One Africa premieres Yellow Submarine

Yellow Submarine, Namibia’s first television show featuring honest and compelling interviews with Namibia’s most prominent entertainment personalities, will premiere on One Africa TV on Sunday, 14 July at 16:30.

The show is centred on the arts but branches out into other areas of life such as medicine and issues affecting artists. “Our target demographic is quite simple - all art lovers from 16 years of age and older. The show’s content is compelling, with interviews with many of Namibia's legends such as Ras Sheehama, Sally, Gazza, Harry Simon and many more,” says producer, Jonathan Luvindao.

Luvindao further added that this is a true first for Namibia and many of the artists interviewed on the show said that they have never had the opportunity to speak so easily and freely during an interview. “We have other shorter segments such as medical advice targeted at artists and artists’ lifestyles as well studio tips,” he said.

Looking at the way the media infrastructure is set up in Namibia and the sheer lack of compelling content available, Yellow Submarine is going to be a game-changer.

“Yellow Submarine is one of the few Namibian one-hour sit-down talk shows with Namibian celebrities. With many entertainment shows centred on a fast-paced interview style, Yellow Submarine sits down with known Namibians and interacts with our different celebrities on rich, deep and engaging topics,” said One Africa Television content manager Taleni Shimhopileni. She goes on to add that the show will be a big hit with viewers as it lets them in on the lives of their favourite stars.

“Namibian viewers get to walk away fulfilled and feeling like they just spent one hour really talking to and catching up with their favourite celebrity themselves,” said Shimhopileni.

Yellow Submarine is another addition to the growing list of original Namibian

content airing on One Africa Television, reflecting the station’s commitment to giving Namibian producers and filmmakers a platform to share their work with the nation. Excited about the first season, Luvindao said that he anticipates a good response from audiences. “I believe that by the time we get to the end of season two we will have a large cult following.

“Reaching the Namibian market is a given - the true test will be to reach southern Africa via one or two DStv channels,” he added.

Yellow Submarine has the potential to become the biggest things to happen on the Namibian TV scene and Luvindao wants the rest of Africa to eventually be part of the show’s success.

Yellow Submarine Premiers on Sundays at 16:30 with repeats on Saturdays at 20:00.
