A talk show that showcases successful black women living and working in the United Kingdom, The Jo Maxwell Show, is set to hit Nigerian TV screens and cyberspace.
According to its Host, Ibijoke (Jo) Maxwell, the show has already begun including women resident in Nigeria on its guests’ list as production begins for its second season.
Nigerian Born-British, Maxwell, told Potpourri the show evolved from her mission to empower African women through positive highlights.
She said: “The inspiration behind the show was the consistent lack of representation of black women on mainstream British screens. Launched on YouTube in 2017, the Jo Maxwell Show aims to provide an avenue for women to discuss various topics of interest ranging from personal issues to family, marriage, children, sexual abuse, domestic violence and other real life issues; as well as share success stories in the area of career.
“The first season piloted last year and aired online; it was a huge success. The intention is to move to TV, both on cable and in the terrestrial world. For someone who wasn’t a known media personality before now, I think the traffic garnered so far has been good.”
