‘Family Feud’ Comes To South Africa & Ghana

American comedian and show host Steve Harvey has announced that the popular game show will start its productions in South Africa and Ghana. Harvey who is in Africa to promote the deal made the announcement Monday, August 26 at a press conference in Johannesburg.

“Bringing Family Feud to Africa has long been a dream of mine,” Harvey is quoted saying by Deadline. “I believe Family Feud will become a household name for local South African and Ghanaian families. And this is just the beginning in Africa. I expect this show to lead to multiple media and business projects in and throughout the continent.”

The local South African version of the show will start production in Johannesburg in late 2019 and begin airing in the second quarter of 2020. The productions will be handled by Rapid Blue, part of the BBC Studios international family of production companies and Fremantle. Family Feud Africa will be hosted by the American TV legend.

The game show pits two families against each other, the family that gives the most popular answers to surveyed questions, takes the cake.  The show has been on air since mid-70s. Harvey has hosted the show since 2010.

This move is part of a shift to Africa, a trend that proves Africa is the next big business market.
