Vox Africa has launched a new travel show hosted by UK comedian Eddie Kadi. The show, My African Passport. Eddie Kadi is a well-known name in the UK comedy industry and the first black British comedian to be at the O2 Arena.
Alongside Stephen Fry, Kadi is also the founder of Gift & Purpose, which is a production house focusing on creative content and live event. Kadi has also appeared a variety of TV shows, such as Virtually Famous, the Lenny Henry Show and QI. My African Passport, a travel and tourism show, is founded by Lyande Kaikai. Kaikai has worked on numerous campaigns with Airbnb, KLM and World Travel Market to promote African countries as a travel destination, with emphasis on culture, art, food and traditions of African countries.
In the first episode, Kadi and Kaikai travel around Monrovia, learning how to surf, cook Liberian food and turn up in the top club in the city. The duo said the reasons for their visit to Liberia is “Liberia prides itself on being known for firsts. It was the first country to welcome freed African-American slaves. It was the first African country to elect a female president; who was a former professional footballer. With so many interesting firsts, it just made sense to make it the first country to feature on the MAP TV show.”
