A MAJOR WORLD SOAP PRODUCER: List of Pinoy Teleseryes Being Shown in Africa

Pinoy teleseryes & Latin American telenovelas have had a tight competition over the African soap market since the 2000 version of Pangako Sa Yo took the continent by storm more than a decade ago. Pinoy teleseryes never looked back and have become primetime staples in the continent's major markets like Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, etc. The competition has grown tighter through the years, made livelier by the resurgence of Indian & Turkish telenovelas, but it was good the Pinoys have already developed a lasting connection to its African audience and continue to be appreciated by them, like in many parts of the world. The challenge is for Pinoy producers to up the ante and be up to the task of being one of the major international forces in world telenovelas.

Here is a list of the teleseryes being shown in Africa, as culled from a Facebook group of African fans of Teleseryes.

1. Be Careful With My Heart- Nigeria, Ghana & Cameroon @ My TV Africa

2. Forevermore- Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon @ My TV Africa; Kenya @ KTN

3. Tomorrow Belongs To Me/ Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon- Tanzania @ Star TV

Yup nabili na raw ng Vietnam ang Forevermore yung ang sabi sa Abs cbn International sales last year pa ata baka siguro give way muna ang kathniel,at isusunod na rin siguro to, pag nagkataon bagyong lizquen naman ang mananalasa sa vietnam baka nga matalo sa rating yung mga pinapalabas nilang indian dramas dun eh.

  4. Hindi lang GMA Networks at ABS-CBN Networks ang nagbebenta ng teleserye sa labas ng bansa. Pati na rin ang TV5 nagbebenta na rin. Yung teleserye ng TV5 na "Glamorosa" pinalabas na rin noon sa Africa, matagal na. At tsaka yung TV5 teleserye na "Enchanted Garden" pinalabas na rin sa Cambodia. Yun lang ang alam kung dalawang teleserye ng TV5 na pinalabas na sa ibang bansa. I haven't done much research for TV5 teleseryes being shown outside the PH but I'm sure there is probably a couple more.

    1. Yong head dati yata ng Abscbn Int na si Garingan nalipat sa Tv5, siguro na-sales talk niya ang connection niya noong nasa Abscbn pa siya. Pero di na-sustain, wala nang balita sa tv5

  5. @4:39
    Ang "Enchanted Garden" ay bago lang pinalabas sa Cambodia, so active sila ng pagbebenta ng kanilang teleserye sa labas ng bansa. Ang show na pinalabas na yan maybe old but they are selling them nonetheless.

  6. Actually, maganda nmn mga Filipino Series natin... Sa umpisa lang, tapos, nagiging dragging from the middle of the story till the end... Sana pagtibayin ng mga writers yung storyline (Please maging creative nmn kayo)... And ang isa sa napapansin ko sa mga series natin is tamad magisip ng magandang title (title from a song) yung mga OST puro revival (Dyan tayo talo ng mga kdramas) and endless episodes (kadalasan sa sobrang haba, naddrag at nawawala yung consistency ng story)... Plus idagdag pa yung paulit -ulit na cast (Nakakasawa kaya... Ang daming magagaling na actors dyan)

    Kaya hindi nyo rin masisisi ang mga tumatangkilik sa kdramas kasi tbh, kung good quality lang nmn ang paguusapan (Title, Storyline, production, OST, Actors, Promotional Posters) mas angat ang KDramas compared sa Filipino Series #Fact

    1. Parang maliit ang horizon mo, tsika. Kdrama lang ang standard mo. Saan ba kinikilala ang kdrama kundi sa mga propaganda lang naman? Maliban sa mga pirate site na kontrolado nila, saan sila hinahangaan? Sa south Amerika pinapalabas sila pero kulelat sila sa lahat ng telenovela, di sila nahihiya na ten years na silang tinatapakan pero kontento lang sila sa pagpopropaganda na popular sila? Saan ba sila pinapalabas na may rating sila? Sa mga country na Mongoloid gaya nila? Maliit ang tingin ng mga Hapon sa kanila. Maliit din ang tingin ng mga Intsik sa kanila. Mga propaganda lang naman nila ang bumabandilyo na may gustong manuod sa kanila.Matagal nang laos ang nga ito at ang mga anecdotal na delusyon na lang natitira gaya ng mga delusyon mo

    2. Kung Quality ang paguusapan
      KDRAMAS >>>>>> Pinoy Series na paulit2 ang storyline

    3. In short, propaganda lang naman na may standard daw sila. Kasi kung high standard sila, bakit walang nanunuod, bakit kulelat palagi sila sa rating kahit saan... Bakit kailangan nila magbayad para maipalabas sila ...sa Peru ten years silang pinapalabas pero kulelat lagi sila at tinatapakan ng mga telenovela sa Mexico, Turkey, Peru at Pilipinas, pero di sila nahiya at may gana pang magpropaganda, na magbandilyo na popular sila? Wala naman talagang may gusto sa kanila pwera na lang sa mga sariling pirate sites na nadodoktor naman ang mga views

