You loved the MTV Base series Shuga when we featured it on BellaNaija in 2012, now the hit show is back again.
On Tuesday 25th June 2013, some of your favourite celebs gathered at the Wheatbaker Hotel, Ikoyi, Lagos for the launch of the MTV Staying Alive Foundation campaign series – Shuga, an award winning TV drama about sex, youth and relationships.
MTV Base and MTV Staying Alive Foundation joined forces with the Nigerian government’s National Agency for the Control of AIDS and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to combat a lack of awareness and misinformation about HIV, sexual responsibility and teen pregnancy among Nigerian youth, using the medium of Shuga.
Toke Makinwa, Alex Ekubo, Eku Edewor, Uti Nwachukwu, Chris Attoh, Tosyn Bucknor, Gbenro Ajibade, Beverly Naya, IllBliss, Oreka Godis, Jumai Shaba and Olisa Adibua were some of the stars present at the event.
Alex Okosi (Senior Vice President & Managing Director, Viacom International Media Networks), Colette Otusheso and Georgia Arnold (Executive Director, MTV Staying Alive Foundation) were also present at the event.

Shuga is to be produced by MTV Base and the MTV Staying Alive Foundation in collaboration with NACA, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and UNFPA (United Nations Population Fund).
The series will premiere on MTV Base (DStv Channel 322), Nigerian terrestrial broadcasters and other MTV networks and third party broadcasters around the world from World AIDS Day (1 December 2013).
