It is public knowledge that the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic resulted in huge financial pressures on media houses especially the online media with little or no revenue from advertisers, the main source of income for most media houses.
The absence of advertisers and sponsors for content generation means that they can no longer make enough money to sustain their wage bill and other running costs.
