Speaking during the event, Rinaldi Jamugisa, PR and Communications Manager of MultiChoice Uganda, remarked that the two shows have the creative and visual fabric to deliver great entertainment to viewers.
He explained, “As part of our hyper-local strategy, we aim to deliver world-class entertainment created by Africans for Africa that is relatable, based on societal and cultural nuances that bring us together, and give us an identity.”
“We continue to invest in bringing content that adds value to our viewers, enriching their lives with stories that resonate with their day-to-day lives, through new and refreshing content that is family-friendly,” Jamugisa revealed.
Collins Bareija Magezi (Emeka) also known as the Romantic Mukiga, the show host, Take Me Back, said it was inspired by the need for a reality show centred around mending broken relationships. “We live in a broken society that needs healing, and with Take Me Back, people with past hurt get to reconcile with their lovers, friends, and family and I thank MultiChoice for the platform to broadcast this and show what’s possible for people looking to reconcile,” Bareija noted.
In her remarks, Anne Kansiime, the lead character in KanSeeMe said she was excited by the opportunity to share her life with viewers. “Culture and society have for so long driven us by the notion to keep our lives secret for different reasons,” adding, “With support from my family, we started on the journey to open up ourselves, our lives, the ups and downs, hurts, joys we experience, and it has been quite a tough yet very fulfilling journey to see what the show has turned out to be in the episodes we have shot so far.”
“I wish to express my gratitude to MultiChoice Uganda for the opportunity to tell my story boldly through Pearl Magic Prime,” she added.
The Local content manager of MultiChoice Uganda, Brian Mulondo, revealed that the shows are part of the business’s broader strategy to tell the African story.
“Take Me Back and Kanseeme are expected to be viewer’s favourites as they bring the rawness of what life is about while speaking into what we all go through or at least witness those around us experiencing,” he noted.
Mulondo remarked, “Anne and Emeka are definitely talented creatives with whom we are proud to work to bring exciting and thrilling content to viewer’s screens this year, in addition to others we have commissioned in the last few years.”
MutiChoice Uganda has in the last 1 month demonstrated a great investment in the Uganda film industry with the launch of new and exciting shows like Urban life, Juniors Drama Club, in addition to Wakaliwood.
