Vox Africa Introduces New Travel Show
Vox Africa has rolled out a new travel show, My African Passport, hosted by the UK comedian Eddie Kadi.
Eddie Kadi is a familiar face in the UK comedy scene. He is also the first black British comedian to perform at the O2 Arena.
Kadi alongside Stephen Fry is also the founder of Gift & Purpose, which is a production hub that focuses on live events and creative content. Kadi has also made appearances on a variety of TV shows, such as QI, Virtually Famous and The Lenny Henry Show. My African Passport, a travel and tourism programme, was founded by Lyande Kaikai. Kaikai has been involved in many campaigns with KLM, World Travel Market and Airbnb to promote African countries as a travel destination, emphasising on the culture, food, art, and traditions of African countries.
In the first episode, Kaikai and Kadi visit Monrovia where they learn how to cook Liberian food, surf and dance the night away at the top club in the city.
The duo said it had various reasons for being interested in visiting Liberia, such as the fact that Liberia prides itself on being known for its many firsts. It was the first country to welcome liberated African-American slaves.
It was the very first African country to appoint a female president; who was also a former professional footballer.
With such an exciting list of firsts, Kadi and Kaikai say that it just made sense to make Liberia the first country to feature on the travel TV show.
