For local series, Africa Magic has unveiled a stellar lineup of new original programming which hit TV screens this October:
Venge tells a scandalous story of secrets, lies, and betrayals. Viewers will get to go on a journey with Bibi, a young bistro owner accused of money laundering – as she unravels several conspiracies trailed by murder and fear on her quest for justice and revenge. This telenovela starring Michelle Dede, Uzoamaka Aniunoh, Obehi Aburime, Uche Mac-Auley, and Ian Wordi will air every weeknight from 8:30pm on AM Showcase (DStv Channel 151).
On the other hand, Dilemma follows the lives of two estranged lovers – Kaineto and Kanan. After years of separation, they find their way back to each other and have to deal with a history they would both rather forget. Love leads them back together, but it may not be enough to conquer all the challenges they will have to face, as the Anolues would simply never let their daughter marry the help.
Dilemma will air every weeknight at 8pm on AM Showcase (DStv Channel 151). It stars some of the finest talents in Nollywood like Shan George and Bob Manuel-Udokwu, and new faces like Treasure Obasi and Vine Ogulu. It also features BBNaija stars, Neo Akpofure and Daniel ‘Sir Dee’ Atteh.
The Rishantes follows the story of a family whose biggest enemy is the enemy within. The conflict between them threatens to tear them apart until they realize that they are the targets of a bigger enemy and he is closing in on them. What remains to be seen is if they have enough to conquer their enemies. This airs weeknights from 8pm on AM Urban (DStv Channel 153).
