One of my favourite TV shows - and arguably one of the best television programs to be produced on the continent in the past ten years - MTV Shuga is now on tumblr!

For those of you that need a brief introduction to the series that’s currently in it’s third season, MTV Shuga is a hard-hitting drama that follows the lives of young people in various urban African settings - first Nairobi and now Lagos - as they experience the highs and lows of love, sex, relationships, family, hustle and ambition.

Oh, and it’s also the show that broadcast the talents of Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong’o to households across Africa.
