About Us

Silverbird Group is a diversified multi-media company with holdings in Radio, Television, Real Estate, and Cinemas.

The company is a leader in innovation, and has earned an international reputation. Silverbird’s Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria (MBGN) brand produced the first and only black African Miss World in 2001, and Silverbird carved a niche as a ground-breaking company by building the first international standard mall and Cineplex in Nigeria, the Silverbird Galleria, which paved the way for other malls in the country.

We aim to deliver innovative, entertaining, trustworthy programs and services which offer diverse opinions, robust debate and opportunities for interaction.

Statement of Purpose

Our experience in the media industry puts us in a strong position from a ratings point of view and gives room for development in the content-generation point of view. Yet the state of the media industry will bring fresh challenges as new channels and platforms are introduced and audiences are presented with ever-widening choice.

In all we do, we will stay true to our fundamental mission/character that enables us explore new ways to contribute to the Nigerian Entertainment and Media industry.
