At the core of "Crossroads" lies a gripping love triangle:

  • Kwezi Karungi, portrayed by newcomer Iradukunda Rebecca Hope, is a spirited village girl whose dreams extend far beyond her rural upbringing. Her journey to Kampala symbolizes her relentless pursuit of a better life, navigating the challenges of urban living with resilience and unwavering optimism.
  • McKenzie "Nebuchadnezzar" Rukundo, brought to life by multi-award-winning actor and musician Atuhaire Emmanuel, is Kwezi’s ambitious best friend. Driven by his determination to transcend his humble origins, McKenzie’s rise within the prestigious Horizon Media Network tests his loyalty and moral compass.
  • Abby Luwandaga, played by Nicole Estella, is the privileged daughter of media mogul Herbert Luwandaga, portrayed by celebrated Ugandan actor Michael Wawuyo Senior, and his wife Maria Tereza Luwandaga, a ruthless businesswoman defending her family’s legacy, played by Sylvia Kalibattanya Sempebwa. Abby grapples with her family's powerful legacy and the ethical dilemmas inherent in her new role at Horizon Media Network.

"Crossroads" delves into themes of ambition, loyalty, and the search for identity, offering Pearl Magic Prime viewers a profound look at personal and professional struggles within Uganda’s media landscape. As Kwezi, McKenzie, and Abby stand at critical junctures in their lives, their choices will shape their futures and the lives of those around them. The show's tagline, “Where choices change everything,” encapsulates this pivotal theme.

Rinaldi Jamugisa, PR and Communications Manager at MultiChoice Uganda, expressed his excitement for the new series, stating, "We are thrilled to introduce 'Crossroads' to our audience.
