nollywood star and talk show host Monalisa Chinda-Coker is set to partner with Goje Africa and other companies to renew and revitalize tourism in West Africa.
Tagged: “Destination West Africa Project”, the main goal of the initiative is to encourage Africans to travel around Africa.
In the chat, Monalisa said they would be visiting tourist attractions to shed light on destinations to promote trade, culture and business. “In addition, we will explore additional tourism opportunities in West Africa and Nigeria. We also look forward to sharing the beauty of our shared heritage, cultural similarities among others.
“Most importantly, we hope to involve young people in these areas to further consolidate the achievements and importance of tourism. And because I have a platform and a huge following, we intend to bring these places to the forefront of the global marketplace and visitor circuit. In addition, as a leader You and me with MonalisaPan-African TV talk show since 2015, our sixth season focuses primarily on tourism and its great potential, especially on the African continent,” she said.
According to the organisers, “Having identified gaps in the domestication of intra-African tourism, Goge Africa and its partners have come together to launch the Destination West Africa project. The project is meant to encourage Africans to travel around Africa, but the campaign starts from the west coast of Africa.”
While they will travel through four West African countries including Benin, Togo, Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire on their first leg, starting with Nigeria, they will go on their second leg to the Gambia, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea, Conakry. History tours will be broadcast on Goge Africa with over 40 million viewers, as well as You and me with Monalisa on DTV.
