Shugafam, Shuga season is, once again, upon us! MTV Shuga season 6 is here. It was only like yesterday that the twelve episodes long fifth season of the show, Shuga Down South, was announced. From the 6th of March, 2018, the sixth installment of the highly successful series will start airing on Television. Web – YouTube – fans will, however, have to exercise patience for a 24 hour period before they can have access to the first episode.
