Sony Pictures Television (SPT) is bringing on Kunle Falodun to oversee television content for Africa.

Falodun, who will be based out of the London office, will help drive SPT’s ambitions for the continent.

In 2004, he moved from Nigeria to the U.K. as the Business Development director of Optima Sports Management International (OSMI) and joins SPT from Distribution Africa, where he was head of Business Development.

Falodun said of his new appointment: “I look forward to this new challenge with great anticipation and expectation. Sony is a great company with truly world class products and I am really positive and excited about what we can do on the continent of Africa over the next few years.”

Educated at the University of Ilorin in Nigeria, Falodun completed his MBA at the University of Bradford in the UK in 2012.

Based in Culver City, Calif., Sony Pictures Television is one of the television industry's leading content providers. It produces and distributes programming in every genre, including series, telefilms, theatrical releases and family entertainment around the world from top-rated daytime drama "Days of our Lives" to  game show "Jeopardy."
