TV personality Steve Harvey is bringing the iconic game show Family Feud to the continent of Africa. His media company, Steve Harvey Global, has recently obtained the rights to license the game show in both South Africa and Ghana.

Since 2010, Steve has been the host of the U.S. version of Family Feud, contributing to its continued success in the ratings game. Over the years, Harvey, who is one of the longest-serving hosts in the game show’s history, generated numerous viral funny video compilations and memes.

Now, Steve is set to launch and host Fremantle’s Family Feud in Africa. It will be produced by Rapid Blue, the local production partner of Fremantle in the region.

“Bringing Family Feud to Africa has long been a dream of mine,” he said. “I believe Family Feud will become a household name for local South African and Ghanaian families. And this is just the beginning in Africa. I expect this show to lead to multiple media and business projects in and throughout the continent.”

Family Feud is one of the longest-running and top-rated game shows in the world. Since its inception in the U.S. in 1976, Fremantle has placed it in over 70 international markets such as United Kingdom, Australia, France, India, Philippines, among others. The latest version of the popular game show in Africa will be the first and will be hosted by Steve Harvey himself.

The new version of the Family Feud will start production in Johannesburg before this year ends, and is expected to start airing in the second quarter of 2020.
