- Maya Jama goes wedding dress shopping
TV and radio presenter Maya Jama (Rinse FM and ITV, Cannonball) and actor Allan ‘Seapa’ Mustafa (BBC, People Just Do Nothing) star in First Heat, an entertaining new online series set in Southern Africa. Whilst eating and competing their way through Mozambique and South Africa, the hilarious duo retrace the journey of PERi-PERi chillies, from its humble beginnings in Africa to menus around the world.
As well as braving unusual delicacies and meeting the people that farm 494 acres (400 football fields) of Nando’s unique PERi-PERi chillies, Maya and Seapa get stuck in to the music, fashion and lifestyle of the locals.
Best known for writing and starring in cult BBC hit, People Just Do Nothing, the series showcases Seapa’s secret culinary skills. Future episodes will see Maya try on a wedding-ready capulana (despite revealing her boyfriend, grime star Stormzy, doesn’t know they’re getting married yet!), and Seapa cooks up a Southern African inspired storm with his own Bunny Chow recipe. With both stars having built their careers in radio back in London, the pair learn the historical significance of former pirate station, Radio Mozambique.
