Somalilandsun:SMART MONEY is an original new half-hour weekly magazine programme
launching next week across the continent. The show will give viewers an
in-depth look at current money and business topics from across Africa,
as well as offer practical and inspirational financial advice from
African entrepreneurs.

Each week a team of expert presenters will bring diverse stories,
focusing on personal finance, the economy and entrepreneurship. There
will be stories of success and the latest news on big money decisions
affecting African’s lives – and tips for those who are learning how
to “do it themselves” when it comes to their finances.

Larry Madowo, BBC News Africa Business Editor says: “A programme like
this has never been seen or made before in Africa and I’m sure our
audiences will fall in love with it. We have more African journalists
covering African business than ever before and we’re excited to share
their incredible storytelling with viewers across the continent in
English, and soon in Swahili, French and Hausa. To understand the
correlation between Afrobeats music and saving culture, the business
opportunities arising from more African millennials keeping beards or
where to buy roast meat using cryptocurrencies, SMART MONEY is the show
for it – We’re here to make sure your money works as hard as you

Additional content will be available on the soon to be launched new
companion website ( [1]) as well as on the BBC
News Africa YouTube channel [2] and social media pages.
