The most exciting season in Big Brother Naija history, Level Up, has finally ended with Phyna taking home the ₦100 million grand prize. After watching the youngest set of 28 housemates for ten weeks, it’s no surprise that many may struggle to enjoy TV without their faves again.
Still, DStv has you covered with plenty of TV shows, games, and series. So, here are a few films to get you out of your BBNaija blue and into the most premium entertainment:
1. Covenant and Itura
Two brand new Africa Magic original series premiered on Monday. COVENANT tells the story of three seeming strangers on a perilous journey that will change them in ways they cannot imagine. Their journey takes us through their lives as they discover truths that unite them, rock their worlds and ultimately lead them to take vows and make the greatest sacrifice possible through a Covenant.
On the other hand, ITURA is an epic drama series about the nascent kingdom of Ibaokuta and its struggle for peace. The beloved king, Jagungbade, desires an empire based on equality, love, justice, prosperity and peace.
