This blog is meant to be an alternative watering hole for fans of Tinsel, a soap opera that shows daily on DSTV’s Africa Magic Entertainment channel 151.

It provides a recap of as many days’ episodes as the blogger watches which may be quite a lot. A recap is a summary, précis, or a narration of the day’s episode of Tinsel as seen by the writer. I must confess that it does not capture all the nuances of the scenes and as such is no perfect substitute for the real thing. However, it is a good alternative when you cannot watch either the day’s episode and also miss the omnibus on Sundays for whatever reason.

More on Tinsel can be found on DSTV/MNET’s website on the Tinsel Facebook Fan Page:
