MEDIA STATEMENT | CHANNEL AFRICA ANNOUNCES NEWEST ADDITIONS

Johannesburg, Wednesday, 4 August 2021 – Channel Africa is proud to announce a brand new IKB Programme The African Passport’. The online radio show will be produced and hosted by author, Mr. Godfrey Madanhire popularly known as Mr. G and will premier this Thursday, the 5th of  August between 08h00 – 09h00 Central African Time. The programme addresses how Africa is often portrayed as a dark continent both in the media and everyday conversations. It seeks to change the narrative by providing a platform to showcase homegrown high rollers and pacesetters, who dream and strongly believe in a United Africa.

 

‘The African Passport’ brings a new perspective to Africa’s reality by giving the younger generation a platform to appreciate what their motherland can offer. This is the generation that often is negated when it comes to programmes that aim at reconstructing the continent. This is a high energy programme that is a home to our young professionals and the youth.

 

Another exciting addition to the Channel Africa family is Mr. Luyanda Maome who has made his comeback to the station as the producer and presenter of ‘Africa of the Future’ which broadcasts Tuesdays between 08h00 -09h00 Central African Time.

 

Acting Business Manager of Channel Africa, Mr. Maurice Mate stated “nowhere across the continent will you find a combination of radio programmes that tackle the issues of Africa like at Channel Africa. Indeed, this platform offers a plethora of insights that would empower our citizens in creating a better life for themselves”.
