Pearl Magic Prime announces new Ugandan drama series to replace Sanyu


Pearl Magic Prime has announced the date for  the premiere of its newest Ugandan drama series, ‘Crossroads’ set to debut on June, 25, 2024.

This highly anticipated show will take over the time slot currently held by the much-loved and
award-winning Sanyu’ series, which captivated audiences for four remarkable years.

Crossroad according to the TV, promises to be a captivating journey through the intertwined lives of three ambitious individuals as they navigate the complexities of love, power, and moral compromise within Kampala’s dynamic media industry.

Set against the vibrant backdrops of Kakuto Village and the bustling city of Kampala, this series offers a rich narrative filled with complex characters and compelling storylines.

At the heart of ‘Crossroads’ is a gripping love triangle in which  Kwezi Karungi, portrayed by newcomer Iradukunda Rebecca Hope, is a spirited village girl with dreams that extend far beyond her rural upbringing.

Her journey to Kampala symbolizes her relentless pursuit of a better life, all while navigating the
challenges of urban living with resilience and unwavering optimism.

McKenzie ‘Nebuchadnezzar’ Rukundo, brought to life by multi-award-winning actor and musician Atuhaire Emmanuel, is Kwezi’s ambitious best friend.

Driven by his determination to transcend his humble origins, McKenzie’s rise within the prestigious Horizon Media Network tests his loyalty and moral compass.

Abby Luwandaga, played by Nicole Estella, is the privileged daughter of media mogul Herbert Luwandaga, portrayed by celebrated Ugandan actor Michael Wawuyo Senior, and his wife Maria Tereza Luwandaga, a ruthless businesswoman defending her family’s legacy, played by Sylvia Kalibattanya Sempebwa.
