Africanoboiscripted launched on January 26th with a 2 minute skit entitled “Spare Some Change,” and in just over 2 weeks the channel has received nearly 30,000 views and 6,000 subscribers.
PapaLee Music is providing the music for the channel – which will feature skits and parodies starring AfricanoBOi aka Bryan Oji. Bryan is a youtube star – with over 150,000 subscribers and over 95 million views on his Africanoboishow channel on YouTube. Bryan recently moved to Los Angeles from Houston, and with the help of BJP Entertainment is charting a course through the maze that is Hollywood.
“The goal of Africanoboiscripted is to give Bryan another platform to show what he can do,” says William Hanford Lee Jr., CEO of Burbank based media and management company BJP Entertainment and Bryan’s personal manager. “When you ask people in Hollywood what they think about YouTube talent, you can get some weird responses. Africanoboiscripted is an opportunity to hopefully create some viral content and show that Bryan is ready to go to the next level. I don’t believe for a minute that the success he’s had online is some sort of fluke.”
“On Africanoboiscripted Bryan will be working with a script, a director, an editor and the whole team at ChiWay Entertainment to create content that both satisfies his hardcore fans, and also has the potential to make its way to outlets outside of YouTube.” Lee has also directed several of the shorts on Africanoboiscripted.
The most recent short entitled The Crazy Nastyass Streetwalker (a parody of the hugely popular The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger) dropped on Tuesday and has generated over 8,000 views in just 3 days and has been called “A Hot Mess” and a “Hood Classic”.
