Shuga: Love, Sex, Money

“It’s the Story of bright lives, entwining and colliding. It’s the story of morning afters and sweet departures-and the indelible marks we leave on each other.

 

Shuga is a TV series that was first aired in November 2009 on MTV Base as part of an initiative duped MTV Staying Alive Ignite!. Set in Nairobi, Kenya, and back for a hotly anticipated second series, Shuga is a hard-hitting drama that follows the lives, loves and ambitions of a group of young people whose bright lives and fabulous futures are balanced on a knife edge due to their love of living dangerously. Season one comprised three episodes that followed the lives and love of a group of young students whose bright lives and fabulous future were balanced on a knife edge due to their love of risk and danger. This season told the story of a modern girl Ayira who knew what she wanted and how to get it. She developed passion with an older man at the expense of a longtime lover Ty. This season also highlighted the life of other two lovers Virginia and Leo who had various obstacles in their relationships but they were determined to make it work. This season also featured Cameo appearances of Madtraxx, P-Unit, Nonini, Nameless, Juliani, Jimmy Gate and Dj Adrian.

Also included in this post is  the entire season 2  of the series which follows up on the lessons learned in season one by returning cast members and new adventures and stories from new faces introduced in the series.  The experiences of the characters are real everyday occurrences which are relatable no matter where one comes from and as such, SHUGA makes for an exciting watch for national and international audiences.
