Wadiwa WepaMoyo is a Youtube drama series that premiered in February 2020, becoming an instant hit particularly among Zimbabweans locally and in the diaspora.
This drama series with one complete season so far tells a young adult’s love story through the protagonist character Tawanda aka ‘Man Tawa’. T1 or Man Tawa is a young aspiring footballer who dreams of playing for English Premier League Team Manchester United. He meets and falls in love with Nokuthula aka ‘Noku’ . A story of love, friendship,betrayal, strugggles and dilemnas of young adults living in the ghetto surburbs of Zimbabwe unfolds.
We love how this drama’s narrative and it’s nuances of Zim life unfolds without becoming political. The storyline is relatable to any young person or if you’ve been young once and navigated love and dating. All the characters are believable and in-spite of some loopholes here and there its overally an amazing piece of art. It is encouraging to see young people tell their own stories.
The characters include,Tawanda (Man Tawa), Nokuthula, Chido , Sis Shami, Jani , Biko, Yaya, Bla Mtose and Tendai. It features veteran actor, producer, director Benjamin Mahaka, famous for producing popular Zimbabwean drama series Studio 263 and acting in many others.
Wadiwa WepaMoyo drama series was co-written, produced and directed by Derby Bheta and Ian Masakanda. Definitely intertaining for any young person or young at heart.
