You might think of Monaco, St. Barts, or even Hvar when you imagine a playground for Idris Elba, Naomi Campbell, Ed Sheeran, and Liam Payne, but you generally don't think of Accra. Ghanaians, you just might after Crazy Rich. This is so that the glittery, stylish, and gorgeous set can hang out; a side of the West African country that is rarely seen. Eddie Kadi, a rising comedian, serves as our tour guide and entrance pass into this private society, which is filled with a wealth of culture, history, and extraordinary access, in this 1x60' TX pilot from Rumpus Media.
Joined for the ride by another famous comedian mate who's a first-time visitor to Ghana, Eddie's taking them and us behind-the-scenes of this high-end, mega-rich, uber-luxe side of Ghana, whilst also digging deep into the beauty of the country's culture and history. Eddie knows all the places worth going and all the people worth knowing, from lavish retreats and extravagant restaurants to billionaire business stories of success, innovators, multi-millionaire playboys and Afrobeats megastars. As a globally celebrated ambassador for all things Africa, Eddie has access to a Ghana no usual tour operator could take you to.
Over the course of a week, the two comedians will be fully immersing themselves in the rich culture, history, luxe local lifestyle and surprising stories, whilst the pair also explore, play and party in this comedic travel romp.
Eddie Kadi said: "I am so thrilled to be working with Rumpus and Channel 4 on this very special project. I'm so excited to showcase the different layers of this beautiful continent - the culture, lifestyle and, most importantly, the people. Africa is so diverse and is home to some of the most successful, impactful and innovative people in the world. Sharing their stories will be an absolute revelation!"
