Busola Tejumola, Executive Director, West Africa Content and Channels, MultiChoice Nigeria, explained that “The Rishantes and the (Japa) movement will take our viewers on an emotional roller coaster as they are immersed in the lives of characters, their relationships and their different journeys.

“Every plot, twist and suspense will keep viewers across Africa on the edge of their seat as they follow the drama and connect with the characters. We are excited about these new series, and we are sure our viewers will be entertained by the stellar cast and excellent storytelling we are known for.

“MultiChoice, Africa’s leading provider of authentic, premium African stories, has continued to prove itself as the premier destination for high-profile shows.

“From late October to November, it offers a full range of amazing content to delight viewers. Programming will begin with the premiere of ‘Turn Up Friday’ on October 29 at 9:30 p.m. and “Owambe Saturday” from October 30 at 9 p.m. both on AM Family (DStv channel 154 and GOtv channel 2).

“Then they have the perfect new month gift for viewers with ‘The Rishantes’ and ‘Movement Japa’.”

The Rishantes follow the wealthy Rishante family played by Mofe Duncan, Chisom Agoaiweke and Ummi Baba Ahmed. The Rishante family members seem to have power, wealth, and even romance. But beneath the surface, certain underlying powers and events could lead the family to a cataclysmic end.

Their supposedly happy life is filled with discord and conflict within the family that they must resolve to face the greatest enemy that threatens to tear them apart. Whether or not they will win the most important battles remains to be seen.

The Rishantes will air every weeknight starting Monday, November 1, 2021 at 8 p.m. on Africa Magic Urban (DStv Channel 153). GOtv customers can also watch this series on a new package, GOtv SUPA, which will launch on Monday, November 1, 2021.

“Movement Japa” follows three graduates as they struggle to leave Nigeria in search of greener pastures. The dramatic and hilarious story stars Gideon Okeke, Shasnay ​​Okawa and Sambasa Nzeribe. He speaks the heavy truth that many unemployed graduates in Nigeria can relate to. The show will air on Mondays starting Monday, November 1, 2021 at 9 p.m. on Africa Magic Showcase (DStv Channel 151).

Executive producer of The Rishantes, Dimbo Atiya has explained why he thinks Nigerians will connect with the Rishante family during the premiere.

He said: “On Rishante, we focus on the strength of staying together as a family. This is especially important at times like this in this country where everyone is struggling to survive.

“There is always this support system when you come back into the family structure. For us, it was a very important moment to tell a very beautiful family story. And of course, for Africa Magic, which is a family resort. Everything they do is about family.

The all-new series can be watched on the go via the DStv app on multiple devices at no additional cost. The app is available for download from Apple and Google Play stores.

Both series will also be available on the online streaming service, Showmax, which is open to DStv Premium customers at no additional cost. DStv Compact Plus customers can get Showmax for half price.
