BET Africa (DStv 129) is adding Culture Code as a new 12-episode pop culture commentary series from Saturday 23 April at 19:30 that will “explore the things we love and love to hate about South Africa and being South African”.
Monde Twala, senior vice president and general manager for Paramount Africa, says “Culture Code reflects upon mainstream pop-culture and influence” and that the series “aims to share modern-day trends, lingo, expressions and behaviours. BET Africa
is committed to ensure that culture is seen, heard and celebrated”.
Various commentators, including so-called “social media influencers” will appear on Culture Code and give comments about various pop culture topics.
BET Africa says Culture Code is part of the BET Africa brand campaign, “Rooted in Culture” that “aims to celebrate black culture through the perspective of our beloved influencers and celebrities”.
