Denja excited with ‘Kulemela’


Actor, comedian and filmmaker Precious Denja said Wednesday he is looking forward to the premiere of his dramatic comedy titled Kulemela on OneZed on DStv on March 23 2023.

Denja, with his Tauka Arts, produced Kulemela which, he said, tells a story that will inspire hope in people.

“It has been great bringing together ideas from different writers on what I had brought up and see new dimensions of the same. There are some new members who one never thought would do comedy and now they are into it,” he said.


Denja said at first it was tough as a new team “but now each one has worn his character and things are going on smoothly”.

He said ahead of the production of Kulemela, they have had drills with experts from South Africa and Kenya to perfect their work.

With a cast of Denja, Talent Phoya, Edson Makande and Misozi Suman, among others, Kulemela delves into the story of Chopwicho, a shepherd renowned in his village for his exceptional —and some would believe magical — talent for breeding goats and cattle but deep inside he knows he is destined for something even greater


By the twist of fate, Chopwicho falls in love with a beautiful woman and decides to pursue her in order to win her heart. But it will not be without challenges, especially since he also has to fight his ruthless and cunning boss for a massive inheritance that rightly belongs to him.

The question is, can love conquer all or will the good man finish last once again?

Head of OneZed channel, Mosubi Pheeha, said recently that the channel is tailored to family viewing and that they were pleased to be premiering an original show that tells an authentic local story.

“Having a series like Kulemela in a prime time slot shows that we aim to keep our trusted viewers entertained and engaged. We cannot wait for our audience to enjoy what our brilliant local creatives and on-screen talent has worked on with this compelling new addition to the line-up,” Pheeha said.

The 13-episode Kulemela is set in rural and urban Balaka District.
