‘Kulemela’ set to premiere on OneZed


A Malawian dramatic comedy titled Kulemela will be premiered on OneZed on March 23 2023.

A press statement says Kulemela, produced by Tauka Arts led by Precious Denja, tells a story that will inspire hope in people.

With a cast of Denja, Talent Phoya, Edson Makande and Misozi Suman, 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 cows 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 its 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 the channel is tailored to fantastic 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 have 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.

Tauka Arts Pictures Production Company emerged as a successful candidate to produce the first Malawian series for OneZed.

The company was shortlisted following a rigorous process that MultiChoice conducted.

From September to October 2022, MultiChoice broadcast an open call for proposals to film and TV industry professionals to submit their proposals for a 13 part drama or comedy series depicting authentic untold African experiences.
