Zambezi Magic released a trailer on their Facebook page for a new show coming soon to their platform called Makofi.
Makofi is a story about a young woman called Anna, who is pursuing her lifelong dream of becoming a professional boxer. In working towards this goal she shatters cultural and societal norms.
Veteran actor Kangwa Chileshe of Kabanana fame plays Anna’s father in the show, whose boxing career inspires her to aspire to be a professional fighter.
The show is very ambitious and nothing that Zambian grown TV has ever produced. It has a truly unique premise and promises to be action-packed and heartwarming.
The show also seems to be an inspirational piece for young women and girls, encouraging them to chase their ambitions in their dream careers that don’t seem to fit gender norms.
Makofi will air on Zambezi Magic DStv, channel 162 on the 1st of February, 2021 at 19:30hrs.
