Sally Elizabeth Bwamimpeke will join the drama series Prestige effective 28th June 2021. Ava Juliet Productions and Nana Kagga who plays Jasmine on Prestige worked towards agreeing to the terms of the renewal of contracts but were unable to reach an amicable conclusion that deemed favorable for both parties.
“It is with regret to announce that they were unable to reach an arrangement that deemed favorable for both parties. Pearl Magic Prime remains committed to bringing the best in local programming to viewers and maintaining a great content offering,” MultiChoice Uganda wrote in a statement on 21st June 2021.
“The Channel is also excited to give more actors and young talent an opportunity through the appointment of Catherine Namugenyi who will take on the leading role of Sanyu,” the statement added. Namugenyi will replace Tracy Kababiito for the role of Sanyu after failure to come to an agreement in her renewal of contracts with Nabwiso Films. These changes also take effect on 28th June 2021.
Sanyu and Prestige which launched in February this year, air exclusively on Pearl Magic Prime every Monday to Friday at 8:00pm and 8:30pm respectively.
