Adeola Oladele Fayehun of Sahara TV has quit her job with the medium. Created in April 2011, Sahara TV is the broadcast outlet of Sahara Reporters, the groundbreaking online news medium commonly referred to as the “Wikileaks of Africa.”
Adeola who regularly hosts a satirical news show on YouTube called Keeping It Real with Adeola, which is produced and published on the YouTube channel for SaharaTV, announced to her viewers and fans that she has quit to continue on her own independently.
Adeola is a Nigerian journalist who specialises in discussing current geopolitical, social and economic issues that affect the daily lives of Africans living on the continent.
She is well known for a controversial 2015 on-street interview where she and fellow Sahara TV journalist and publisher, Omoyele Sowore, asked Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe about when he would be stepping down from office, in 2013.
She also interviewed former Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan on the streets of New York, asking him what he was doing about the then on-going Boko Haram insurgence.
Adeola, who said she has quit her job with Sahara Reporters, however, said that she will continue with her Keeping It Real with Adeola show which she said would be uploaded on her YouTube channel.
After thanking her former boss, Sowore, she solicited for funds to keep the show going.
