REVOLT TV, owned by Sean “Diddy” Combs, announced the premiere of a new half-hour unscripted show called What’s Good Africa. The series is part of REVOLT’s new partnership with What’s Good Networks and their production company, the award-winning What’s Good Studios, based in Nairobi, Kenya.
“Hip-hop is a global culture that truly transcends borders,” Jonathyn Pankratz, VP of Programming at REVOLT said in a press release obtained by The Root. “We’re very excited to partner with What’s Good Networks and What’s Good Studios to spotlight the vibrant Hip Hop scene in Africa, which is full of the young, innovative artists, influencers, and entrepreneurs REVOLT has been championing since our launch.”
Season One features a diverse guest list – Karun Mungai, Victoria Kimani, Wakadinali, Steph Kapela, LooksLikeAvido, Junior Nyong’o, Xenia Manasseh – to name a few.
“We feel it is vital for Africans to tell our own stories and REVOLT really championed us putting our unique storytellers front and center so they can be recognized and celebrated the world over,” says WGA Executive Producer, Josephat Keya.
WGA Host, Nick Ndede and Josephat Keya also shared the inside scoop with NTV – where the show will air locally in Kenya.
