It was all glitz and glam when Maisha Magic Bongo (in association with Multi
Choice Tanzania) unveiled their exciting line-up of new locally produced Swahili content at a soiree held at Mlimani City, Dar Es Salam, on Friday November 4th, 2016.
This momentous occasion was not only to introduce all the latest amazing work from local producers, but also served as a relaunch of this wonderful channel that is purely aimed at the Tanzanian Swahili viewer. The content showcased included the airing of the first episode of the must-watch series “Huba”, teasers from Swahili-dubbed Indian production “Doli”, wedding extravaganza show “Harusi Yetu” and other teasers which left the guests with an appetite for more viewing pleasure coming to DStv Channel 160.

According to the head of Maisha Magic Bongo Barbara Kambogi, this is the first time in Tanzania that DStv has worked with local producers. “It is such a pleasure for us to be able to bring this channel to our Swahili audiences, and what better way to celebrate the channel’s first anniversary than with this wonderful contribution from our very own producers. For Maisha Magic Bongo, this is just the beginning because we are fully committed to commissioning even more local content going forward; and we want to open more doors for our local producers and actors to be able to shine right here at home and beyond.”
The guest of honor who thanked Maisha Bongo for this milestone concluded “We are happy that this is channel is giving our locals the opportunity not only to showcase their talents, but to encourage other upcoming producers to keep telling our local stories in an artistic way that only they can master.”
