For a special treat, our guest today is Nigeria's Emeka Onunkwo, casting director for, and founder of VOAfrica 2021 - Africa's Largest Voice Over Conference. We will chat about the state of the voice-over industry on the African continent, its potential, and the hurdles it is currently facing. Watch the video here:  * Find out why localization provides so many opportunities for voice artists all over Africa and around the world * We talk about VO in Nigeria, Kenya, Zambia, Cote d'Ivoire.. VOAfrica 2021 is a 3 part vision. The first part is to create a platform where African voice-over talents can Learn, Network, and grow their VO business. The second is then to help African talents resident in Africa cast for global projects while simplifying global access to these African talents. Finally, the 3rd part of the vision is to help African voice projects go global through partnerships and collaborations.
