What inspired you to start ACE TV? Hmm… so who has been on the Spice show?
I always wanted to have a Television Network and A show that can inspire young people to wake up and do more. To follow their dreams and achieve them and make this continent proud .I grew up not appreciating failing governments in Africa. I always believed in Entrepreneurship ,the pursuit of ones dreams and the importance of using your talent to contribute the society .Which explains why the TV and the Show. I started out my TV show with the likes of John Dumelo (Ghanian Actor) and Larry Koldsweat(Nigerian Actor) its objective is to inspire and motivate young people of this generation to achieve their dreams. The show aired for a while at LTM TV Douala but when the desire to have my own TV channel grew I moved to Yaounde in 2016 where I started my Online TV and here we are!!!..Today we’ve had the likes of superstar Stanley Enow on the show, Locko too has been on the show .We also had an Italian Supermodel Annalisa Sambin on the show all the way from Italy.Just to mention a few . Check out the juicy interview with Stanley Enow below. Watch our shows on Ace Online TV on Facebook.
STANLEY ENOW ON THE SPICE SHOW!
What are some of the challenges you have faced and how have you overcome them?
I haven’t seen challenges yet, rather I just see reasons to work harder. For example , I started thinking of how I could get my TV channel in front of a wider audience And boom!!! I realized it will be best for me to sponsor my shows online so it reaches a wide audience. So if reaching more people was going to be a challenge I found out a solution.
Any upcoming projects?
Yes. We intend to build a brand an Ace Online TV brand that will become a Cable Television Network so that we reach a wider audience and inspire more people. We also plan to do a lot of Reality shows, Talent shows air short movies,Comedy skits, Music, fashion shows, Red Carpet shows and so much more.

Any last words for aspiring Entrepreneurs?
My advice to aspiring entrepreneurs is, don’t ever give up on your dreams .In this journey of Entrepreneurship there will be dark days, months and even years but do not let that drown you. Keep moving, crawl. do anything but keep going ,until that light shines at the end of the tunnel!!! You can do it until you give up on yourself.
