According to Sidney Poitier's Wikipedia page, he was born in the States (Miami). Although he was raised in the Bahamas, he cannot represent that country in this quiz. Still, a great idea for a quiz!

Great quiz idea

But Botswana is spelt wrong and Rohff was born in Madagascar, not Comoros

You're right! Botswana now corrected and an actual Comoros-born person has replaced Rohff.

By the way, I think your choice for Georgia is a little unfair,it would be like choosing Hitler for Austria. May I suggest Pirosmani?
