CDxbOPjWgAAGk4l

ZEE World is an Indian/African television channel launched in February, 2015.  The channel is first of its kind to dub Indian shows to English for the African viewers.  It is currently available on DSTV Channel 166 and on GOTV Channel 24.  According to research, we found that Zee World has taken the place of Africa Magic in the hearts of full housewives and television lovers.  It is also said that the television channel which majorly shows movies is loved by children.

Programmes like The Promise, Laali, Saloni, Married Again and Destiny keep the women folk and children from gossiping and playing around.

ENCOMIUM Weekly spoke with some women on their views about the TV channel and if it has stopped them from watching Africa Magic.

 

MRS. BOLAJI SHOBIYE

Do you watch Zee World?

Yes, I do.

Why do you find Zee World interesting?

I love their movies.  I get to learn about their culture, marriage and even their language.  They don’t support nudity.  You can’t see them romancing, kissing, not to talk of sleeping with each other.   They are matured in acting.  I can’t compare them to Nollywood. The difference is clear.  They promote good morals.

Which do you prefer between Zee World and Africa Magic?

Zee World.

Which do you rather advice children to watch?

I allow my children watch Zee World because it is child friendly.  Like I said, there is no nudity, they don’t abuse each other.  Their movies are decent.

I will advise parents to discourage their children from watching Africa Magic.  They expose all manner of things that children should not watch.  Zee World is a matured station.

MRS. FELICIA AKINWALE

Do you watch Zee World?

Yes, I do.

Why do you find Zee World interesting?

I like their series.  They are unpredictable.  I enjoy the suspense also.  You will just be curious to see the end of the series.  Once you start watching it, you become an addicted fan of the programme.  You cannot see any naked woman in any of those series, despite the fact that they talk about love.  It is done in a decent and matured way.

Which do you prefer between Zee World and Africa Magic?

Zee World.

Which do you rather advice children to watch?

I will advise parents to encourage their children watch either Zee World or cartoon stations.  There are things children should not be exposed to.  Those robbery scenes, naked women and all that.

Zee World, of course.  The movies that are shown on Zee World are those which you can comfortably watch with your children and you are not afraid that they will show a place where a man and woman would kiss.  Apart from cartoon channels, I allow my children to watch Zee World. I also allow them watch Africa Magic and some comedy shows.

I find Zee World interesting because it is mostly about love story full of emotional, exciting and passionate scenes.  It passes good and interesting lessons.

Which do you prefer between Zee World and Africa Magic?

Africa Magic.

Which do you rather advice children to watch?

I will rather advice my children to watch Africa Magic because it looks real to me and it narrates more of Nigerian, African culture.  It seems more meaningful, real and you will be familiar with their story.  Just like what happened in our everyday activities.  You learn lesson from area of cultural inspiring norms and history of our origin.

Yes, I do.

It is a matured series, it doesn’t have profane words like some other series or movies.  It appeals to one’s fantasies.  No bogus storyline, no complexities in acting and it is highly entertaining.  No juju, no dull moment.

I prefer Zee World.  It is devoid of Part 1-6, annoying pattern of Africa Magic.  No dull moment, pure undiluted drama.

I will advice kids to watch stations that promotes good morals but where necessary Zee World. No unnecessary nudity or profane words.  At least, they will learn that love conquers all.

I like to watch Saloni, it’s one of the series aired on Zee World.  I also love to watch the movies they air.  There is this programme which is called Snack Attack, one can learn how to prepare food there. I like to watch that because I learn a lot and it helps enhance my knowledge as a caterer.

My wife and children love to watch it, so I just join them because I don’t have a choice and I think it’s not bad.  At a stage, I started following a particular series they show called Married Again.  But because I am not always at home, I don’t really get to watch it as I like.

I like both of them.  There are some programmes I like to watch on Africa Magic too.
