IN a society where professional counselling is not only inaccessible but unthinkable for many, our people suffer with emotional baggage. Enter social TV talk shows.

IN a society where professional counselling is not only inaccessible but unthinkable for many, our people suffer with emotional baggage. Enter social TV talk shows.

These programmes, most of which are modeled after big western TV talk shows like The Oprah Winfrey Show or The Tyra Banks Show, are shot in front of live studio TV audiences.

They often tackle issues that would not normally come up in any social setting formal or otherwise, simply because we are too embarrassed to even acknowledge their existence.

But our local host(esses) will bring them up on TV and dissect them (usually with the help of experts) and the studio audience, for all to understand.

How is that for free psychotherapy we could all benefit from? Well, we talk to some of our local prominent TV talk show hosts and look at the grueling process that goes into making a good TV show.

If you thought it was a walk over, you will be surprised. They have been at the helm of live sound in the Ugandan pop music arena for a whopping 35 years this year.

How is that even possible? We look at the magic behind Afrigo Band’s timelessness appeal. P-Unit, the hit Kenyan hip-hop music trio was in town recently. We grabbed a chance to talk to them.

Find out what they think of Ugandan music and, don’t miss your usual fanfare. Enjoy!
