Having debuted just two months ago, M-Net’s Southern African focussed general entertainment channel Zambezi Magic on DStv channel 160 continues to search for and identify relevant new titles that it can add to its developing content line-up.

Aiming to consolidate on its promising start, the channel unveiled an exciting slate of new programming that it recently acquired to ensure that its viewers across the region stay tuned in.

Speaking on the channel’s origin and strategy for the future, Zambezi Magic Channel Head Addiel Dzinoreva said whilst the channel is still in its early days, its aims are in sync with those of M-Net’s more established African channels and in line with M-Net’s long history in sub-Saharan Africa.

“Having always championed the need to showcase African content, we appreciate the demand for a channel like Zambezi Magic as there are series, movies, music, documentaries and more from Southern Africa that need to be screened to a wider regional audience. Now as we enter month 3 of the channel’s life, we are more convinced than ever that Zambezi Magic has the potential to grow in line with audience expectations so we plan to continue evolving to meet this goal,” said Addiel Dzinoreva.

Among the new acquisitions set to appear on the channel from October are the Zambezi News, Tonight with Zororois, Kumwesu, Situationsis- a sketch comedy, Malawian drama series, Love Gamesis also make a date for the must-watch music shows from Zambia and Zimbabwe (Top 10 Zed & Zim).

Also on Zambezi Magic channel is a host of great movies to enjoy as well.  Movie fans can also tune in for Maria’s Vision, a Zimbabwean diaspora story about love and deception shot in the United Kingdom.

Meanwhile Playing Warriors explores the conflict that exists between notions of traditional and modern lifestyles and how a group of female friends navigate this.

In addition, continuing on Zambezi Magic are the hit dramas Isidingo, Generations and Muvhango.
