New Swahili Telenovela ‘Selina’ Premieres on DStv and GOtv

Maisha Magic East is set to roll out another riveting Swahili Telenovela, Selina, which is guaranteed to captivate its viewers.

Selina, which makes its debut on Maisha Magic East on Monday, 15th January 2018, is a classic Cinderella-like story that combines the romance of the fairy-tale with the relevant social issue of educating the girl child.

“The new show demonstrates Maisha Magic East’s commitment to providing premium local content for viewers on both DStv and GOtv. Maisha Magic East, is the only channel showcasing 100 percent authentic local content and it continues to provide a ready market for the growing entertainment industry,” said Margaret Mathore, Head of Maisha Magic East.

“We strive to deliver value to our customers by making great entertainment more accessible. We invested half a billion shillings to go towards the production of local content and I am very proud to announce that Selina is now the 14th show launched so far, out of the 15 local shows we promised to launch in the year 2017/18,” said MultiChoice Kenya Corporate Affairs Manager, Philip Wahome.

The show depicts the life of Selina, a 119-year-old girl, who is taken to work in a wealthy city home by her two-faced rural stepmother, Kristina.

Kristina brainwashes Selina, convincing her to leave her family and education behind to work as a housemaid in order to support her family, her sickly father and her younger step-brother and sister.

Kristina is simply looking to make some easy money from Selina. All the drama unravels when Selina falls for the youngest son of the house where she is deployed to work.

Talent in the new series includes popular as well as upcoming local talent from the region – Pascal Tokodi, who stars as Nelson the rich, young boy who falls in love with Selina, played by Maisha Magic’s new talent discovery Celestine Gachohi.

Seasoned and award-winning stars Abel Amunga and Alex Khayo among others make for a riveting drama in this trail-blazing TV nugget.

Selina Ua La Jiji

Selina tag line in Swahili is Ua la kijijni, mwiba mjini loosely translated to mean an innocent village beauty that becomes the thorn and a curse in the city.

Selina will air every Monday – Friday at 7.30pm EAT on Maisha Magic East on DStv channel 158 and GOtv channel 4.
