The profile of Nigeria’s movie industry – Nollywood keeps rising. Nollywood stars have millions of fans across the globe. The industry certainly deserves media support and there is a strong demand from fans for every single detail on the stars and their movies.
MNet’s Africa Magic Channel has produced its first-ever original series – JARA – “The flagship new series is packed with fun news and information, direct from the thriving heart of Africa’s busiest film hub. Screening to DStv audiences every Saturday evening in primetime (19.30 CAT), JARA is hosted by two of Nigeria’s hottest stars…popular and sociable Big Brother All Stars winner Uti Nwachukwu and sensational entertainment personality Helen Paul.“
On Sunday 27th February 2011 at the Genesis Deluxe Cinema in Lagos, MNet officially launched the show with a fun-filled event. Guests including Nollywood stars Desmond Elliot, Monalisa Chinda, Nse Ikpe Etim and Omoni Oboli enjoyed performances by Glo Naija Sings winner – Casey, Mo’Cheddah and Bez as well as jokes delivered by Koffi and Owen Gee. It was a dual celebration for MNet – the 1st year anniversary of Africa Magic Yoruba and Africa Magic Hausa Channels was also feted at the event.
