"The Barman TV," Africa's first ever bartender reality show has kicked off with auditions in Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Liberia.

The audition which kicked off the journey to find West Africa's top bartender held on January 30, 2017, and had over 80 competing bartenders present.

To be hosted by Mark Barrett, "The Barman TV" is a reality series born out of the idea that Africa is in need of a platform to develop and raise respect for the craft.

“This we feel will have more success than attempting to enlist African bartenders to international competitions as it does not provide a level playing field. We infused this serious agenda with a little bit of entertainment, nightlife and fashion and the TV show was born” explained  Co-creator, Chioma Onyenwe of HA! HA! Media.

The judges for "The Barman TV" includes Head Judge and Show Creator Caesario de-Mederios, Lara Rawa and Chris Beaney.

Filming for the first season of "The Barman TV" kicks off in April 2017.
