Founded by Marie Lora-Mungai, Restless Global leverages a deep network of media experts with a strong focus on Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, and Ivory Coast.


Over the past 13 years, Marie’s work - first as a journalist and then as an entrepreneur and producer - has focused on creating compelling content and companies that challenge the world’s understanding of Africa.

She notably built a studio and an 80-person production team in Kenya, raised several million dollars to finance African media initiatives, created and distributed viral TV shows (including the hugely popular XYZ SHOW now in its 13th season), launched one of the first VOD platforms on the continent (, acquired by TRACE Group), executive produced several TV series in Nigeria, organized a major event which generated 17 million euros in equivalent advertising value for partners, and ran a panafrican talent management agency.
