• Despite complaining, the broadcaster however praised the production of the film saying it is of high quality.
The host of the Gidi and Ghost Morning show on Radio Jambo, Joseph Ogidi aka Gidi has raised concerns about the popular reality show Young, Famous and African on Netflix.
In a statement on Thursday, the veteran broadcaster complained that the series has imitated the American style too much.
Gidi pointed out that if he were the producer of the film, he would ensure there are characters with typical African characteristics, giving the example of Kenyan musician and entrepreneur, Esther Akoth aka Akothee.
"If I were a producer, I would invite our Akothee to come to her house where she uses to cut bushes and paths while complaining about various issues," Gidi said on Facebook.
He hinted that if he was the producer he would make sure there is an episode where the mother of five chases the other characters on the show until they give up their fake accents.
"Then a juju man from Nigeria comes out and turns him into an ant and then brings him back to Kenya. Now that is the real African drama," Gidi noted that an African reality film must have magical characters and local doctors.
"And why are they pushing their idea of a woman having a child with another woman with the words LGBTQ?" he questioned.
Despite complaining, the broadcaster however praised the production of the film saying it is of high quality.
This comes after Akothee confirmed that she has been following the Netflix show which has brought together famous stars from different African countries.
Recently, she commented on the second episode of the recently released movie where she praised popular Nigerian model Swanky Jerry for his style and sense of humor that impressed him.
