Maisha Magic East, formerly Maisha Magic Swahili, will have content from the entire East Africa region in languages including Kiswahili, Sheng, Kikuyu, Luganda and English for all viewers in the region.

However, we aim to build on the success of this channel for the entire region by bringing together the best of East African talent under one umbrella and give our viewers more access to their favourite shows and exceptional talent," says MultiChoice East Africa Regional Director, Stephen Isaboke.

With entertainment programming including comedy, music, lifestyle, telenovelas and films, Maisha Magic East will also have exciting shows customised for each country.



These regional blocks will range from entertaining Bongo films and Swahili series, featuring the biggest names in Tanzania for the Tanzanian audiences, a variety of Luganda comedy and drama shows for the Ugandan fans and exclusive Kenyan films as well as exciting and entertaining drama and comedy shows for Kenya.

With more homegrown programming available, subscribers can still watch Side By Side, Once In A Million, Tujuane Plus, Vitimbi and original movies like Don’t Mess With Kansiime and Utandu.
