ZAMBEZI Magic, the DStv Channel for Southern Africa, is introducing a block of spiritual programming from around the region that will start showing today, with the first one being a broadcast from the Northmead Assembly of God Church in Lusaka.
Dubbed Spiritual Sunday, it will be coming every Sunday morning at 08:00 hours, featuring different genres of Christian programming that will carter for the Christian community in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region.
The programming will include latest gospel music videos from different countries on a show called Kuyamika â€“ Voices of Praise and a two-hour Zambezi Sunday Service that will feature sermons from different churches in the SADC region.
â€œWe understand that our viewers in the SADC region are deeply Christian and this is why we have come up with a content that caters for their spiritual enrichment. We have an array of programmes that will include sermons, gospel music and magazine talk shows among others that will speak to their daily walk as Christians,â€ Addiel Dzinoreva, head of Zambezi Magic says.
He says starting today, Zambezi Magic wants to ensure that viewers get inspired to live the kind of lives they deserve and desire and they get rejuvenated to face the week ahead.
Kuyamika â€“ Voices of Praise will feature music from the gospel artistes from the African continent and some international flavour.
â€œOur viewers should look out this Sunday morning for great preaching by Bishop Banda on The Liberating Truth and for greater Christian insight on the magazine show The Liberating Truth Forum,â€ Addiel says.
â€œSpiritual Sunday is certainly good news to all our viewers in the SADC region. We are calling on all Christian churches and communities to provide us with their ready-made content to air on the show. Our aim is to expand with more exciting spiritual programming planned for 2016.â€
Now in its fourth month, M-Netâ€™s southern African focused general entertainment channel Zambezi Magic continues to search for and identify relevant new titles that it can add to its developing content line-up.
â€œHaving always championed the need to showcase African content, we appreciate the demand for a channel like Zambezi Magic as there are series, movies, music, documentaries and more from southern Africa that need to be screened to a wider regional audience,â€ Addiel says.
â€œNow as we enter month four of the channelâ€™s life, we are more convinced than ever that Zambezi Magic has the potential to grow in line with audience expectations. We plan to continue evolving to meet this goal.â€
