Some of our favourite shows have received fame on social media – sometimes for all the right, hilarious reasons. And one thing is for sure: these shows are so addictive that once the buzz dies down for this week’s episode, new hype is bound to follow the next instalment.
We’re sure a couple of shows are already coming to mind; some you follow and love, and others you may have only heard about and are yet to watch. Let’s look at some of the fantastic shows on DStv that regularly make Twitter’s trending page.
An African telenovela
Season after season, the Mackenzie family from Selina still create a buzz on Twitter. Viewers can’t get enough of the intense and gripping storyline of this telenovela as our favourite Kenyan protagonist goes to desperate measures, only to give in to family pressure. See what all the hype is about Mondays to Fridays at 19:30 CAT on Maisha Magic East, DStv Channel 158. And use #Selina to keep up to date on all the show-related gossip.
Matches made in heaven
Oh boy, Date My Family Tanzania has this one created a stir! From mismatched connections to family members flirting with the potential suitor, it’s no wonder that this reality show continues to trend as much as it does. The memes are priceless, the one-liners are limitless, and the buzz is endless. Catch all the drama, embarrassment, and laughter every Thursday at 17:30 CAT on Maisha Magic Bongo, DStv Channel 160. #DateMyFamilyTanzania is the hashtag to search for here.
Nigeria’s next singing sensation
We all think we can plan weddings better – and people are quick to point this out on Twitter. From cringe-worthy décor to the over-the-top photoshoots, weddings on Our Perfect Wedding will go down in history. Who can forget all the catering mishaps, the bridesmaid dresses, and high hairlines – this is what reality TV is all about! Catch all nine seasons on Showmax. Can’t get enough? Take to Twitter and search for #OurPerfectWedding or #OPW for more wedding drama.
Nigeria’s next singing sensation
We love to support our fellow African talent, and Twitter is the perfect platform to share your opinions with the world. Who remembers Francis’s angelic voice, the judges’ initial reaction to the first lot of auditions, the tear-jerking performances, and the dreaded eliminations? Don’t only follow who is in and out of #NigerianIdol on socials – catch the live-action Sundays at 20:00 CAT on Africa Magic Family, DStv Channel 154.
One thing fans rave about is Adey’s ultimate portrayal of love. The plotline is so relatable because not all families are perfect and extend past bloodlines to friends, neighbours, colleagues and everyone in between. Watch how the lives of two families tied to a 17-year-old-girl unfold Monday to Friday at 19:00 CAT on Abol TV, DStv Channel 146. #Adey is your go-to hashtag for more information on this trending show.
When will the drama ever end? That’s what most fans are wondering. Filled with suspense, mystery and anticipation for the next scene, Twitter is buzzing with which Kenyan character’s secret will be exposed next. Get in on the action from #Kovu on Monday to Friday at 17:30 CAT on Maisha Magic Plus, DStv Channel 163.
