Lovers of telenovela are in for a good time. Family entertainment channel, WapTV, has concluded arrangements to screen La Hipocondríaca (The Hypochondriac) to its teeming viewers across Africa and Europe beginning from May 2016.
Produced in 2013, La Hipocondríaca is a popular Spanish telenovela, which tells the comedic story of Macarena (Stephanie Cayo), a hypochondriac who strongly believes that she will die soon. Her ‘dreams’ seem to come true when Dr Alejandro (Ernesto Calzadilla) misdiagnosised her that she has only six months to live, when in reality she has a long, healthy life ahead of her. What will happen when both discover the truth? In a situation like this, the best cure is love.
Wole Adenuga, MD, wapTV, says: “La Hipocondríaca will air from 9:00 to 9:30pm every Thursday, Friday and Saturday; with repeat broadcast from 2:00 to 2:30pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Viewers sure have a lot to look forward to; and coupled with wapTV’s extensive coverage area, this is surely an excellent opportunity for advertisers to reach their target audience and promote their products and services to enhance customer retention and increase market share.”
Award-winning wapTV is available on StarTimes channel 116, StarSat channel 189, Consat channel 812 and MyTV; across Nigeria and several African nations like Ghana, South Africa, and Kenya; as well as UK, Germany, and France.
