Mr Harvey has visited South Africa a few times over the years and will be spending more time here and across borders as he builds on his media and business empire throughout the continent of Africa. “I have enjoyed the journey of getting to learn about South Africa and Ghana, and am looking forward to giving back to the continent that has fed my soul,” he said.

Steve Harvey expressed his gratitude to the teams who have worked on Family Feud and to the South Africans who warmly welcomed him and his family.

“I am also exceptionally grateful to the contestants who have played a key role in my African journey and to the viewers who will soon welcome me into their homes. Being a foreigner, I am learning along the way and I often get things wrong on the show. Fortunately, the contestants have been amazing teachers – correcting my pronunciation and educating me on all things South African!” he said.
