What I am most grateful for is the incredible opportunity given to me by the BBC to take my passion for African stories to the world stage and I look forward to reflecting the intriguing nuances of our continent in the story I will produce. 
  I have always believed deeply and resolutely in the immense power and potential of Africa and Africans, and Komla Dumor was for me, one of the best examples of that; not just in his body of work, but in his personality too. To be a part of continuing his legacy is such an honour it feels almost like a dream!”
