This week the world not only celebrated Valentine's Day but it saw the launch of a new DSTV channel centered around matters of the heart, called 'Moja Love.'
The channel went live at exactly 5h30pm with a flagship show titled ‘Show Me Love.’ The show had garnered some significant buzz ahead of its launch due to its panel which consists of Unathi Msengana, KG Moeketsi, Abigail Visagie and Nontobeko Sibisi.
The show will see the hosts meet daily to “schwashwata” on every topic that concerns women at one time or another. “With no topic off limits, the show provides a safe place for women to air any issue, in the company of their sisters. Join the C’stahood of love that boldly tackles a variety of topics that confront all women at one point or another,” said Moja Love in a statement.
Described as a sisterhood, ‘Show Me Love’ aims to motivate, enlighten, inspire and empower South African women. Viewers can expect an array of topics ranging from heartbreak, beauty, and exercise to financial wellness topics, through heart-warming discussions that almost every woman can connect with.

"The way we think we're going to be unique around representing love in the African context is through representation. So we're foregrounding the people, local people, people from the rest of the continent and how they express themselves" explained the channel's head of programming, Jacqui Setai, in an interview with ZAlebs.
"The women in our team are the ones that are producing our content," stated Setai before adding that their team on +/- 130 people consists of mostly women - the move that the company made deliberately before going into this venture. Many of these women are content producers and scriptwriters, such as Happiness Is A Four Letter Words' Busi Ntintili.
