Reality TV Show As a Tool For Ending GBV
As one way of ending gender-based violence, some players in the entertainment industry have come up with a television reality issue aimed at addressing the vice.
Dubbed Breaking your limits, the reality show will bring together various music artists who will be the main characters.
According to one of the producers Thokozani Mapemba who is also a human rights activist, the show will challenge artists to do some soul searching on efforts they are making in dealing with the vice not just in the entertainment industry but in various sectors.
"The first episode will explore the experience of music artists who potentially would have made it big on the international stage. The season is a brief history of Malawi's urban music, how it started, and where it is going and the show will explore and challenge married couples to break the limits that appear during marriage by comparing marriage life with courtship hence addressing issues of GBV," he said.
Gender rights activist Beatrice Mateyo has since hailed the development, stating it will deal with the vice especially now that cases of defilement are on the rise.
Expected to start beaming in November, Breaking Your Limits will be beamed on various local television stations including on social media.
The show has three seasons each of which will represent a unique topic. Each season will have four episodes and will run for three months, with a weekly episode.
