MEET JEAN LUC GUIZONNE - The face of our first campaign

JOVAGO : Can you tell us briefly about yourself?

JLG: I am a singer and actor amongst other things. In the course of my musical career, I have shared the stage with big stars like Madonna, Stevie Wonder, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion and many others.

JOVAGO : You were one of the main actor of the King Lion Show for many years, can you tell us more about this experience?

JLG : In 2006, after the American Idol tour I came across an ad in a magazine that perfectly fit my profile - interpreting the character of Mufasa in a musical broadway show, Lion King in Paris, we also went to Singapore and Germany. Stage Entertainment launched a nationwide casting and after several months of auditions, I was taken for the role of Mufasa.

JOVAGO: How was the shooting place of advertising, and what do you think of the message conveyed?

JLG: I am immensely proud of being the face of this first campaign. Jovago has a value and quality that is lost today. In my job I have to reassure the customer by showing him that he made the right choice by choosing me. It was not easy to be honest in spite of the rather enjoyable conditions. I was filmed on a simple green background and had to imagine the gestures to be added in the end results. Not to mention the difficulty of switching between languages. Fortunately, the team was gracious and attentive.

JOVAGO: Speaking of new technologies, what do you think of the online services of Jovago.com?

JLG: I find it essential in choosing and preparing for holidays. I am pleased that thousands of people have that opportunity to discover Africa through Jovago.com. It is also a key factor of economic growth on the African continent.

JOVAGO: Tell us about your relationship with travel? Do you travel often?

JLG: If I could I would have spend my life in airport terminals across the globe! (laughs). I really love travel. I am fortunate to be able to travel. I leave for Morocco in early July with my family. I'm anxious because I do not know this country. I had a great tour of Asia between March and April this year. I work out all year, so for me the holidays are synonymous with relaxation.
