It was dream come true for Leonora Okine when she got her part in the MTV-funded television series Shuga. With 2014 just around the corner, she believes that she will be able to do far more. Leonora who plays the character, ‘Malaika’, has become instantly famous and a fans favourite.

Okine said “With the very wide distribution, many more film makers/film and TV lovers will notice the Leonora Okine brand. Hopefully, I won’t get typecast as a result of the part I play. BUT YES, I expect Shuga to have a positive impact on my career as an actor”
she explained “The Shuga set was very professionally and effectively run and yet very comfortable to be a part of. The crew was very easy to work with. Fortunately, all the actors were looking forward to an enjoyable experience so it was very easy to form close bonds right from the start. It was an incredibly inspiring experience.”
