Have you seen Shuga yet? The amazingly well-made MTV produced Kenyan series on love, sex, sexuality, youth culture and all things connected? Well, here I’ve gathered all episodes of Shuga for your viewing pleasure. They are up to date and I will make necessary edits when/if newer episodes are released.
TW: rape for episode 2
There are so many good things about Shuga. And I’m not talking about how stunningly gorgeous the leading ladies, Ayria and Vio are or the awesome soundtrack of the second season. Shuga talks about issues that were largely ignored when I was growing up in Abuja and still remain largely ignored today. And not only in Nigeria but in other African countries.
I think it’s best, or a very good choice, that the series is set in Kenya. I have previously written on my frustrations with how Nigerian media, Nollywood etc, portray sex, sexuality and rape. Shuga is definitely more balanced.
I really don’t have anything constructive to say, just watch and enjoy the series please.
ETA: I’ve embedded the latest episodes! Season two is now officially complete, I sincerely hope there’s a season three.