  9. Nautusan lang si "Jane" para ipasok niya yong current propaganda line nila against sa teleserye(busy sila sa propaganda against the resurgent teleserye ngayon). Valid yong ilang points pero mga insignificant mga yon, not enough para masabing mas ok ang kdrama.Overall mas ok ang teleserye sa kdrama.For one, gaganahan ka ba ng 30 minutes na papanuorin mga mukha ng Koreano? Doon na lang, talo na Koreano. Overrated naman ang stories, etc.. Kasi di naman kdrama ang standard e, yong propaganda lang naman nila ang nagke-claim nyan, na wala namang teeth kasi gaya ng nabasa natin sa blog, kokonti lang naman nagpa-patronize sa kdrama aside from the pirate websites where they can control the views.Nadadala lang nanan yong mga simple-minded gaya ni "Jane".

    1. Hindi, nabisto kasi sa article na di malakas ang kdrama sa Africa, na ang teleserye ang namamayagpag doon kaya i-try sana nila i-bash ang teleserye para mapabango ang kdrama. E kaso alam na natin, teleserye pala ang malakas sa Africa... And in many parts of the world as could be read in this blog. Well, just admit it, Pinoy teleserye is resurgent in TV's worldwide where they could be watched by millions, not in pirate websites where only a few would bother

      Delete
    2. 11:06, I agree. Kasi di naman kdrama ang kalaban ng teleserye sa kasikatan kundi South American telenovela. Ang teleserye at telenovela ang matataas ang rating kahit saan sila ipalabas lalo na sa Africa

    3. Kahit nga dun sa FB fan page ng Startimes,andami ring mga nagrereklamong subscriber nila dahil balak nilang magpalabas ng Kdramas doon,at ang maganda pa yung isang nagkoment don bakit hindi nalang daw philippine dramas ang ipalabas nila.

  10. Ang importante, binibili ang mga Pinoy teleserye, di kailangan ipamudmod para may manuod, at sikat ang mga Pinoy stars maski walang propaganda machine na namemeke sa kasikatan nila...

  11. May I share my two cents. I think yan ang sideeffect sa pagpayag sa mga Korean series sa tin. Pinababa ang standards ng mga simpleng Pinoy gaya ni Jane. Bakit di na lang natin kunin yong mag-a-uplift sa standard natin gaya ng Indian o Turkish series na sikat ngayon sa mundo gaya ng Pinoy teleserye? At least, masasanay mga mata ng mga simple Pinoys sa mga tunay na magaganda at di yong mga di pinapansin ng mundo

    1. Wag nyo isali ang kdrama sa matinong usapan kasi kulelat naman talaga sila kahit saan. Mas maganda wag na silang pansinin. Kung nalaos ang kdrama maski propaganda sila ng propaganda in the past 10 years, tuloytuloy na silang malaos kasi sawa na tao. Kokonti na lang naman ang naloloko so better just snub them. The important thing is that Pinoy teleserye is gaining worldwide. Gusto siya ng mas maraming tao

      Delete
    2. Ang pag-usapan ay kung paano maungusan ng teleserye ang Latin American telenovela kasi yon ang mas critical na laban, at kung paano mabantayan ang Turkish series , pati na Indian series na di maka-fast break. Wag na isali ang mga salingpusa kasi katatawanan lang

      Delete
    3. Tama ka...sikat at pinapanood dati yang Indian teleseryes and movies all over pati sa mga kaptibahay natin sa ASEAN. Dito nga lang hindi kilala ang mga Bollywood stars eh. At least upgrade yung hitsura kumpara sa mga mongoloid.

      Delete
  12. TBH may point nmn si Jane. Yung mga sinabi nya is yung mga flaws ng mga series natin. As a Pinoy viewer, as I insert, okay nmn, or okay so sa simula ang mga series natin, pero naddragged talaga sa kalagitnaan hanggang sa huli. When it comes to soundtracks, I agree with her, ang daming magagaling na songwriters sa bansa, bakit kailangan puro Recycled ang mga OST? And sa title ng series, totoo nmn kasi, halos galing sa kanta, iilan lang sa series natin ang may original title. At isa pa sa flaws ng series natin is yung sobrang pinahaba ang kwento, which is nawala na sa tamang takbo yung story, and wala narin consistency. At yung same casts, hindi ba kayo nagsasawa? Ang daming magagaling/ mas magagaling na actors dyan. As a pinoy viewer, eto rin yung mga nakikita kong flaws sa series nation. Infairness, unti unti nang naguupgrade sa quality, sa cinematography panalo tayo, pero sa storyline, sa totoo lang, medyo sablay pa tayo. Weak, repetitive and predictable ang storyline ng mga series nation. Kulang sa creativity ang mga writers and producers natin dito. Mas magagaling pa mga Wattpad writers. I hope mas mapaganda pa yung quality ng mga series natin.

