MTV Shuga Naija: All you need to watch out for as Season 4 kicks off
After several months of hiatus, MTV Shuga Naija will return for season 4 in October and there is so much to look out for.
In a chat with Pulse, Timini Egbuson, who plays the character of Tobi in the series says the new season will answer so many questions from previous seasons.
“For you to enjoy and understand why anything happened in Season 4, you will need to watch previous again. Many people often say the stories aren’t connected but if you watch the previous seasons, then you will enjoy and understand every scene in season 4,” Egbuson told Pulse.
Tobi Bakre, who joins the series as the character, Segun, said the experience on the set of MTV Shuga Naija was mind blowing. “I can tell you being on that set was something on another level. I have been on some movie sets but kicked off my acting career on the set of ‘Hustle’. And when I got on the set of MTV Shuga Naija, the professionalism was on another level. I mean everything went on with little or no hitch and the story line is something that blew my mind,” Bakre said.
