Anas premiered his latest documentary which exposed the rot in Africa football last month.
This investigative piece has led to the suspension, resignations and dismissal of some football officials on the African continent, including then Ghana Football Association (GFA) President, Kwesi Nyantakyi.
The BBC also confirmed that they are currently working with the ace investigator to bring out another piece.
