It’s a couple more weeks till season five of long-running drama series and multimedia campaign, MTV Shuga, starts and we cannot wait!
The series, which follows the lives of young people on the African continent, will be back in March 2017 and it has been revealed that Nigerian music star Seyi Shay will be joining the cast.
Season 5 of the drama is tagged “MTV Shuga: Down South” and will also star Given Stuurman, Ayanda Makayi, Stephanie Sandows, Winnie Ntshaba and Samkelisiwe Makhoba.
South African rapper and hip hop star Kwesta and Nigeria’s Afro-pop diva Seyi Shay will be making walk-on appearances as themselves in the new series.
The show has successfully highlighted issues affecting young people in Kenya and Nigeria for nearly a decade. MTV Shuga is using powerful contemporary storylines and relatable characters to disseminate public health messages targeted squarely at African youth, with a particular focus on adolescent girls and their vulnerability to HIV infection and unintended pregnancy, and exploring sexual identity.
