MC Jessy was approached and went to KTN. This thing is bigger than any of those televisions,” said.

He added that TV stations usually like to negotiate and pay per episode, but he didn’t believe in taking his show to the traditional media houses.

He also discouraged video content creators from selling their content to traditional media because of the opportunities the digital industry had opened up.

Do not sell your dream because this thing is bigger than any TV. You can sell shares but not the entire company,” Jalas advised.
