African Cinema: Watch MTV Base ‘SHUGA Naija’ Episodes 1-4, Directed by Biyi Bandele

We introduced you to MTV Base’s SHUGA in 2012. During that time, many of our readers met Kenya’s Lupita Nyong’o, for the first time, who has now moved on to “wow” Hollywood. Now, check out the Shuga series focused on Nigeria. You will be glad to know and see that Ladybrille’s former music contributor Maria Okanrende, who subsequently moved to Nigeria and is a radio host in the country, plays one of the lead characters in the series. For someone who has never done any real acting, we think she did quite well.

The series is also directed by Biyi Bandele (Half of a Yellow Sun).
