Iroko Partners comprises five web brands – iROKOtv, iROKING, iROKtv, NollywoodLove and YorubaLove.  Njoku is building a very modern digital distribution infrastructure using Amazon Web services, Ooyala and several other video ad networks to service the second largest movie industry (by volume) in the world – the Nigerian movie industry, also known as Nollywood.

Panda Daily’s Sarah Lucy reports that last year, Iroko did eight million YouTube streams a month, with a $1 million revenue run rate. The success of NollywoodLove on YouTube led to a successful investment from US-based hedge fund Tiger Global, who led a two round funding amounting to $8 million, making it one of the biggest single investments in a West African internet venture. Another investment of about $2 million then followed again in July 2012 led by Swedish-based hedge fund Kinnevik.
