African Legacy Project starting on FOX Life; 10-episode series profiling entrepreneurs in 4 African countries including two of the sharks from Shark Tank SA.

A new locally produced show, African Legacy Project, is starting on FOX Life (DStv 126 / StarSat 133) profiling some of Africa's entrepreneurs and will give insight in to how two of the "sharks" on M-Net's Shark Tank SA, Gil Oved and Romeo Kumalo, amassed their fortunes.

African Legacy Project is the second locally produced show for FOX Networks Group Africa's FOX Life channel seen on MultiChoice's DStv and StarTimes South Africa's StarSat and will profile 10 different African entrepreneurs from 4 African countries over the course of 10 episodes, starting on Wednesday 26 July at 19:55.

On Tuesday evening FOX in Johannesburg had a launch event for African Legacy Project attended by people like Gil Oved who will be profiled in one of the episodes.

Unfortunately FOX Africa couldn't bother to tell the media covering television about it and that it would be happening, or invite them to the show's launch event.

No transcripts were made available to the press of the people who spoke and since TVwithThinus wasn't there nor knew about it, it's not possible to report about what was said, or more about the show.

African Legacy Project will profile business leaders from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Nigeria and Cote D’Ivoire who all started from so-called "humble beginnings", with episodes covering the deliberate steps they took to achieving their success.

Ivory Coast's Swaady Martin known as "Africa's queen of luxury"; Zimbabwe's Joseph Hundah who is the CEO of Econet Media;  South Africa's dr. Judy Dlamini who is chairperson of the Mbekani Group; Nigeria's Oke Maduewesi who runs the Zaron cosmetic empire; South Africa's Gil Oved who is CEO of The Creative Counsel; South Africa's Renchia Droganis who is the CEO of Africology; the duo Yasmin and Afua of Shehives; South Africa's Romeo Kumalo who is the CEO of Washariki Holdings; South Africa's Candice Thurston who is the founder of the Candi and Co. hair salon, and the Nigerian philantropist Hakeem Bello-Osagie are all profiled.

In the 10 episodes the entrepreneurs will share their worst failures and challenges and tell viewers how they've achieved success with their business ventures.
