As Africa Day, usually celebrated on May 25, approaches, viewers are in for a treat as DStv and GOtv bring more exciting locally-produced quality programmes.
This is in celebration of exciting content produced in Africa and for Africans, the cable television service provider has said.
EbonyLife TV, a Pan-African Entertainment channel, in association with Wakanow, a travel portal, has produced an upmarket travel show: Destinations Africa.
This is designed for the African traveler and highlights the continent’s top tourist destinations.
The 30 minutes, 12-part series features destinations that include Kenya, Seychelles, Mauritius, Tanzania, Zambia, Rwanda, Ghana, The Gambia, Senegal, Ethiopia, Cote d’Ivoire and Nigeria.
The show airs on EbonyLife TV (DStv channel 165) on Saturdays at 7:30pm, Sundays at 8:30pm and Tuesdays at 9pm.
The Voice Nigeria pits against one another singing acts Waje, Tubaba, Patoranking and Timi and the teams they coach in the spectacular singing competition.
The show airs Sundays at 7pm on Africa Magic Showcase (DStv channel 151) with #Teamwaje leading the pack with 11 talents. #TeamTubaba, #TeamPatoranking and #TeamTimi each have 10 talents in Africa’s most exciting television show.
Fans can download The Voice Nigeria app on the Apple and Android app stores and get updated on backstage photos, news and highlights from Africa’s biggest show.
A repeat of The Voice Nigeria airs on Africa Magic Family (GOtv Channel 2) for GOtv subscribers everyTuesday at 5pm.
Also, as part of commitment to supporting the local entertainment industry and talent, AfricaMagic recently announced its partnership with Nigerian filmmaker, Kunle Afolayan, to launch his much-anticipated pan-African thriller, The CEO, in association with AfricaMagic, which will premiere exclusively on board an Air France flight on June 1 from Lagos to Paris.
Speaking recently at the film’s press conference, the Director, M-Net West Africa, Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu, said: “This partnership is in furtherance of our continued drive to support Nigerian and African cinema by investing in people, ideas and talent, and we can’t wait for fans and lovers of good cinema to watch this movie.”
The CEO is set on a beautiful beach resort on the outskirts of Lagos, Nigeria.
The CEO follows five top executives from across Africa who are dispatched on a one-week leadership retreat by a multinational telecommunications firm to determine who gets selected as the new CEO.
Things go awry when one by one the executives are eliminated in sudden death circumstances, with the finger pointing to the last two remaining executives as prime suspects.
