Starflower The new season of the daring drama series Shuga, dubbed sex, love and money will give twelve Kenyans aged between 18-24 an opportunity to learn from expert filmmakers and public health practitioners. This initiative dubbed Rising Stars will see them trained on key disciplines associated with the production of the programme which include acting, directing, producing, cinematography, marketing and public health. Each participant will split their time between individual coaching sessions with a dedicated mentor, shadowing their mentor as they go about their duties on the set. “We are thrilled that this mentorship programme will empower Kenyan youth by developing their talents and deepening their insights into the media industry while working on one of the most exciting TV franchises in Africa,” said Alex Okosi, the senior vice president and managing director, MTV Networks Africa. Interested individuals can apply online at the website www.mtvshuga.com . They should strictly be Kenyan residents and should be out of full-time education. The programme goes into production in Kenya between August-September 2011. The initiative is sponsored by MTV Staying Alive Foundation, the U.S President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), Partnership for an HIV-Free Generation, Kenya (HFG/K) and the National Youth Talent Academy (NYTA). nairobistar
