“Kariya”, a television series premiered on Africa Magic Hausa on Friday. Dr Busola Tejumola, Executive Head of Content and West Africa Channels, MultiChoice, disclosed this in a statement on Friday in Lagos.
Tejumola said after the premiere, new episodes would air every Friday to Sunday at 8.00p.m., exclusively on Africa Magic Hausa- DStv channel 156 and GOtv channel 3.
“Kariya is a series that entertains and delves into the intricacies of human relationships and the unexpected twists that life throws our way.
“The show is Africa Magic’s testament to delivering content that resonates with our diverse and discerning audience.
“Kariya allows us to tell the most intimate love story in the most unexpected way possible while celebrating our local languages and customs.
“With Kariya, viewers can expect an unforgettable journey that challenges our notions of trust, loyalty, and the choices we make when faced with chaos.
“It is a story that will keep you eagerly anticipating each new episode,” she said.
Tejumola noted that Kariya is a riveting series that revolves around the lives of Tariq and Hadiza Al-Hassan, renowned Islamic relationship counsellors, whose world teeters on the edge of collapse.
She said Tariq’s infidelity threatens to escalate into a public scandal as it jeopardises their marriage and career, as they have made a name for themselves by helping other couples in trouble and being the ultimate ‘couple goal’.
According to her, Tariq’s mistress, Zara, makes a messy situation even more difficult as she threatens to spill the couple’s dirty secrets on social media and announce that she is carrying Tariq’s baby.
She said Zara leverages the child as a powerful weapon, and her vow to expose their lengthy affair on social media sets off a relentless game of blackmail and deception.
“Just like the saying goes, when it rains, it pours, and that indeed becomes the case for the Alhassans as chaos strikes when armed individuals fleeing the police invade their home.
“Tariq and Hadiza find themselves bound and silenced, making survival their sole objective.
“As tension mounts and hidden truths come to light, Kariya becomes an exhilarating exploration of choices and the hope that emerges even in the darkest times,” she said.
