We are living in somewhat of a Television golden age, and South African TV content has just about everything for everyone to binge on! Here’s our list of the 18 Best local TV shows in 2018

THE RIVER 

When you launch a Premium channel despite overwhelming opposition from subscribers who feel unimpressed by your current offerings for their coins, you’ve got to go in for the kill. And The River is one hell of a winner for 1Magic.

The telenovela premiered in February this year, along with M-Net’s newest (or rebranded) baby. The channel’s flagship hit follows the lives of two families; the Khumalos and the Dlaminis. The Dlaminis are led by the fiercely ruthless Lindiwe (Sindi Dlathu), who’s married to Zweli (Hlomla Dandala), with whom she’s raising a beautiful family.

They lead a beautiful lavish life while the Khumalo’s struggle to make ends meet. The families may exist on different economic continuums, but a past with a diamond that built the Dlamini dynasty’s wealth binds them as much as Beauty, the Khumalo’s adoptive daughter, is in fact Lindiwe’s abandoned biological daughter!

ABOMAMA S1

An all female main cast is everything we keep asking for, but Abomama Bomthandazo is certainly that and so much more! The latest Parental Advisory Production sees them stepping beyond their love/dating show formula to bring forth a refreshing take on themes of sisterhood, survival and morality in South Africa.

The show follows four women who soon turn their stokvel into a money laundering scheme when they they find themselves plunged int o the dark crime underworld. The ladies soon find themselves having to straddle their old innocent worlds and their new roles as calculating participants in the dark worlds of illicit dealings. In order to survive, they must also play the game and topple old devils in their turf!

LOCKDOWN S3

The worst thing that can happen to a show you love is when it loses the plot, which typically takes somewhere between the second and third season. Fortunately, Lockdown S3 is arguably the show’s most gripping yet.

And the appearance of US actress, Tichina Arnolds, merely added to the working mix of perfect ingredients for this prison drama, which chronicles the lives of South African from different walks of life as they navigate the harsh and gritty realities of life in prison.

UNMARRIED S1

A breath of fresh air, this was! First of all, Thembisa Mdoda nails her character as a certain Thembi, unsatisfied with her ‘mediocre’ hubby and struggling with the chankuras as she is raising two kids with him. Then there’s Brenda (Renate Stuurman, what an actress. She cries on cue!), the embodiment of a successful, driven and fierce badass. But as it happens, her love life is a nightmare.

Slay Queen Lesego starts off being the girl who leading a lavish lifestyle financed by transactional relationships with men, until we step into a dark, traumatic past that informs her decisions now. And until season, boy will we miss Bodyguard Bae!

THE QUEEN  

The Queen has become that show where everything that can possibly happen actually does happen, just not how you thought and, certainly, not to who you thought! This year came with a few high profile deaths, bomb attacks, gun shoot downs and of course, that showdown between arch enemies Harriet and TGOM.

Best TV Shows South Africa 2018

If we could summarise this show, we’d say its a representation of how we are living right now. That’s what makes it work!

MUVHANGO

Long before the current wave of television shows centered on the portrayal of the unexplored traditional themes and realities in various South Africa cultural frameworks, Muvhango was already a refreshing thrill for viewers who sought something different. They did it first, they did it well. And they’ve been doing well enough to inspire a whole era of creative synergy focused on telling stories that take it back to basics.

Departing from popular mainstream narratives, the drama turned soapie started out chronicling the lives, relationships, family conflicts of vhavenda families. In it’s near two decades on air, the show has both sustained its position as the most authentic soapie – thanks to its transformative traditional anchor, explosive storylines and stellar direction – as well move things forward to reflect the life we are living right now.

ISIBAYA  

The critically acclaimed Mzansi Magic telenovela-turned-soapie is a beautiful portrait of South African life at its most exciting to watch. The award winning Mzansi Magic ratings smasher came in, blew up the game and shifted the whole landscape.

Best TV Shows South Africa 2018

Exploring family disputes, royal rifts, taxi violence and many other multi-layered themes central to the South African black experience, the BOMB production continues offering viewers a rare cinematic glimpse into the families behind the R90 billion a year taxi businesse, complete with feuds over taxi routes, royal squabbles, polygamy and more. Although admittedly, some of the soapie’s main storylines have become a bit malarkey, the show holds still as a solid fave. For now.

KHUMBULEKHAYA

This show can be on air for decades. Having already been on air for over ten years, the show is premised on the search of long lost family members and reuniting them with their loved ones.

It doesn’t matter how far apart they are, or how long the ties were cut, Andiswe Gaelesiw will travel to the ends of the world to reconnect loved ones. There’s obviously the fair share of drama because these are real people and real stories.

But the show’s focus has not been to exploit that trauma, but rather to act as a neutral platform for reuniting families, and sometimes a support system for those involved. Khumbul’EKhaya has also led to a surge in similar shows being commissioned

REAL HOUSEWIVES OF JOHANNESBURG 

The show aims to get viewers privy to the lives of Johannesburg’s most pampered housewives, and they’ve done so quite impressively! The NBC Universal franchise has already peaked in the US, and continues being popular with most of the Housewives shows now having been on air for almost and over ten years, depending on premiere dates.

