Local artistes enjoy coverage on DStv

HARARE - While over the years Zimbabweans have complained that their content was not making it on any DStv platforms, the past few months have witnessed a number of positives.

Since the introduction of Zambezi Magic, the channel that focuses on southern African content there have been fewer complaints. The channel hosts Trace Africa programme which focuses on African music.

Tocky Vibes, Jah Prayzah, Soul Jah Love, Queen Vee, Ammara Brown, Tytan and others have had their songs on rotation, even landing spots in the Trace Africa Weekly Chart Show.

Last week, Jah Prayzah had another programme Focus On dedicated to him, hence giving him the much-needed exposure in Africa and the world.

Focus On is a show that looks at the musician’s career profile so as to make the audience appreciate them more.

Local artistes have to up their game and produce quality content which meets the channels’ requirements as more related programmes are being introduced.

Just last week, a new talk show The Arthur Evans starting with a 13-week first season was launched on DStv’s Zambezi Magic, giving regional exposure to celebrities and other guests.

Publicity and public relations manager of MultiChoice Zimbabwe Liz Dziva said the show was launched on November 5 and is being hosted by a well-known Zimbabwean presenter and MC, Arthur Evans.

“It will have an opening season of 13 episodes and will slot in at 6.30pm each Saturday, and this is a very exciting development as it adds further Zimbabwean content to this channel, created to throw the spotlight on southern Africa,” she said.

“This is a show that will profile Zimbabwean and African trendsetters, visionaries, pioneers, trailblazers and people who have defied the odds to get to the top.”

Guests who will appear include Oliver Mtukudzi, Ammara Brown, Sandra Ndebele, Carl Joshua Ncube, Jeys Marabini and Munya Chidzonga among others.

“Zambezi Magic is a channel that also focuses on content from Zimbabwe and the introduction of shows like these will reinforce its mission to do so,” Dziva said.

Zimbabwean content featured in the recent past includes shows like Wedding Diaries, Makosi Today, Celebrate Life, Tonight with Zororo, Wine and Dine with Tumi and Zambezi News among others.
