‘Politico Politica with Isabella Akinseye’ brings youthful vibe into politics
As Nigerians are picking up their PVCs to elect a new set of leaders next month, political discussions have gone into a frenzy. And with last minute shenanigans of politicians jumping ship and forming new alliances, almost everyone with a social media account has a thing to say. Like sports, Nigerians – both young and old like their politics.
A new show, Politico Politica with Isabella Akinseye is switching things up with a magazine format that aims to educate the viewer on the different aspects of the guest’s political life from the serious to the light-hearted.
Hosted by media entrepreneur and CEO of Yellow Tamarind Productions, Isabella Akinseye, the show which premiered on September 30, 2018 on YouTube and just kicked off its second season. Each episode can be watched in its entirety (Full Episode) or in segments (Topic of the Day, Politics and More, Project Nigeria, Quick Fire, In Other News, Final Words)
For those who want to save on data, the show is on TV on Mon/Weds/Fri at 6: 30 PM (repeat broadcast at 7: 30 AM) on Views Channel (Startimes ch. 108).
Unlike On The Couch with Falz and Leila which focused solely on presidential aspirants, Isabella Akinseye spreads the net wide by featuring guests contesting for Reps, Assembly, Senate, Governorship and Presidential. And this extends to the political parties of the guests. It is great to see young people using media to have intelligent discussions on news, current affairs and politics.
