliance, Caribbean and Latin American businesses can promote inclusivity, meet the needs of diverse audiences, and establish themselves as leaders in their respective industries, all while contributing to a more inclusive and accessible digital landscape.

Understanding the Audience: Key for Caribbean and Latin American Communicators in Press Pitches

News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Mon. May 29, 2023: In the fast-paced world of communications, understanding the importance of audience targeting is crucial, especially for Caribbean and Latin American communicators. Crafting effective press releases requires a deep understanding of the target audience, their interests, preferences, and cultural nuances. There is no one size fits all rule. A local pitch cannot be then translated to a national or global pitch and neither can a global pitch then be targeted to a local in country media. This is ineffective communication and a huge waste of time and money says CARIBPR Wire.

In this story, we explore why knowing the press release audience is essential and cite credible sources to highlight the benefits of audience targeting in the Caribbean and Latin American context.

The Relevance of Audience Insights
According to a study by PwC on media consumption in Latin America, understanding the audience is a key factor in successful communication strategies. By knowing their audience, communicators can tailor their press releases to resonate with their target demographic, ensuring maximum impact and engagement.

Cultural Sensitivity and Localization
Cultural nuances play a significant role in effective communication. The Caribbean and Latin American regions encompass diverse cultures and languages. A report by the International Public Relations Association (IPRA) emphasizes the importance of adapting press releases to local cultures, languages, and customs. By catering to the unique preferences of the audience, communicators can build trust and rapport, fostering a stronger connection with their target market.

Enhanced Message Relevance and Impact
A report by the Global Strategy Group reveals that targeted messaging increases the relevance and impact of press releases. By understanding the interests, needs, and pain points of the audience, communicators can craft compelling narratives that resonate with their readers. This targeted approach increases the likelihood of capturing attention, driving engagement, and ultimately achieving the desired communication objectives.

Effective Distribution Strategies
Knowing the audience also helps communicators determine the most appropriate channels and platforms for press release distribution. By identifying the preferred media outlets, journalists, bloggers, and influencers within the target market, communicators can enhance their chances of securing media coverage and reaching the desired audience effectively.

Measurement and Evaluation
Tracking and measuring the impact of press releases is vital for assessing communication success. According to a study by AMEC (International Association for Measurement and Evaluation of Communication), understanding the audience allows communicators to set specific goals and metrics for evaluation. This data-driven approach enables them to gauge the effectiveness of their press releases and make informed decisions for future campaigns.

In the dynamic landscape of Caribbean and Latin American communication, knowing the press release audience is paramount for success. By leveraging credible sources and research, communicators can understand the importance of audience targeting, cultural sensitivity, and message relevance. This strategic approach allows them to optimize press release impact, enhance distribution strategies, and evaluate communication outcomes effectively. By putting audience understanding at the forefront, Caribbean and Latin American communicators can achieve greater engagement, build brand trust, and drive impactful communication campaigns.
