Over the past three decades, the Nigerian film industry has built up a remarkable reputation for not only producing some of the most exciting films in the region but also for inspiring new film industries across the entire Africa continent on its way to becoming the world’s second largest film producer.1 Nollywood, as it’s better known, is one of the best ways to showcase and experience the diverse cultures of Nigeria and Africa.

With the rise of the African cinema industry, more Nigerians and fellow Africans have been able to discover and appreciate blockbuster films that feel much closer to home. A recent study even showed that Nigerians are spending much of their free time getting together with friends and family to watch domestic films instead of foreign imports.2

As one of the world’s most familiar consumer electronics and home appliance brands, LG Electronics is investing in African consumers’ love of great entertainment and its power to bring people and cultures together by partnering with big screen superstars Richard Mofe-Damijo and Rita Dominic who were named LG Brand Ambassadors. As the celebrity spokesperson for LG OLED TVs, Mofe-Damijo is involved in events and social engagement activities to introduce consumers to the advantages of LG OLED TV technology. As the new face for LG home appliances, Dominic will be featured in advertising campaigns as well as participate in product launches and social media influencer activities on behalf of the company.

Richard Mofe-Damijo, better known as RMD, is a Nigerian actor, writer, producer and lawyer who even represented the country’s Delta State as Commissioner for Culture and Tourism. In 2005, he won the Africa Movie Academy Award for Best Actor in a leading role and later went on to receive the ceremony’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016.

A beloved actress, producer and the co-founder of The Audrey Silva Company, Rita Dominic got her first starring role in Nollywood hit A Time to Kill, and has starred in over 100 Nollywood movies since, earning several prestigious awards in the process. Rita is the only actress to have won AMVCA’s Best Actress award in both the drama and comedy categories and remains the only West African actress to have won at Kenya’s Kalasha Awards. Undisputedly one of Africa’s finest leading ladies, has described her as a “silver screen icon” capable of “embodying a range of colorful characters.”

“Richard Mofe-Damijo’s undeniable style resonates with the essence of our OLED TVs, while Rita Dominic is a woman of the people, hugely popular because of her graceful poise and powerful brand identity. This is why we wanted both as our newest ambassadors,” said Kim Dong-youn, managing director of LG Electronics West Africa.

“The brand’s state-of-the-art living solutions seamlessly combine the best designs with the most advanced technologies to achieve ultimate performances,” said Dominic. “They’re never willing to settle for second-best particularly in a time when most people around the world are either working or learning from home.”

Much like how films and the cinema experience not only bring people together but also connect on a deeper emotional level, LG Electronics is committed to making life better for consumers around the globe with its various innovations that have been endorsed by inspiring ambassadors that consumers can resonate with.

      Sports promote greater diversity by bringing cultures and people together and its profound impact is felt in many spheres of life. But since the start of the pandemic, most of the world has not been able to enjoy the fruits and joys of this favorite pastime. As countries slowly begin reopening for business and return to life as usual, LG East Africa partnered with the Sports Journalists Association of Kenya (SJAK) to recognize and reward outstanding sporting talent in Kenya.

      The LG Sports Personality of the Month Award, a year-long collaboration, gives LG and SJAK the opportunity to put a spotlight on the most exceptional Kenyan sportsmen and sportswomen for their achievements. A winner is selected by a panel of SJAK members from eight different media outlets in Kenya every month. Five athletes in the fields of tennis, basketball, boxing and marathon running have already been recognized this year with LG Sports Personality of the Month Awards.

      Winners to date include tennis star Angela Okutoyi and basketball player Tylor Okari Ongwae who were both awarded LG Instaview refrigerators in recognition of their amazing achievements on their respective courts. Boxer Elly Ajowi received an LG NanoCell TV while Ruth Chepng’etich, who recently set the world record for the half marathon, received an LG AI DD washing machine for her contribution to the sport. Earlier this week marathoner Titus Ekiru was named the latest winner which included the prize of an LG SolarDOM oven.
      “This award has really motivated me to do well in my next race in Tokyo so I can hopefully bring back another medal for Kenya,” said Chepng’etich.

      This isn’t the first time LG has worked with SJAK, having previously coordinated on the nation’s Footballer of the Month award. According to SJAK president Chris Mbaisi, the LG Sports Personality of the Month Award is already motivating both up-and-coming and established athletes alike at a time when the sports world has had little to be optimistic about.

      Elly Ajowi
      Boxer Ajowi applauded LG and SJAK for creating the much-appreciated award program and said the recognition would inspire other boxers to be the best that they can be in the sport.
      Throughout these creative partnerships, LG is demonstrating its commitment to social sustainability. Collaborations such as the LG Sports Personality of the Month Award underline the crucial role the private sector can play in championing the development of local talent who could one day go for gold and bring pride to a whole nation.

      After updating to the latest web browser with new user interface on LG C9, subtitles on all streaming websites disappears every 2-3mins.
      Video continues to play without subs. The subtitles will re-appear if I move the magic remote but disappears again after 3mins.
      Should be a widespread issue as it's also happening on Youtube.com videos with subs. Un-related but Play/Stop button on magic remote also stop working on the new browser.

      I just got a new TV (43UN7000PUB) and can’t get HomeKit to work properly.  It works fine when the TV is on but won’t work when the TV is off.
      I have seen several threads on this and done some research but did not find a resolution.
      I read several threads that blamed it on the Magic Remote and Bluetooth.  This TV does not have the Magic Remote so I think that can be ruled out.
      One thread pointed out that when the TV is off it loses it’s LAN connection and it’s WI-FI connection and said that could be the problem.  I can confirm this is true with mine as well.  This argument makes perfect sense to me as all connections would be lost when the TV is off.  
      If anyone can help I’d surely appreciate it.
      One thread said the problem was fixed with a FW update.  But that was with a different model and a different FW than mine.  As I recall from memory it was something like FW xx.35.10 and it was a 55” or 65” TV.  My firmware says it is current with version 3.21.36.
      Maybe a moderator could confirm the firmware fix already exists for this issue.  If so, could you please see that it gets pushed out to all HomeKit TVs instead of just that single model?
      Thanks in advance for any help or comments.
