According to Biola Adekanbi, Managing Director, MNet Africa, “Magic World is a channel we are especially proud of because, as the name suggests, it does not cater to one need; it provides a potpourri of entertainment and magic to our viewers. There’s something in it for everyone: from sports to music, to series and even to local movies”.
Magic World, available on channel 112 on DStv, is a general entertainment channel packaged by M-Net that includes African movies and series programming. It also provides a variety of programming covering local productions in movies, sports and series genres.
This month, Magic World will bring to the screen all the home-grown soap operas Africa has come to love. Families could connect with the family centric soap opera, Edge of Paradise, which tells the tale of a contemporary Nigerian family, chronicling their triumphs and losses, pain and gain, moments of quiet satisfaction and bleak times when all seemed lost.
Also available to subscribers is the witty and fast-paced Doctor’s Quarters, where viewers can share the joy, pain and excitement of young doctors living together and all the drama it entails. These three soap operas boast of accomplished actors like Kate Henshaw-Nuttal, Norbert Young, Caroline King, Bukola Ajayi, Ashionye and many more.
Also showing on Magic World this month is Studio 53, the Africa lifestyle programme that showcases the best of African fashion, travel, food, décor, music, movies and more. Other interesting shows include the intriguing dance reality show, Let’s Dance; the tempting Temptation Nigeria; Hi-5 for children; the motivational Starting Over; and lots of African movies.
