Speaking on the project, Oshin said, “I’m elated to be producing the new season of MTV Shuga… We have so many issues in the world and while we entertain our audience, we also talk about serious issues raised in our communities. MTV Shuga is entertaining, witty and fun but also effects change within communities and inspires the next generation of young people to serve the world better.”
One of the returning cast, Timini Egbuson said, “I am so excited to be back on MTV Shuga Naija. I couldn’t be prouder to be such an integral part of this conversation, helping to educate young people on effective ways to manage pressure from society and to make informed decisions about their sexual health. This is my fourth series of MTV Shuga, and not only have I learned so much from being involved, but I’m sure that our fans have grown with us too. MTV Shuga Naija continues to make a positive change in Nigeria, and I’m thrilled to be back on set again and to meet the new cast”.
MTV Shuga Naija has featured top Nigerian music star, Tiwa Savage amongst several notable movie stars.
