As part of the drive to curb the spread of HIV as well as create awareness for AIDS, the MTV Staying Alive Foundation and MTV Base Africa is back again with its lifestyle based TV series – Shuga.
This time, Shuga is shot in Nigeria and this season consists of 8 episodes which very correctly captures the essence of a lot of young people today. Commenting on what they hope to achieve with Shuga, the producers said: “What we hope to achieve is to get young people to talk about sex.”
Shuga Naija is directed by Biyi Bandele.
