    Na wa o, Malaika should run away from that monster she calls husband na.

    Meanwhile, that Femi’s friend from Nairobi is a cutie.

      If Malaika runs away who will pay her school fees and pay for her weave? The reason she is staying is that she isn’t financially independent. Simple.

    err… something is wrong with how the condom was used in the last scene. Eyes under the duvet, perhaps? and she tore it open a little too recklessly IMO. My thoughts are the director should have found more creative ways to show how to properly use a condom without showing too much.

      what the heck are you going on about :/

      About how putting on a condom the right way is important. Wearing one is one thing and putting it on with care to avoid any mishaps is another. Babe didn’t even look at what she was doing. We have teenagers watching this web series and they should know that there are implications of wearing a condom the wrong way.

      PS: please be polite when reacting to people’s comments on platforms as this. Thank you.

      lmao! are u for real??? dts all u got from the whole 21 mins?

      of course not. That was just a part I thought more attention should have been given to… considering the intent of the series is to educate young adults especially teenagers on how to have safe sex.

      You are right, better person. I cringed. It is not just about using a condom but using it PROPERLY.

      Nawa, its difficult to satisfy you guys

      I get what you are saying, but I am hoping the “proper use” of the condom was implied but could not be shown for obvious reasons. This is a family show so some things are shown and others are implied. I wouldn’t read too much into it… Let’s hope she isn’t puking up her guts in the next episode.

      I also think that even though the show is meant to be educational, it really shouldn’t be anybody’s ONLY source of info on sex education… It should supplement what we’ve learned in school, from our parents, health providers, friends (and of course the internet) and so on… It should help make these conversations easier to have and try to make sex less of a taboo topic in our homes and communities. Basically, my point is no one should go putting on condoms wrong because that’s how it was done on Shuga.

  7. merci

    Shugaaaaa! really like sophie, shes beautiful and shes a good actress. Not comfortable with Princess’s kissing scene, maybe because i still see her as that little girl in ”Dear mother”. looking forward to next episode.

    shuga is the best series i have ever enjoyed watching, so much love for Ekene,Sophie and Princess.

    Really like Shuga, that being said I’m concerned on the relationships between couples, I dunno seems everytime you see the couples together its all about sex and all the emotions that go with it. I mean see princess and tobi hey they look cute together yes but is that all there is to their relationship cos that’s all their portraying. I mean she’s just lounging in Uni not giving registerg for school a thot, life is more than that. Maybe cos the series is about HIV awareness oh well.
    I got say it again the foye and femi dynamic is lost on me – don’t quite get their scenes what chance is she giving femi when she’s not broken up with ekene? Maria cant act sha
    Sophie’s still my fave with Nii and Malaika

  12. but how naa

    @ BA I agree with u, u make so much sense. Wearing condom the wrong way is just as not wearing condom at all. And one could contact STI and even get pregnant as a result of improper way of wearing condom.
