The sixth season of TV drama MTV Shuga Naija will air from March 6, with production returning to Nigeria.
The last run of the show was produced in South Africa but the new episodes will be filmed in Lagos as well as northern Nigeria.
New cast members include Rahama Sadau, Uzoamaka Aniunoh and Abayomi Alvin, while four actors from previous seasons – Timini Egbuson, Jemima Osunde, Sharon Ezeamaka and Olumide Oworu – will return.
MTV Shuga Naija S6 will follow a new storyline which the producers claim will be more action-packed than before.
The drama focuses on issues that affect African youth, such as family planning, contraception, HIV prevention, sexual education and gender-based violence.
The first episode of the new season will air at 22.00 on MTV Base, DSTV channel 322, on March 6. A repeat broadcast will air on Sunday March 10 in the same slot. It will also air on STV at 22.30 on March 7 and on NTA at 23.00 on March 10.
