John Ugbe, Managing Director, MultiChoice Nigeria, said Do-Good is a great example of his company’s ongoing partnership with the Nigerian entertainment industry, and “it expands our already impressive list of exciting and fun programming for viewers to choose from.”
Do-Good is the latest addition to the thrilling content line-up which recently launched on the various Africa Magic channels in 2015 including the telenovella, Hotel Majestic, and the popular late night talkshow, Highlites with IK.
