Produced for Africa Magic by Nigerian filmmaker and pioneer Mr. Femi Odugbemi (who also produced Tinsel), Battleground tells the intriguing story of the Bhadmus family and its patriarch Chief Kolade Bhadmus, a man whose desire for power, fame and influence leads to dire consequences for his family and business.

The Director, M-Net West Africa, Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu, said: “Battleground is an exciting new telenovela that shows how the combination of love, lust, greed and power ultimately results in a powerful story with different, ripple effects for everyone involved.”

Battleground follows the success of Africa Magic’s recently concluded telenovela Hush and the launch of new shows included the sitcom My Flatmates and Jemeji, another telenovela.

”Battleground is yet again another example of Africa Magic’s continued investment in the African film and television industry. The show features an ensemble cast that mixes established Nollywood actors and new, up and coming faces in the industry. I urge our viewers to tune in and catch this amazing show,” added Mba-Uzoukwu.

Battleground stars Nollywood veterans Joke Silva, Yinka Davies, Gbenga Titiloye and Francis Onwuchei. Other actors are Shaffy Bello, Ozzy Agu, Okey Uzoeshi, Ini Dima-Okojie and Hauwa Allahbura. The show also features Chike Osebuka and Nonso Bassey, both finalists from the first season of The Voice Nigeria.

Battleground premieres on the 1st of May, 2017, on Africa Magic Showcase (DStv channel 151). The show will air weeknights at 20:00 WAT. For more information on the show, visit our showpage.
