DStv launches first original Pan-African lifestyle channel

LIFESTYLES across Africa will be thrown into focus when a new channel —Honey — launches on DStv this month.
Publicity and public relations manager of MultiChoice Zimbabwe Liz Dziva said the channel would showcase the diversity of life across the continent.

‘‘It’s a channel made in Africa by Africans for Africans,’’ she said.

Honey is produced for DStv by Media24 and will show on channel 173 on DStv Compact, Compact Plus and Premium packages.

‘‘The content will be as diverse as Africa itself, with everything from lifestyle, food and relationships to weddings, personal development and reality shows,’’ said Dziva.

Female voices will get a prominent position on the channel, and Zimbabwean presenter Davina Mavuwa will join four other women from around the continent on one show, The Buzz, in which the five hosts examine viewers’ issues and problems, each giving a personal perspective.

Programmes will be sourced from across the continent and early in the channel’s life highlights will include such themed shows as Pastors’ Wives from South Africa, reality show Love Swap from Nigeria, Making The Menu from Kenya and Ehe, It’s A Match from Zambia.

‘‘We look forward to all this diversity of content and sources,’’ said Dziva.

From March 19 a new continental reality show titled The Next Big Trender will appear on Honey, with a search for Africa’s up-and-coming social influencers.
