Touted by some as the next Larry King, Oduwole is  reportedly committed to  Rebrand Africa by showing the positive things in about the continent, and making  the case for education the Girl Child in Africa and Emerging Markets.

As an invited guest to the recent African Union 50th anniversary celebrations in Ethiopia, she has in her quest of pursuing her goal interviewed leading African business, political, and sports personalities, including eight  current African Presidents, Africa’s richest person, Aliko Dangote and Tennis super stars – Venus  and  Serena Williams.

That, she believes is one simple way to inspire the African Girl Child, and show the world the need to educate the  continents often forgotten Girl Child, of which Zuriel is one.

The interview with the award winning documentary film maker, conference speaker and writer is featured in the August 2013 edition of Forbes Africa.
