“Young, Famous and African” will be the first African reality series to be featured on Netflix.
Multiple award-winning media maven Peace Hyde will add to her list of already impressive achievements by being the creator and executive producer of the reality show which will be airing soon.
The British-Ghanaian has been highly celebrated as a journalist, tv host, entrepreneur, and activist. She started her career in Ghana as the TV host of Friday Night Live on GH One and MTN Hitmaker.
She quickly rose to become one of Africa’s most successful media exports globally by creating and producing groundbreaking hit shows like the two leading flagship talk shows, Forbes Africa’s My Worst Day with Peace Hyde (3 seasons), and Forbes Woman Africa’s Against the Odds (2 seasons) on the CNBC Africa.
Hyde was named in the United Nations Most Influential People of African Decent list in 2018, 2019 and 2020 as one of the 100 most influential young people in Africa.
She took to her Instagram on Tuesday saying,“ We are making African history telling our stories and I am so honoured, excited and ready”.
“It’s been a lot of sleepless nights and early mornings but the dream has finally paid off…. Get ready world, the Africans are coming,” she added as she shared photos of the superstars on the show which include Diamond Platnumz from Tanzania, Annie Idibia from Nigeria, Swanky Jerry from Nigeria, Zari “The Boss Lady” Hassan from Uganda, and South African superstars Nadia Nakai, Khanyi Mbau, Andile Ncube and Naked DJ alongside an array of entertainment heavyweights.
The show is set for a global release to over 200M Netflix subscribers.
