Africa with Ade Adepitan
Africa is the most vibrant and varied continent on Earth, with more than 50 countries, and hundreds of different cultures. And this is Africa's time. Journalist and athlete Ade Adepitan travels across Africa to discover how the continent is changing. From the booming technology of Lagos to Mozambique's stunning beaches, and from the endangered gorillas of the DRC to Somalia's war torn streets, Ade sees the best and worst of Africa. With his very personal take on the continent, and extraordinary encounters, this series asks the question: just as the last 30 years transformed Asia, does the future belong to Africa?
