The conversations, aimed at spotlighting the myriad issues faced by women in everyday life, will be hosted by award winning actor Tomike Adeoye in a four-episode weekly instalment throughout International Women’s Month.
For its first conversation, Knorr is bringing leading African energy expert Rolake Akinkugbe-filani, entrepreneur and activist Maureen Kabrik, chief commercial officer at Mixta Africa, Ijeoma Mba, programmes director at Reboot Africa, and health communication expert, Chioma Nwakanma-akanno to discuss the patriarchy and sexism over soup.
Chef Emeka will be in charge of bringing to simmer Knorr’s special recipe soup as the quartet digs deep into a needful conversation and the Chef’s delicious soup.
Speaking about the special series, producer Seun Oluyemi, said in a statement released ahead of the programme’s debut, “There is no such thing as having too much conversation about the subjects that matter the most, and in this month especially, and every day if possible the conversation that matter is on women’s place in the social, economic, political and cultural space of the country.”
“With Knorr powering these conversations and the line-up of amazing women the show is unveiling over the month, not to mention the tantalising dishes that will be whipped up by Chef Emeka with help from Knorr’s special recipe catalogue; it is bound to be a thrilling experience for all.”
