MTV Base  and the Staying Alive team kept us captivated with Shuga Naija – from the end of 2013, Shuga sailed with us into 2014. We were glued to our screens – empathising with the characters and plotting alternative endings to the show. {If you missed the show, catch up here}

One character whose story tugged at our hearts was Malaika (played by Leonora Okine), because she was a victim of domestic violence. Nii (played by Chris Attoh) was Malaika’s husband.

In order to highlight the problems of domestic violence, the producers of the show have decided to tell Malaika and Nii’s story in an alternative media – to have a wider reaching audience.

    I really was hoping she’ll go Jlo (in enough) on the guy, God forgive me but i was happy when the car knocked that yeye character at the end… Please speak up against domestic violence.

    I love the twist at the end. My heart goes out to those experiencing any form of abuse. May they find the strength and courage to fight back and leave. These numbers are worth saving on the fone, we neva know when we may need them!

    Hmmm… I think I like the ending where Nii gets hit by the car more :)… Lovely some West African men grew seeing abuse and think that is normal to just take their fustration out on women like that. Nicely done.
