Media personality Olisa Adibua is set to host a new TV Show called “Bukas & Joints”.

The show, produced by Biola Alabi (former MNet Africa managing director) and led BAM Productions, will take viewers on an exciting journey of food while showcasing some of the finest cuisines and places to eat across the African continent.

A statement from the producers reads: ‘Bukas and Joints’ will capture the very essence of the universal language of food, and Lagos, Nigeria’s largest city, is the first stopover.

The 13-episodes series, with each episode running for half an hour will premiere on March 20, 2016 on AIT Network.

    This looks like a spoof of Diners, Drive ins and Dives.

      does it matter? so we should not have a show because someone already has it?

      But why do we have to have a knock off of every show abroad. Why cant we brainstorm and innovate something that others will follow

      Did Snazz say that the show shouldn’t exist? They made a remark that it’s a spoof of a show which it is so where is the negative in that comment that you had to add salt, pepper and palm oil to it? People just like to find trouble for no reason.

      He really shouldn’t be doing a program about food. They should have given it to a younger person.

    great show idea, i just hope he excercises after each meal, because he is already big bone, no need to become super obese. you can eat all naija delicacies and still be fit.

      He actually fits the role; boisterous and a foodie, if we had a leap..we would assume the person doesn’t eat the food and just poses with it.

      As in, the sight of that Amala alone. Chai!!! From Burger King to Wolfgang Puck, neither can replace Amala and Ewedu. #Homesick

    I hope they upload the episodes to youtube o, and I hope their premise will last. Let’s show the world our authentic naija food……I need some amala in my life!

    The show would be an interesting one considering the fact that there are currently no shows about Nigerian cuisine especially bukka and joint food. Something hints that the show takes from CNN’s Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown. I hope Olisa adopts the perspectives that gives the history of the foods, the people and their culture.

    Love the concept. Wish there were 2 hosts though, a male and a female so we can get different opinions on the bukas and joints. Bloggers like Tuke Morgan and Sisi Yemmie who love to write about food and take pictures of it will be perfect for this show! So will the eat drink Lagos folk.

    Olisa I love because of his command of English, Biola Alabi I love so much also. This is a must watch but why AIT, I no like that station at all.

    Great show idea, poor choice of host.

    Sisi Yemmie will be a perfect co host or guest for this show. The way she talks about food will make you want to watch. I really love the idea of the show; it’s unique to Nigeria and can show parts of our food that is unknown to the world; You know, all those Amala joints we branch by before we reapply our lip glosses and sit pretty in our offices lol. Me, I will be watching sha. #longliveyorubapepperstew.
    It will also be great if we get some simple tips on how to prepare the meals too. Nice one Olisa. I wish you guys the very best.
