STUDIO 53 (article first published : 2005-03-3)

Studio 53, M-Net's stylish African lifestyle program, will debut in a new weekly Open Time slot from March 9 at 17h00. The show was previously on M-Net on Sundays at 10h30.

Studio 53 proves that African art, travel, fashion and entertainment are as popular as ever. This uniquely-African lifestyle program - which recently celebrated its first anniversary - has spent the last twelve months on the move, sharing the African experience with DStv viewers.

Along the way Studio 53 has profiled the continent's leading personalities, experienced Africa's vast diversity and visited over 20 African countries. On the travel itinerary are stops in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, South Africa, St. Helena, the Seychelles, Morocco, Zambia, Mozambique, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Swaziland, Nigeria, Malawi and Angola.

Anchors for the in-studio roles are former Big Brother Africa contestant Gaetano Kagwa (Uganda) and South African beauty Rosie Motene.

Studio 53's team of intrepid field reporters are: Katia Muchanga (Mozambique), Morning-Star Rosario (Namibia), Fareed Khimani (Kenya), Dennis Tau (South Africa), Chishala Chitoshi (Zambia), Blakofe (Ghana), Mapumba Cilombo (DRC), Sister Fire (Malawi), Sitandwa Mmopi (Botswana) and Bobby Gatheca (Tanzania).

The show on March 9 at 17h00 will feature the Sauti za Busara festival in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania; the Miss Tourism World Final in Zimbabwe; wine maker Nomonde Kubheka from Soweto, in Johannesburg; a virtual mini tour of Tunisia and young violinist, Caitlin Papier from Zambia.
