MultiChoice Kenya has announced that it will toast to the growth of Kenyan television content at the first ever Maisha Magic Festival. The festival will take place at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC).
More than 14 musicians have been confirmed to perform at the upcoming Maisha Magic Festival 2019 scheduled for May 4th at the KICC Courtyard.
The musical line-up includes Khaligraph Jones, Mercy Masika, Naiboi, Bahati, Elani, Hart the Band, Jabidii, Bensoul, Moji Short Baba, DJ Ruff and DJ Joe Mfalme. Actors from much-loved Maisha Magic East shows like Varshita, Selina, Hullabaloo Estate, Our Perfect Wedding and Nyanya Rukia will also make special appearances.
Speaking at the launch of the Maisha Magic Festival, MNET’s Channel Director of East and Southern channels Timothy Okwaro highlighted Maisha Magic’s priority to provide 100% local content to its viewers.
Over the last three years, Maisha Magic East on DStv has rolled out Kenyan TV shows on its platform which have since gained much popularity with the audience.
Some of the TV programs on the channel include the award-winning series Selina that won the Best TV Drama series award at the Kalasha 2018 Awards, Pete – a telenovela produced in Kenya and Maza – a locally-produced Swahili soapie.
