Africa Magic to launch three brand new indigenous series this quarter
Africa Magic will premiere three new indigenous series representing the three major tribes in Nigeria this first quarter. The local channels, available on all DStv and GOtv platforms, will welcome ‘Nwaanyi Ike’ on Africa Magic Igbo, ‘Dalla Dalla’ on AM Hausa and ‘Irora Iya’ on AM Yoruba.
‘Nwaanyi Ike’ will lead the pack, launching on February 1, 2023, at 7 pm on Africa Magic Igbo (DStv ch. 159). The title meaning, ‘Strong Woman’, follows the polygamous Okeke family and the drama that ensues after their father’s death. Chaos ensues in a polygamous family after the sudden death of their patriarch, as the first daughter, convinced that she is upholding her father’s legacy, wages war with her only brother and further divides the family. Meanwhile, external forces try to take advantage of the discord. Fans who miss the series during the week can catch the Omnibus (full weekly repeat) every Sunday from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm.
‘Dalla Dalla’ comes next, premiering on February 13, 2023, at 8 pm on Africa Magic Hausa. The series follows yet another polygamous family, but with different circumstances. Set in the North, the story is about hunger for things beyond one’s reach. The main character, Farouk, receives a keepsake of $120,000.00 from his close friend Hamisu to keep it secret. In an unexplained turn of events, someone murders Hamisu and leaves Farouk with a windfall that no one knows about, or so it seems. What is Farouk to do with this “gift”? Does he keep it? Or does he make sure it gets where it’s supposed to go?
Enjoy this story about hunger for money, material possessions, love, power, survival and revenge every weekday on AM Hausa (DStv ch. 156 and GOtv ch. 4) at 8 pm. Catch the repeat the next day at 7 am.
‘Irora Iya’ will premiere on March 1, 2023, on Africa Magic Yoruba. The series is about a teenage girl who gets pregnant after secondary school, runs away from home and tries to abort her baby. However, the doctor, who secretly works for an infant trafficker, cajoles Morayo into seeking refuge with the trafficker. The trafficker finds out from her Herbalist that Morayo is very important to her establishment and must not leave. When Morayo discovers the true horrors of the place, she makes futile attempts to escape while her parents and former boyfriend look for her. Will Morayo ever be found?
Catch new episodes every weekday at 6:30 pm on AM Yoruba (DStv ch. 157 and GOtv ch. 5) and repeats every Sunday from 7:30 am to 11:00 am.
