Eksê, the daily youth show on Cape Town TV (CTV), is inviting viewers to celebrate the show’s seventh year on air by contributing their own video stories.

People can join in the Eksê May 2020 birthday month competitions by sending in videos that they have shot during the lock-down. Videos can be funny or serious, telling stories about home life or issues that people are facing during this difficult time.

Finding solutions

The challenges are a fun way to get the Cape Town community on air says Senior Producer Sisanda Henda. “Eksê not only educates our viewers ways to better themselves in the world but it also provides a platform for them to voice their opinions and find solutions to the issues that young people face.

“This May 2020 the team would love our viewers to join in our birthday celebrations by telling South Africa what they have been up to during the lockdown. So viewers, make your own short film, music video or documentary – maybe it’s the start to your career in television!

“We have fun challenges for everyone to participate in such as the #eksedon’trushchallenge, #eksesocialdistancingchallenge, #eksestcomedyskitchallenge and more. So grab your phones and start recording to make your appearance.”

Videos can be sent to ekse@capetowntv.org
