Greetings from Norway! Sorry to say that I, today, have tested positive for COVID19, Corona virus. My familiy and I are self-isolating at home for as long as it takes. We are in good health – I only have mild symptoms of a cold. There are people at higher risk for who this virus might be a devastating diagnosis, so I urge all of you to be extremely careful; wash your hands, keep 1,5 meters distance from others, go in quarantine; just do everything you can to stop the virus from spreading.

Daniel Dae Kim
merican actor Daniel Dae Kim announced on Thursday that he has tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.
Kim — who is known for his roles on Hawaii Five-0 and Lost — shared the news in a 10-minute video posted to his Instagram. He had been filming the series New Amsterdam in New York City for the past several weeks before the show halted production because of the threat of the virus. In a darkly ironic twist, he was playing a doctor working to respond to a flu pandemic.
MultiChoice stakes $281.5 million in BetKing, widening Nigeria’s betting market.
MultiChoice purchased a 20% stake in Blue Lake Ventures Limited, a pan-African sports betting and Entertainment Company known as BetKing, in October 2020. Now, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Mwendo Holdings B.V, MultiChoice aims to buy a further 29%.
This means Multichoice will have a non-controlling 49% share in BetKing Nigeria, valued at $281.5 million, in line with its aim to extend its entertainment ecosystem and build important future value drivers.
However, the completion of this deal is dependent on some substantive conditions.
First, Multichoice has to secure debt funding. To complete the transaction, they need to raise about $294.45 million in rand-denominated debt.
Secondly, the completion of the employee share incentive scheme is fundamental. The arrangement includes creating an employee share option plan by apportioning 10% of the company’s equity. More so, shareholders will own shares in the diluted business.
Thirdly, they have to obtain regulatory approvals from antitrust or competition authorities in various jurisdictions.
Other requirements include agreeing on a reasonable exit clause for minorities who will sell down to recoup some of their initial investment.
Multichoice Group CEO Calvo Mawela believes that sports betting is an exciting and buoyant market that is well-aligned with the company’s Pay-TV business. He further adds that the majority of betting enthusiasts watch a lot of games, which Multichoice is known to show on its platform.
About Betking Nigeria
Widely acknowledged as one of the popular sports betting platforms in the continent, Betking Nigeria was founded by Bryon Petzer and Adekunle Adeniji, who previously worked as Bet9ja’s virtual product manager.
As of Dec 2020, Betking increased its annual revenue by 42% to $54.7M in 2019 to $77.9M. Meanwhile, its net asset value stood at $100.2M.
According to Technavio, the sports betting industry is expected to grow by more than $134 billion between 2020 and 2024, with a remarkable compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10%.
Nigeria’s betting space
Popular betting companies like Betking, Sporting Bet, Nairabet, Naijabet, Bet9ja, and Surebet24 dominate the betting space in Nigeria.
In 2018, about 60M Nigerians ages 18-40 were involved in sports betting. Approximately, ₦2 billion was spent on active sports betting daily. Yet, Africa holds only 2% of global sports betting revenue. This, without a doubt, rationalizes BetKing Nigeria investment, as the continent is poised for great momentum as it starts to play catch-up.
