The Sisters Show, a new talk show & podcast hosted by five sisters from The Gambia, who all have diverse views, different professions, and vibrant personalities, is set to transform and inject new features into the talk show industry.

The goal of the talk show is to have honest conversations, each bringing in their unique perspectives of various burning topics from health and wellness, entrepreneurship, finance, relationships, innovation & current entertainment and lifestyle news events.  The Sisters Show seeks to also connect people to have honest conversations, through which they can educate, inspire, and empower each other. It will also bring various experts from all walks of life; from financial advisers to doctors, dietitians, therapists, technology/innovators, entrepreneurs, artists, etc. to have a conversation with the sisters and share their experience and exchange ideas with our diverse audiences in the African continent and around the World.    The Sisters Show, was premiered on August 22nd, 2020 at 7:00pm GMT / 3:00pm EST. Just within 6 hours, their live video reached over 6000 viewers.   The audience of the show has been from a wide range of demography. Just few weeks, two episodes, the sisters have managed to attract the attentions of women and men of all ages because of the hot burning and variety of topics they discuss on the show which include social and economic issues.   “We know there is a gap in media for us to fill. There are lot of young women that need mentors in Africa.  We will focus one discussion that push the envelope, even if it gets uncomfortable for our audience. We will also be sharing information to empower those that want to start their own businesses and brand. People that aspire to go into the health care system, the corporate world or to follow their passion if their calling is to work in the beauty industry. We want to be a platform for all people, including older women too. The topics we discuss are quite diverse and of course health will be part of what we talk about since we have two doctors on the team.  The change we want to bring is for the whole of the African continent, people of color or anyone that is looking to be inspired and empowered. Change starts with the mind and taking actions. We as Africans can no longer sit back to allow people that do not look like us or know our culture or stories to speak for us or to lead our generation. We are capable as Africans. We hope you join us every Saturday at 7:00pm GMT on Facebook Live for great weekly conversations.”   The Sisters Show is hosted by:  Dr. Jay Ceesay has been a health care provider for over 20 years.
