Season 4

Fusing sexual and other public health messaging with storytelling and appealing characters, Season 4 picks up the story some months after the end of Season 3, exploring a number of themes and storylines that include first sex, grooming of adolescent girls, prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) of HIV, disclosure of HIV status, sexual assault within a relationship, stigma, mentoring, and the use of helplines.

Filmed on location in Lagos earlier in 2015, Season 4 airs on 120 broadcasters across the world, making it the most widely distributed season to date. For the first time, the fourth season was translated into French and Portuguese language versions, extending the reach of MTV Shuga into Francophone and Lusophone territories.

Last seen with a life-threatening gunshot injury sustained in the dramatic Season 3 finale, former 'runs girl' Sophie, profoundly affected by her brush with death, and has vowed to turn her life around, working part-time on the NACA 6222 helpline and going out with Leo.

Meanwhile businessman Nii, now separated from his wife Malaika (Leonora Okine), has turned his predatory gaze onto a new and younger target.

Music promoter Femi should be in the blissful early stages of a blossoming new relationship with Sheila, but stigma rears its ugly head before Femi takes brave steps to confront it...

Heavily pregnant Princess is struggling to come to terms with impending motherhood and HIV with the help of mentor Eniola, while Weki is on an emotional roller-coasting trying to keep his HIV+ positive status secret from his girlfriend, Leila as their intimacy develops.

Returning cast members this season include Dorcas Shola Fapson (Sophie), Emmanuel Ikubese (Femi), Sharon Ezeamaka (Princess), Nick Mutuma (Leo), Chris Attoh (Nii), Timini Egbuson (Tobi) and Olumide Oworu (Weki).

New cast members include Tunbosun Mohau Mokoatle (Bongi), Adesua Etomi (Sheila), Peace Hyde (Eniola), Zoe Favour (Mary), Jemima Osunde (Leila), "Tuby" Aiyedehin (Sheila's mum), Jude Chukwuka (Sheila's dad), Kate Adepegba (Sheila's aunt), Paul Adams (Sheila's uncle), Ifeanyi Dike Jr (Sheila's brother), Najite Dede (Mary's mum) and Olakunle Dada (Mary's dad).

Other famous faces involved in Season 4 include Nigerian stars Ice Prince, Patoranking and Reminisce, who collaborated to create "Catch Me", the new theme song for Shuga. Patoranking also appears as himself in Episode 1, while Eva Alordiah, M.I. and Jagz make cameo appearances later in the season.
