As host of both shows and a native of Sierra Leone, Elizabeth uses her native name Sia-Sia.  Ms. Yaba attended Long Beach City College and Barkley College. Ms. Yaba trained with Continental Cablevision for two years as producer and host. She has had the privilege in her expansive 30 year career to interview many respected leaders and people, including: Councilman Bernard Parks and the former late President of Ghana, Jerry Rawlings. President Rawlings visited Los Angeles in November of 1995 and Yaba TV filmed his tour. The list also includes the late superstar Michael Jackson, the late Isaac Hayes, legendary Stevie Wonder, and a host of other celebrities who came to honor the President. A clip of these influential people can be found on the Yaba TV YouTube at: Yaba Media YouTube Channel. Read Ms. Yaba’s autobiography to learn more about the amazing people she has interviewed.

Yaba TV was established in December of 1992. The concept of Yaba TV Show is to bridge the cultural divide between Africans and African-Americans based on first-hand knowledge and to connect with other cultures in our shared community.

Yaba TV is a multi-cultural show that fits the fabric of Southern California and has acquired millions of viewers on television because of the cultural content including the vibrant entertainment from various parts of Africa. There is no show like it in Southern California.
