Jason Njoku

Jason Njoku is CEO and Co-Founder of iROKO Partners. He graduated from the University of Manchester in 2005 with a Chemistry degree. After several failed business attempts in the world of online media, he moved back home with his mum at the age of 29. Whilst back at home, he observed his mum's love of watching Nollywood films. A search for a reliable source of films online yielded nothing, and so the idea to stream Nollywood films online was born. In 2010, Jason moved to Lagos, Nigeria and set-up iROKO Partners.

iROKO Partners was also one of the first companies in the Nigerian digital music scene, launching iROKING in in 2011. The platform has almost 100,000 registered users who have access to over 35,000 tracks by 400+ artists. iROKING also manages the YouTube pages of 80 artists and has generated over 130,000,000 views in total.

In 2012, Njoku was touted by Forbes Africa as one of Africa's Top Young Millionaires to watch and has also been named as one of London's Top Black Men of Power in Black Enterprise Magazine.
