Ikenna Azuike is the creator and presenter of What's Up Africa (a show produced by RNW Media and BBC World News) and co-founder of Strawberry Earth. What’s Up Africa returns for its third season, and in this new series Ikenna travels across the region to uncover some of East Africa’s most compelling stories. He finds out what it really takes to be middle class on the continent and why Zambia may be turning its back on China for a new best friend…
What’s up Africa, which was recently nominated for an AIB - International Media Excellence Award in the category of specialist programme, has already received over 1.5 million views online over the last two and a half seasons and is now making its content even more appealing to its mostly young, digitally-savvy audience. By airing two 90-second episodes a week – on Wednesdays and Fridays - instead of one longer piece, the new series will be more clickable and shareable on social media.
On this episode of #TheStroll, Ikenna and I discuss; What’s Up Africa 3, the current state of press freedom on the African continent, and he also shares some advice for young people on self-discovery.
