CNN International revamps and rebrands African Voices to African Voices Changemakers; adds Nigeria's Arit Okpo as new presenter.

CNN International (DStv 401) is revamping and rebranding its longrunning African coverage magazine show African Voices to African Voices Changemakers and adding the Nigerian Arit Okpo as new presenter from 9 August 2019.

The format of African Voices Changemakers is also changing and will now focus on profiling and interviewing so-called "changemakers" within different spheres of influence across the African continent, ranging from entertainers and creatives, to athletes and ordinary members of the public trying to make a difference and impacting their communities in various ways.

Arit Okpo is a Nigerian presenter who previously produced and presented content for the EbonyLife TV channel.

"We look forward to this new era of African Voices and its TV and digital programming that will raise the profile of the continent’s changemakers amongst our international audience," says Zara Driss, account director for CNN International's commercial division, in a statement.
