Popular Billionaire and the world’s richest man bill gates has revealed been a fan of a popular South African soapie Rhythm City. He said this in a blog post with the title Five Reasons I’m Hopeful about Africa;
The billionaire business man revealed that the first time he watched the show was when he came for an Aids conference in Durban sometime last year;
“The show, which has characters speaking in the four main languages of South Africa (Xhosa, Zulu, English, and Afrikaans), revolves around people trying to break into the music industry. Some of the storylines are a bit out there (it is a soap opera, after all), but when you see the show, it really brings home how far South Africa has come since the end of apartheid. You take a step into the lives of everyday South Africans who are dealing with the relationship and business issues you’d see anywhere in the world. As the continent continues to develop and thrive, I predict we’ll see many other shows like this in other countries,” he wrote.
