Mr Laurence Mitchell (Business Development Executive) from Moja Media says: “For years the people of Africa in general, and South Africa in particular, raised concerns that BRICS is a concept only understood by government people. It is for this reason that Moja Media decided to initiate the first-ever BRICS Channel on a TV platform so that we bring opportunities closer to the people and not only decision-makers of Brics and its governments. This opens the door for the creative arts and for filmmakers and producers to come forward to us with their concepts. We welcome you to become our partners!”

In welcoming this channel on StarSat platform, Ms Debbie Wu CEO of On Digital Media (ODM), has this to say:

“ODM is a broadcaster dedicated to a developmental paradigm in the broadcasting space. We believe that access to information to the most ordinary and rural communities will ensure a better-educated society. In order to bring such information and opportunities in reach to everyone, StarSat is delighted to work with Moja Media to deliver this important Channel”