    2. Ngayon lang naman naglabasan yang mga isyu kuno against Pinoy teleserye...ngayong proved na namamayagpag na... Na insignificant issues naman kung tutuusin ang ibinabato.. The truth of the pudding is in the eating... Mas binibili ang Pinoy teleserye, yon ang importante, hindi yong sabi-sabi na mas maganda raw ang mga di naman pala tinatangkilik. Latin American telenovela ang kalaban ng Pinoy teleserye sa kasilatan, hindi mga salingpusa gaya ng kdrama na hanggang propaganda lang naman pero kulelat pala kaya ipinamumodmod na lang para mapalabas. Ang Pinoy teleserye, binibili sa buong mundo

    3. I guess kung anuman ang issue against teleserye, di yan isyu ng mas nakakarami sa ibat-ibang parte ng mundo... The fact namamayagpag sa maraming parte ng mundo should be a proof na mas marami ang kontento. At huwag ikumpara sa di naman talaga tinatangkilik kasi dyan mahahalata may sariling agenda ang mga nagpapatutsada.Matuwa na lang na world power pala ang Pilipinas sa telenovela kung talagang concerned ka at di mag-nitpicking... Pasasaan ka, mag-iimprove pa ang Pinoy teleserye dahil namamayagpag na

      Delete
    4. The flaws you mention eh mismo na mga flaws na sinasabi sa mga Kdramas ng mga koreano at mga ibang Oriental countries na dati ng nanonood ng mga kdarams. Lahat kopya sa Japanese/TAiwanese/Hong kong or American series. OST puro repetitive. Storylines are copies. Ang masasabi lang na may angas sila is production value....pero mas maganda ang mga production value ng japanese, hong kong per di sila sikat sa 'Pinas? Dahil wala silang propaganda.

  13. This is the admin. Korean propaganda is already widespread & I don't want this blog to be used. I deleted the blatant ones, we are not fools here. It's time to swat these people- they don't attract much anymore so time to just push them to the dark places where they belong. Nobody is pleased with their faces anyway. If they pretend to be Filipinos, well these are Filipinos with no taste so they don't belong here (though most trolls for the Koreans). I have written about the proofs that the Korean wave is just a propaganda fiction, I have written about the documentary evidence how
    kdramas have been shown in places where they perennially had the lowest ratings among telenovelas shown like in Peru, the Philippines, etc. You can read the articles where the evidence are presented. I can very well say they are not famous outside their propaganda networks. I have provided proofs how they used these so-called fake fans who surprisingly fight for South Korean artists who get the lowest ratings everywhere. The usual tactic used by Jane where she mentioned alleged shortcomings of Pinoy teleseryes in order to build up kdramas which in reality rate poorly is duplicated everywhere they operate. Same in Peru, they used the same style, these "fans" denigrate everybody else as low quality but the alleged "low quality" telenovelas from Mexico, Turkey & the Philippines are the ones rating well while the kdramas are ALWAYS at the bottom of the charts. If they were any good, why was nobody watching them everywhere? But they have no shame, their propaganda still are thick-faced to shout they are still popular.
    Now they try to do that trick in my blog. Those mentioned by Jane are her invented criteria to boost kdramas which nobody watches anyway: who said Pinoy teleseryes have weak storylines when they have good ratings in many countries where kdramas are stuck as doormats, like in Peru, Africa,etc. Many Hollywood hits have recycled OST, some Pinoy hits have recycled OST, so what- the Koreans can always say they have original OST (which nobody is interested to listen anyway) but who cares, nobody is watching anyway. Frankly, kdramas are turning into the laughingstock and it's time we openly denigrate them because they are just saling-pusa in the world of telenovela anyway.Perhaps if they start featuring Pinoy stars in their dramas, somebody might watch them. Tough luck, with their looks they shouldn't even be in the business of movies.As a reader wrote, why would you waste 30 minutes watching them?
    Well, you can read all my posts here in this blog. They are actually hilarious because somebody who doesn't rate but had the thick-face to claim he's better than anybody else who have ALWAYS BEEN ABOVE him in the charts is always laughable. Let's just laugh them off to their holes where they should hide if they had shame. Which they don't have so let's laugh some more, they mostly look like natural comedians anyway

