COMEDIAN Bob Nkosha’s alter ego Dorika will next month start showing on Zambezi Magic, thereby giving Southern African viewers a taste of one of Zambia’s most entertaining characters.
In the show, Dorika is a high rolling social lite who has established herself as a woman of influence in the suburbs of Kitwe, according to a statement made available to the Weekend Mail in Lusaka by MultiChoice.
In this new and refreshing series, viewers will catch up with Dorika with new philosophies and mannerisms and will have a glimpse of the way she runs her household and businesses.
“We’re happy to launch this humorous, witty and very captivating series which we are pretty sure our viewers will enjoy not only in Zambia but the entire region where Zambezi Magic is available. Dorika is a success story in Zambia with an international appeal, hence her character will resonate with comedy enthusiasts,” Zambezi Magic head Addiel Dzinoreva says.
“The character ‘Dorika’ is played by renowned Zambian comedian Bob Nkosha. Bob Nkosha is a celebrated comedian, writer, director and actor, he is probably best known for his alter ego character of Dorika Ndaifulila but to place the focus entirely on his alter ego would be to miss one, the sharpest comedic minds working today.
“In 2006, he was the winner of MNet produced comedy competition ‘Stand up Zambia’ which aired on DStv beating 10 other highly talented Zambian comedians.’
Dorika is produced by 2015 Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards nominee for Best TV Series for Maliposa and 2014 double nominee in the Zambia Film Television and Radio Awards ZAFTARS for Best Feature ‘Beautiful Lie’ and Best Script Writer ‘Foolish Me’ Mingeli Palata.
He is also the first Zambian actor to make a cameo appearance in a high end Nollywood feature film ‘Thy Will Be Done’ produced and directed by Obi Emelonye starring Mercy Johnson and Ramsey Noah.
Dorika will start airing on November 9 at 21:00 hours.
Zambezi Magic is available in six southern African countries on DStv Premium, Compact Plus and Compact bouquets.
