It’s that time again Shugafam…

After weeks of guessing, wondering and hoping where we would go next, you may have heard that MTV Shuga is coming back to Nigeria.

The new season is set to be one of our biggest yet, with hard-hitting storylines, emotional turmoil and nail-biting drama. You can rest assured that there’s going to be a lot of ups and downs.

So, in order to help us tell these stories, we are holding public auditions to recruit Naija’s hottest up-and-coming stars!

Now we need YOU to join the crew and show the world what you’re all about.



MTV Shuga will be holding on-the-ground auditions in Lagos, as we search for some serious talent to become part of the cast. Whatever you do, make sure you clear your schedule and check out the details below:

  • DATE: Saturday 12th August
  • TIME: 8am-5pm (2pm cut off time)
  • VENUE: Planet One, 5, Mobolaji Bank Anthony Way, Maryland, Ikeja
  • Auditions are open to Nigerian residents who are aged 18+.

    If Lagos is a little out of your reach then fear not, we got you covered!

    We will also be holding online auditions to make sure that no one is left behind, with entries to be submitted between 28th July-23rd August.

    The MTV Shuga team will be on hand to check out all of your entries and to make sure that Naija’s hottest talents get their big break.

    ABBEY (MALE, 15)


    Students are sat in the school yard working together on a group task; we meet Abbey and Doris, two secondary school students, in mid-conversation

    See babe…no dey use small eye dey look me o.
    This is not my level at all. I May be a student in this local school but check me out in a few years; mansion in Banana Island, driving a Range…

    Lasgidi big boy!
    University is not even in my agenda cos I isn’t gat four years to burn only to end up a broke ass job seeker.
    No time mehn.

    So…what is the back up plan? What happens when you don’t hammer and your dream of a Range lands you in a keke?

    God forbid!
    You are just hating and I will not forget you said that.

    See this one o!
    You think you are the only one that can dream.
    The difference between yours and mine is that; while I am awake working out my future of being a boss lady, you are still snoring on a bicycle.
    Better give yourself brain Mr. Oga.



    Take as many takes, cuts and edits as you like, but make sure you only upload one video online.

    Send your best shot to Instagram, Twitter or Facebook tagging @MTVShuga and using the hashtag #MTVShugaAudition.

    It’s that easy!

    Don’t sleep on this opportunity; it’s not every day that you get the chance to feature in a truly global, award-winning drama like MTV Shuga. Before entering, make sure you read the T&Cs here.

    Previous actors to have come through our open auditions include Samkelisiwe Makhoba, who showcased her talents as the lead character ‘Khensani’ in #MTVShugaDS. Like before, the door is wide open for new, fresh-faced talent to join the team.

    We’ve already announced the return of Jemima Osunde, who played ‘Leila’ in MTV Shuga season 4, as well as her co-stars Timini Egbuson, who will be continuing his role as ‘Tobi’, and Sharon Ezeamaka who picks up from where she left off as ‘Princess’.
