The apple of Mnet Africa’s eyes, Tinsel has achieved an unprecedented 3,500 episodes since it began running in 2008.

Speaking about the documentary,  titled “Through The Decades: A Tinsel Story,” Dr. Busola Tejumola, Executive Head of Content and West Africa Channels, MultiChoice had this to say:

“This show has maintained its status as one of Africa’s most successful drama series for about 14 years.

“This is not a small feat, and I believe our audience continues to tune in to watch the series every weekday because it shows you real life, real people, and everyday circumstances.

“It feels like people are generally living their lives on TV; we are indeed happy to hit the 3500th episode mark of this stellar series.

“At MultiChoice, we hope to continue growing and promoting local content and talents and expanding the boundaries of African film and television production as we have done all these years with Tinsel.”

“The documentary is a unique feature that highlights the journey of the trailblazer, Tinsel, through the eyes of its creators, stakeholders, cast, and crew as it celebrates its 15th season and 3500th episode.

“It will feature current and past cast members of the show, current and past MNET/Africa Magic stakeholders, the original content creator of Tinsel, and pioneer producers of the show.

“It will also have key industry icons like Joke Silva, Tade Ogidan, Tunde Kelani, Richard Mofe-Damijo and more,” she added.

The milestone episode is excepted to air after the documentary today on Thursday, December 22, 2022, on Africa Magic Showcase (DStv channel 151) and Family (DStv channel 154 and GOtv channel 2).
