MAZA, the drama series is set in the coastal town of Mombasa. MAZA is coastal a Swahili slang word for‘MAMA’ that illustrates negativity and lack of respect when used. No warm affection is attached to it and sounds un-motherly.

The show, produced by Lulu Hassan features five main characters Dingo (husband), Lea (Wife), Maya (Daughter), Badi(Son) and Kate (Best friend to wife) through which the plot is realized using other supporting characters.

It flashes back 10 years ago when LEA, DINGO’s wife mysteriously disappears and never to be found or heard again. After years of an emotional roller-coaster, DINGO and his two kids MAYA and BADI must find closure; the court declares LEA officially dead but her cousin sister PILI suspects malice and she is not ready to let go of this matter that easily.

When LEA’s best friend, KATE visits, she is warmly appreciated and becomes the perfect replacement for LEA. Behind the scenes, the family lawyer, WAKILI, and KATE have planned for years to settle for LEA’s wealth. Finally, when the opportunity knocks, KATE wastes no time. But when she arrives at the mansion as DINGO’s wife, the dark aura that surrounds her – reveals itself. She is a dark witch…and so begins endless family trauma.


MAZA will air every Monday – Friday at 7.30pm EAT on Maisha Magic East on DStv channel 158 and GOtv channel 4.
