Radio personalities Wanjira Longauer and Amina Abdi, both working at Capital FM, are set to link up in hosting the Kenyan spin-off of the talk show, Moments with Mo on EbonyLife TV (DStv Channel 165) from July 1, 2015. The launch of their show will coincide with EbonyLife TV’s second year anniversary.
Moments with Mo is hosted by Africa’s Queen of Chat, Mo Abudu, and has become famous as Africa’s first and only syndicated daily talk show. The Moments with Mo spin-off will be launched simply as Moments and will closely mirror Moments with Mo in structure and style. However, Moments with Mo, still remains on air across the continent but will now appear occasionally for only a limited number of VIP interviews.
Moments will be launched in four flagship countries, to include South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya and Ghana, being the first phase of the roll out as a celebration of creating and broadcasting original, premium and inspiring content with an African soul that showcases the best of Africa for a global Black audience.
A key highlight of Moments is that each focal country will have its own home-grown co-hosts. Another important feature of the new Moments is that each of the four countries will have its own array of guests. Also, each country will have its location shoot which would take place every quarter; each would also have its own full episodes featuring interesting guests and inspiring stories from across Africa; and even more importantly, demonstrate its own uniqueness through its peculiar local symbols and distinctive cultural identity, making the show truly authentic to the country in question.
However, no matter the cultural diversities reflected on Moments from country to country, all the shows will be unmistakably bound together by a number of set props that will be unique to the format, defining it and making it single-minded to viewers across the continent.
