Whatever men can do, women can, too – and better. Three women, determined to succeed in life, refuse to be boxed into professions stereotyped by Ghanaian norms as being the preserve of men. People gawk and stare as one becomes a rider of a commercial tricycle, locally called ‘pragya’ or ‘kɛkɛ’; the other takes up motorbike repairs; and the third settles for carpentry. The trio is constantly belittled and laughed at, but slowly, hard work and persistence earns them validation, self-esteem, and respect from everyone around them. Will their modest professional pursuits help shatter the glass ceiling?
Dentaah employs humour and a lot of satire to mirror the struggles of the Ghanaian society with accepting its women for what and who they are.

Headed by Chief Inspector Pupulampo, SEVSU tackles mind-bogglingly debauched sexual offenses in every episode – all the while hunting for Aku’s killer.

Tony is a respected radio presenter who believes in playing it by the book. He also doubles as Programmes Director for Uptown FM, believes firmly in press freedom and prides himself in not descending to, in his words, "the low standards of the media space polluted by social media bloggers and uneducated journalists".
Even when the listenership of Uptown FM drops, he stubbornly opts for the straight and narrow way, much to the chagrin of his colleagues and bosses. The tide eventually turns, but not in the direction Tony anticipates. He finds himself thrust into a scandal as he falls in love with Marie, soon-to-be bride of Reginald Mensah, son of the powerful politician Raymond Mensah. With just two weeks to this big society wedding, Raymond goes all out to punish Tony.
The public humiliation for the radio star is deep, forcing him to go under the radar for months. When he emerges, Tony gets a new gig at Radio Pride – where he plots his revenge.
Follow Tony’s fall from grace and his subsequent redemption in Dirty Laundry from 7 November at 9:00pm.
Airing Mondays – Fridays, 8:30pm

Airing Saturdays, 6:00pm
It is not only about the locations chosen for the shoots. It is not only about the sports personalities being interviewed. Heck, it is not only about the production quality – which is very good. But there’s something that makes this sporting travelogue just…tick.
The host, Gary Al-Smith, hops around picturesque European cities, making African sports personalities feel at home to speak about their inspirational life stories, most of which are relatable grass-to-grace stories.
However, each episode of Star Connect manages to be a combination of rigorous questioning (in the seriousness of the well-researched interview questions), glam (in the sheer range of stunning homes and opulence), and Fast & Furious (you don’t often see the new Ford EVOS racing a Lamborghini Veryron on the streets of Accra). And, it’s very well produced.
You don’t want to miss it for all the fufu on a Saturday evening.
Wow, what a month of pleasurable TV viewing November promises to be! Do not miss these engaging offerings Akwaaba Magic Abusua has, all on DStv channel 149 and GOtv channel 101.
