- Adom TV will start showing a Ghanaian-produced telenovela
- The much-anticipated TV series will start showing from Monday, May 7
Ghana’s most-viewed television channel, Adom TV, will, from Monday, May 7, 2018, start a new local language (Twi) telenovela dubbed SANKOFA.
SANKOFA is a story woven around the matrilineal inheritance system of most Akan groups.
In the ensuing months, viewers will be treated to the story of a King who is married to a woman who has failed to bear any fruits of the womb for as long as the marriage lasted.
Frustrated and fearing that he may not have an heir to his throne, the King makes an expected decision – marry another wife who immediately becomes pregnant for him.
The plot gets thicker, has a heir been born? Will this heir survive the intrigue of the palace? Will this child bring happiness into the life of the King?
The SANKOFA series will provide answers to the question, “is the child really the King’s” but most important in the series is how the truth is finally revealed.
Now, that is the reason you will have to be guest to the only channel that delivers the goodies on your screen – Adom TV from Monday to Thursday from 1:30pm to 4pm.
The SANKOFA Kumnovela series will be followed by chatroom discussions that will be presented by Adom TV’s, Maame Akua Austin. Maame Akua is also the presenter of Asempa FM’s flagship show, Abrabo.
According to the Channel Manager of Adom TV, Abena Yiadom, SONKOFA is a natural progression of Adom TV’s programming philosophy of providing local content to an audience who cherish content delivered in a language they can relate to.
It also fits into the strategic vision of the Multimedia Group to help grow the creative industry in Ghana.
Sankofa is collaboration between Adom TV and Mesduah Productions.
