Story from: YoMzansi – YMZ

MTV Shuga is back for its fifth season and good news is that the drama series will be filmed right here in South Africa for the first time.

Fusing sexual and other public health messaging with world class storytelling and appealing, believable characters, the exciting return of MTV Shuga will be filmed in Johannesburg in a few months by Quizzical Pictures (known for dramas like Rhythm City, Hopeville, Intersexions and Umlilo).

The new season will include South African actress Mohau Mokoatle as ‘Bongi’ in the role of schoolgirl / singer and the story-lines will focus on adolescent girls, their vulnerability to HIV infection and unplanned pregnancy.

“‘MTV Shuga’ comes at a time when the South African Government had resolved to implement a 360-mass media behaviour change campaign on HIV Prevention and Sexuality Education Programme. We are pleased with the overwhelming support received from the MTV Stay Alive Foundation and its partners for this vision, and together we will achieve the ambitious objectives we have set ourselves as Basic Education’s contribution to a complete country response through ‘MTV Shuga.’” said Mrs. Angie Motshekga, Minister of Basic Education.

Stay tuned to find out more about what’s coming up for all new Season 5.
