BET Africa is turning up our TV screens with the introduction of their first ever original drama series titled, ISONO (The Sin).
ISONO is based on the story of a dysfunctional family and a heroic son who searches within himself for the strength to stand up against a powerful and evil matriarch who will stop at nothing to serve her own needs.
Expect a star-studded Southern African cast including the likes of Nthati Moshesh and Rami Chuene who wil bring the hot spicy sass we need to this new African telenovela.
Moshesh will play the protagonist and the anti-hero Mary, a ruthless woman of faith, while Chuene will star as Jumima aka Juju; an eccentric gossipmonger who often buys into occasional conspiracy theories and gets the wrong end of the stick by making odd connections and pronouncements.
Monde Twala, senior vice president and general manager in editorial for ViacomCBS Networks Africa, said in a statement: “Africans are amongst the most passionate and dedicated viewers of daily dramas. We are proud to be able to contribute to this rich culture of authentic local storytelling.”
ISONO will air across the motherland on BET Africa (DStv Channel 129) daily from 27 July 2020 at 21.30 CAT. Here is what expect:
It is nice to see that BET Africa is investing in local talent. Last year, the network introduced Black Tax (a sitcom) and also Boity’s very first reality show Own Your Throne. Hopefully there will be more television content produced not just in Mzansi but across the African continent.
