Shuga and Intersexions

Shuga is a bit old, since it was done in 2009 but i love it. Loved it enough to look for it and include it in my ILP (individualized learning plan) for my pathway (school related) stuff. It's a drama set in Kenya pretty much about college students engaging in risky sexual behavior, getting tested for HIV and stuff. It's really good. I loved the Kenya actors and actresses most of whom had never acted before. Beautiful people, beautiful accents. I almost wanted to be Kenyan....almost :)

*I wonder if people from other African countries see Nigerians, hear our accents and think we are cool.
(Well, i heard Ghanaians hate us, regardless :) I won't lie, i thought these Kenyans were cool. Loved their accents!!!!

Shuga Episode 1 from mtv staying alive on Vimeo.

Find the rest of the videos HERE.

Then there's this new series set in South Africa (i think) called Intersexions. The byline on the shows website is "Do you know your lover's lovers". I first read about it from a blog, then Myne mentioned it on this blog but i haven't gotten a chance to watch it yet but i heard it's really good. I can't wait for this semester to be over so i can settle down to watch it. I'm really looking forward to that.

Check out the first part

Read more about it HERE

Both shows are about HIV by the way. In case i haven't mentioned it before, i'm all about raising awareness about HIV and hopefully playing a small role in preventing it. That's the main focus of my pathway.

Question of the day: If you weren't Nigerian, which other African country would you be from? It's so sad how little i know about other African countries. "Do you speak swahili". Say what? Oh! I don't even know what countries Swahili is spoken in, neither will i recognize it if it is being spoken. I think it's spoken in Kenya though.

*I have gotten tired of telling people Africa is not one single country and i don't speak African and i especially don't speak Nigerian!!!!!!!


  1. Love the fact that you are raising awareness about HIV.Great idea...
    in answer to the question,i think i would want to be from Zimbabwe lol there this girl in my school from there and i like her accent maybe i would change after i watch shuga..haha

  2. I've watched Shuga before somewhere on blogs-ville can't remember whose blog though and I liked it.

    I loveeeee Swahili, I think its the most sexiest African language. Yeah its spoken by Kenyans and Tanzanians, some people from Uganda understand it too.

  3. good on u, ur doing great stuff, trust me every lil extra counts. thumbs up

  4. lol swahili is spoken in eastern african countries. And most african countries beef nigeria! Thanks to big brother africa, i know they make fun of our accent and think we are fraudsters :p
    if i wasnt from Nigeria, i guess i'll choose zimbabwe cos they are very educated and their english accent is very clear and coherent. I started watching intersexions, then i got bored lol.. u may like it though.

  5. More awareness is always good! Well done. Lol at speaking Nigerian haha. I can't imagine being from anywhere other than Nigeria oh. Maybe Ghana?? Dunno. I didn't know Ghana didn't like us, i've only heard of South Africans having beef with us hehe


  6. Question of the day: If you weren't Nigerian, which other African country would you be from?:

    Easy! Ethiopia! Very very cultured! Beauuuuuuuuuutiful ladies! Greatttttttt food!

  7. Nice videos. love the BLACK girl on shuga...she's BLACK sha o.

  8. Thanks for sharing Sting. I am loving those plays. Talk of class and clarity. Never knew Kenya was so pretty.
    I am almost ashamed for Nollywood. I would want to be Kenyan :). I am as black as them at least.
