2sTV is the second television channel of Senegal.

It is owned 100% by El hadji Ibrahima Ndiaye, the administrator of the channel.


RTS planned the creation of a second television network as early as 2001, when Matar Silla, the new president of the corporation, suggested the creation of RTS2.[2]

In 2003, the first programmes were shown on UHF channel 23. The station was at first a partnership between the historic television channel of Senegal, Radiodiffusion Télévision Sénégalaise (RTS) and a private group, "Origine SA". The channel was named: RTS2S.


The channel showed its independence with a new name: 2sTV. The programmes it showed were more focused on culture, freer, and newer.


Mainly, cultural programmes, interviews with local music and other artistic stars, and talkshows. These programmes are mainly in Wolof. The interviews are translated into French, as Senegal is Francophone. However, sometimes a show in Pulaar is included on the schedules. "Yella" - is presented every Sunday at 14h00 (local time) by the Halpulaar personality Farba Sally Seck. It deals with the history of Fouta (a region in the north-east of Senegal) and of the Fulas,[3] accompanied by a "bammbaado" (a "hoddu" or "xalam" player) and a famous personality from Boundou (south-east of Senegal) who, with his two sons, sings the "yeela" songs, on the theme, or the local history.
