What’s MTV Shuga Alone Together about?
MTV Shuga is back! But not as you know it. This miniseries of 5 minute episodes sees characters from four different countries connect via video calls as they navigate their ‘new normal’ under COVID-19. While some focus their concerns on the more material aspects of this new lockdown life, others struggle to cope with the every day strains of isolation, economic upheaval, and life behind closed doors. For Leo, chasing the next social fix turns out to be the very least of his worries, while Wasiu’s latest antics land him in more trouble than he’d ever imagined. MTV Shuga Alone Together delves into the untold stories of life in lockdown – with themes of gender-based violence, fake news, and mental health.
