“On Rishante, we are focusing on the strength of standing together as a family. It is especially important in times like this in this country where everybody is struggling to survive. There is always this support system when you go back to the family structure. For us, it felt like a very important time to tell a very beautiful family story. And of course, for Africa Magic, which is a station that caters for the family. Everything they do is all about the family,” he said.
