Patrice Motsepe in Talks to Join Vivendi’s Bid for MultiChoice Group


South African billionaire Patrice Motsepe is reportedly in discussions with Vivendi SE’s Canal+ to participate in its bid for MultiChoice Group, valued at $2.9 billion. Motsepe’s potential involvement aims to assist Vivendi in meeting South Africa’s Black ownership regulations while tapping into his business acumen and network.

This aligns with South Africa’s push for economic transformation and empowerment of historically disadvantaged groups. The move reflects a broader trend of collaboration between international corporations and local stakeholders to navigate regulatory complexities.

MultiChoice Group, a leading player in African broadcasting, offers substantial growth opportunities. Canal+ aims to strengthen its position in the African media landscape while empowering Black entrepreneurs.

Vivendi’s bid underscores its ambition to expand in Africa’s growing media sector. Stakeholders are closely watching developments, anticipating the bid’s impact on South Africa’s media industry and broader economy.
