Smiley Faces

Up until 1995 Zambia had only one TV channel and little access to top class international content. That changed when Multichoice burst onto their screens in 1995. The new offering was embraced with open arms.

Then in 1999 the new DSTV package was launched and with it came a host of new reality shows. Zambians covered themselves in glory when Cherise won the first Big Brother Africa – they were also top contenders in Face of Africa, Project Fame and Stand Up Zambia.

But the Multichoice does much more than just create celebrities. They create employment and opportunities through their distribution network. They make a difference in the lives of orphans and schoolchildren through their CSI initiatives and they have adopted a children’s ward at the local teaching hospital in Lusaka.

Smiles is their game and they have created a buzz both on and off the field with their sports coverage. Local league matches are now televised with Zambian crews behind the cameras and in the OB vans.

Recently they threw a lifeline to the local industry by setting up a new local content channel – Zambezi magic. For film makers, actors and TV producers it’s the opportunity they have been waiting for.

We celebrate 20 years of adding smiles and touching lives. We celebrate Multichoice in Zambia.

Tune into the Zambia Smiles documentary this Friday at 20:30CAT on Zambezi Magic, DStv channel 160
