Forbes Woman Africa, has launched its first TV show, "Against the Odds with Peace Hyde," through Forbes Africa TV.
Forbes announced that "Against the Odds with Peace Hyde" will premiere on CNBC Africa on 28 April. The show will feature women who are trailblazers in their respective fields of business and who inspire younger women to be bold and break boundaries, contributing to the narrative of growing female power on the African continent.
"The essence of the show is to really celebrate exceptional women. It's about women who have tapped into their courage and persistence, and chosen to keep going in spite of all the hurdles. I think that in order for you to do that you need to have a very strong understanding of your purpose..." Hyde said in a statement.
Per the statement, Hyde will join Editor of Forbes Woman Africa, Methil Renuka, in the premiere episode to discuss the vision behind the series.
"Why only talk about the glass ceiling when you have ceiling-crashers who have done it all and can show the way. They may be very few, but they have had significant successes and a discerning show like this will be lessons from those who made it, to those who would like to scale those same heights and more, very much in line with Forbes Woman Africa's own rich content philosophy," Renuka said in a statement.
Forbes Woman Africa announced that they have teamed up with Ecobank to launch the 12-part series, which will also be available later this year to viewers on Canal Plus Channel 171, DStv Channel 410 and StarTimes Channel 309.
