Award winning Bulawayo film/TV production company Ya-sibo? Media is currently looking for participants for its new dating show, Foodie Lovers. The Dating show to be shot in the city of Bulawayo will see singles being set up on gourmet themed dates. This is exciting and a different to the content we’ve been receiving from film makers lately. The growth of that industry is apparent and it’s been a long time coming. Who doesn’t love a good dating show with free food?
