Here are some excerpts from his interview:
What makes you qualified to host a pan-African reality show?
It’s quite interesting…originally I am African but I come from a completely westernised perspective of Africa and Africans
How are you preparing yourself?
I’ve just been doing quite a bit of reading; I’ve been looking at different countries in Africa.

Anyway, the show should be fun…I hope one of the Nigerian girls win!
