The channel boasts a vibrant roster of headlining female talent from across the continent, namely Pearl Umeh (Nigeria), Patricia Kihoro, Foi Wambui (Kenya), Anele Mdoda, Mbali Nkosi and Anele Zondo (South Africa).
Of course, the TV series that we’re most excited about are the cooking shows!
Making the Menu
In each episode of this proudly Kenyan series, two food bloggers create a bespoke meal for a popular local eatery, with the restaurateur deciding which dish deserves a space on the menu. Viewers will also enjoy a journey through Nairobi’s cultural attractions and the city’s sights, sounds and traditions as the contestants look for inspiration outside the kitchen.
Hoot, Cook, Go
A vibrant food culture, particular palates and often curious cultures are put to the test as three teams compete for a prize in this show. Each team is given a chance to show off exactly who they are with a plate of food that they have only an hour to prepare. When they hear the hooter, it’s time to get in the car and move on to the next team’s house.
Ehe! It’s a Match: Zambia
Someone who has always wanted to introduce two of their single friends to one another gets the chance to do so. They transform their kitchen into a pop-up restaurant and host a date for their two single friends in their house. Will the friend be successful in making a match?
