Yanga joins Freesat

West African entertainment channel Yanga has taken up a slot on the Freesat EPG.

The channel, licensed to Chiswick Park Studios Ltd, offers content from West Africa and the UK with programmes spanning lifestyle, music, kids and comedy and original entertainment series. It first launched on Sky in March.

Popular shows include Turn Up, for the latest in Afrobeat music; Number 6, the evening comedy show, and Fizzi, inspiring kids with creative cultural imagination.

The name of the channel is derived from the West African slang, the word referring to self-pride and showing off, used as a positive phrase for self-expression.

Yanga is available on Freesat channel 171.
