boilerEbru Africa TV station will soon launch a Kenyan version of ‘Shark Tank’. They’ve been running promos asking for business-people with brilliant ideas to submit to them, for a chance to attract investors.

Few details have been given, and it’s not clear whether the show dubbed ‘Boiler Room’ will operate on a similar model as Shark Tank.

But I must say that I’m not holding my breath. The Promo was clearly done by amateurs, with the cliché ’10 millionaires and 10 million beggars’ an instant put off. The phrase was first used when our population was that, but today we’re over 40 million.

The presenter also says Kenya is the 6th poorest country in Africa. Cut us some slack.

Here’s the promo video anyway.