  14. Admin, di ka ba nagtataka pinutakte ng mga fake fans ng mga Koreans ang artikulo mo? This post has become viral and the fake Korean wave is propaganda-dependendent and that made them nervous that the truth gets out and destroys their fake popularity narrative. They are really openly being aggressive now to Pinoys, not content on discreet sabotage like before. That means they really are nervous now, they are desperate. Laos na kasi

    ReplyDelete
  15. Admin again.Btw I have to clarify. When I criticize the looks of the Koreans I don't criticize generally all the Mongoloids. Whats galling is the abundance of fakery in being Korean, for instance, the apparent plastic surgery done on almost ALL of the characters in kdramas, even the old character actors, that you most often lose track of the story but spend the time disturbed by the corrections done on their noses & eyes or whatnot instead. The Japanese & the Chinese don't have this propaganda campaign to picture themselves as the most beautiful Asians but they definitely look more naturally beautiful so you get carried away by their stories not by their fake noses & eyes or whatnot. They don't sabotage other Asian countries just because other countries are more naturally popular because of their natural good looks. They don't get aggressive in campaigning against other Asian countries just because others are more popular & beautiful. Enough of the fakery koreanstyle

  16. Kdramas are known for many things per orignality, good storylines or lack of repetitiveness are not among them. Sa mga taong kilala sila ate matagal ng nakakanood nga mga teleserye nila, pagtatawanan sila pag sinabi yan mga sabi ni "Jane" dahil kilala sila being the exact opposite. Overly dramatic, puro koya sa Japanese/Taiwanese/American, paulit ulit na plot, etc. Yan mga sianasabi ng mga ibang Orientals. Doon sa Malaysia pinaka sikat eh mga Pinoy teleserye kahit na 25& intsik, 8% bumbay at 3% arabo. More than 1/3rd ng country eh foreigner at maraming oriental pero mas gusto parin ng lahat eh kapwa Malay country nila na Pinoy series. Walang Halyu effect na nangyari. Ito ay ahil matagal na silang used sa Kdrama dati paman at bored na sila. Wala yung sinabi ni Jane na kesyo good quality daw. Alam ko mga yan dahil marami akong kaklase at kaibigan tagadyan. Ang sikat sa Malaysia na foreign series ay Bollywood, Indonesian sinetron at Pinoy teleseryes.

    1. Korean Drama are easy to predict specially after you have watched many of them. You get used to the routine because they usually employ the same pattern or template in the structure of the storyline for almost all of there dramas, and since there are only a couple of episodes (16 to 24 episodes, mostly) on many of them, you can guess easily how the story will unfold before you reach the end. And on the first episode or so, you'll know who's going to be paired with who or how the entire story will go because the first episode or so is where they usually set up everything and it determines what will happen later on. For love triangles, Revenge, Chaebol rich and poor, etc. there's a pattern for every kind and you can spot that easily if you have watched many kdramas already.

      Delete
  17. At first I thought it was all about the usual competition among fans but the more I thought about it, it was clearly an organized effort directed from one script because the PATTERN is the SAME in different places of the world. Look:
    1. The Koreans are low rating in a place
    2. Their alleged "fans" noisily claim the competition are low quality & they have high quality, like in Peru where they insult the telenovelas from Mexico & Peru which get the highest ratings while the kdramas have ALWAYS been PERMANENTLY stuck in the bottom of the charts
    3. The Koreans still get low ratings despite the noisy "fans"
    4. These "fanatics" are so enamored about their low rating South Korean idols that they protests against the competition that makes them insecure, against Brazilian telenovelas & anime in the Philipines, against Pinoy teleserye in Peru, etc.
    4. The Koreans still get low ratings & are actually already laos
    At least the Koreans have invented the phenomenon of the kulelats who miraculously could attract "fanatics" who protests against the competition who always rate higher

South America, Africa, Southeast Asia at Central Asia, kulelat naman sila sa viewership. Malakas lang naman sila sa Korea at sa mga pirate websites sa Internet pag-aari ng mga Koreano na kung saan dinodoktor ang views para masabi na popular sila. Pero bakit sa lahat ng charts sa tunay na mundo, sila ang nasa ilalim at kulelat? Bakit nangingibabaw ang teleserye sa Africa, Southeast Asia, Central Asia, Pacific Islands,etc. Sa Hapon naman, mga Hapon ang sikat, sa China mga Intsik.Lol, ngayong alam nating publisidad lang ang korea wave kuno, talagang nakakatawa hahaha
