Renowned American television host Steve Harvey will visit Kenya in September and December after fruitful discussions with President William Ruto.

The duo met during Ruto’s visit to Tyler Perry studios in Atlanta, Georgia, where they engaged on various topics regarding the creative space.

Harvey said the September visit will precede the filming of his gaming show ‘Family Feud’ in South Africa and he will later return to Kenya as a guest for the Jamhuri Day Celebrations.

"When I met my brother (President Ruto), he invited me to Kenya. It just so happens that September is when I hit my vacation.

"I'm going to start shooting Family Feud again in Johannesburg but this time for Botswana. So I'm going to be on that side of the world before I go to see my brother (Ruto) and we're going to hang out in Kenya. This is a dream come true," he said.

Ruto, on his part, said Kenya’s creatives can benefit from partnerships and mentoring programs from renowned personalities like Harvey in a bid to unlock more opportunities.

"This is going to change our trajectory…we are going to plan more and I want to be grateful to people around this table. Thank you my good brother for what you are doing with us in Kenya and I want to promise you that when you come, you will find the government aligned to work with you and the people in that space so that we can do more together.

"All the people from Hollywood we appreciate you and we want to see what we can do together so that you can act as an inspiration and mentor to many in Kenya who want to do what you do," said President Ruto.
