North Nigerian FTA channel adds new Hausa show

Northern Nigeria’s free-to-air 24-hour Hausa-language satellite TV channel, AREWA24, plans to launch an hour-long daily entertainment show, Gari Ya Waye.

“With the new Hausa-language channel, we plan to produce more original and entertaining Hausa-language television programming across all genres than anyone in the region,” said Salisu Mu’azu, head producer of AREWA24.

The channel was launched on June 28, 2014 on Nilesat. AREWA24 is also available to the worldwide Hausa diaspora through digital media.
