A Foray into the World of Television: Shooting the Messenger with Henry Bonsu



Last weekend, I was presented with the opportunity to feature on Henry Bonsu's show, Shoot the Messenger, which airs on Vox Africa UK. I've never properly been on a TV show before so the whole experience was both exciting and frightening at the same time!

Ultimately, I had a thorough blast – from having a professional artist do my make-up (a treat); to reviewing some great stories from the Sunday papers such as this one on Italy's first black minister, Cécile Kyenge (she's got some novel ideas regarding immigration!) and one on Jon Daniel's Afro Supa Hero exhibition; from meeting and sitting beside some inspiring gentlemen, including Ron Belgrave of Sankofa Televisual and community champion, Archbishop Kwaku Frimpong-Manson; to learning that I really have to stop saying "um" and "you know" so much!
