Ukraine star seeks African roots

Ukraine star seeks African roots
BBC News

Olga Betko from the BBC World Service writes about travelling to Nigeria with Ukraine’s famous television presenter Myroslav Kuvaldin in search of his long-lost father and to find out more about his African heritage.

With his dark skin and his huge mane of dreadlocks, Myroslav Kuvaldin is often seen as a foreigner in his motherland, Ukraine.

“I’ve been asked many times where I learnt Ukrainian. My favourite answer is: ‘Do you know how harshly I was beaten to learn it?'”