Real Housewives of Johannesburg

The RHOSA production presents a lush picture of the most lavish lifestyles in this part of the world, along with a good dose of shade, enviable wardrobes and, from what we’ve seen so far, sufficient champagne for those dramatic dinners where the girls typically confront each other. The show features monied housewives Brinnette Seopela, Evodia and Mercy Mogale, Christall Kay, Lendy Ter-Mors, and DJ Naked’s wife Naledi Willers. Salute to Sonia Mbele for nailing the format.

PROJECT RUNWAY SOUTH AFRICA

If you’ve been following the American edition of this design competition since the first season, you will relate to how elated I was finding out it was being brought to South Africa! Although that excitement came with a dash of anxiety thanks to how we’ve tortured the design/fashion show format in a few botched attempts (except amongst other gems The Intern, though!), the fact that Khanyi Dlomo and her Ndalo Media had secured the rights to produce the show locally calmed my nerves and restored good chakra.

Best TV Shows South Africa 2018

Presented by Lerato Kganyago, judged by xxx with Gert Johan-Coetzee taking on Tim Gunn’s coach/mentor role for the aspirant designers, the show has been such a delight to watch! The production quality is through the roof and the level of talent in the building is mind blowing. The hallmarks of a fun competition show are all here – with the right hit of adrenaline in the mix because of the workroom pressure the faves must endure and surmount to get closer to those career launching prizes.

BEING BONANG 

The first season of Bonang’s reality television was yum, but barely went past entrée. The SA media Queen addresses this on the very last diary session, which she shares with her cousin Pinky Girl, saying “we were a bit nervous the first time.”

The second season delved a little bit deeper and we got so much more juice! Partnering with Legend Manqele to bring us the second chronicle of South Arica’s most powerful celebrity, Being Bonang distills her adventures, both professional and personal, in the most exciting and fun way.

There was barely a Sefiso this season and much less AKA, with whom she broke up in between the seasons, but there was more Lorna Maseko, more potent quotables, more PinkyGirl and her adorable personality. There were less photoshoots and more laughs and goofing around with the girls. More family, more glam and more splits… thanks to the acrobati Lorna Maseko, who kept the supply open in that flexibe department. We want a season 3.

LIVING THE DREAM WITH SOMIZI  

There’s absolutely nothing not to love about Somizi. He’s an energetic and infectious in real life as he is on television and elsewhere, by the way.

The much celebrated Media King, who has stood the test of time more than we’ve come to know to be possible in our show business, brings his larger than life personality to everything he does. Living The Dream with Somizi continues down this path and invites viewers to every aspect of Somgaga’s vibrant.

Best TV Shows in South Africa 2018

With his cute AF fiancé in tow this season (the two are said to have signed a multi million rand deal for a wedding special in the next season), things have gotten even realer. Less talked about is how his relationship with Mogale, and how navigates that with the hectic demands of the spotlight, really trails as the single most mainstream representation of queer romance on primetime television right now. We love ourselves Somgaga, who’s as unfettered on the show as he is unrelenting in being as loud about expressing himself as you can get!

SURVIVOR SA 

It’s not easy nailing a format so popular already. Still one of the highest rated shows ever, with 35 seasons and counting, you are adapting for local audiences a turf that has become a playground for the most dedicated following there is! Yet Survivor SA is really holding its own.

Shot in the stunning Phillippines, the sixth season of Survivor South Africa saw 18 locals try to outplay, outwit and outsmart each other during this once in a lifetime opportunity. Blindsides, conniving, plenty of backstabbing, alliances and of course that breathataking scenery made this one bingeworthy. Oh, a couple of hotties in here and I think most of you know who we are talking about so let’s leave it there.

IDOLS SA

The original version of the show revived this year and still missed the mark. In Madiba land though, Idols SA is still very much alive with possibility!

The singing competition has just about every right ingredient for a fun Sunday watch ahead of the new week. The judges critiques (or just laughs and, or tears) are just as entertaining as the many attempts at belting that open themselves for wide circulation in MEME streets.

It’s not just all laughs though, the show continues unearthing some pretty fine gems, with some pretty breathtaking vocal talent blowing audiences away during the live shows. There may be nothing exactly wow on the show anymore, but the little elements make for some super fun, family friendly viewing.

TAKE ME OUT MZANSI 

The dating game show returned with an elevated texture on VUZU AMP last year, wrapping up the season in February this year.

Best TV Shows in South Africa 2018

Hosted by the hilarious Phat Joe, who’s jubilant butt jiggles whenever someone gets a date are a dead give away that he really is a ‘Prince of Passion’, the revived show was a good for laughs as it was for some romantic, wishful thinking! Unlike other dating shows (there seems to be one of every channel, for every hour, now.), Take Me Out Mzansi was fun, cheerful and funny without having to humiliate anyone for it. Just saying.

UTHANDO NESTHEMBU S2

Two years ago, a reality show chronicling the worlds of spouses in a polygamous marriage blew up and became the highest rated show on Mzansi Magic! It also became the most talked about, trending at #1 for every episode.

Best TV Shows in South Africa

In 2018, the show kept its cool and gave us just the right in bites in every single that makes you want to grab popcorn. The show is about businessman Musa Mseleku and his four wives, namely MaCele, MaNgwabe, MaKhumalo and Mayeni (application for 5th which was shut down by the ladies this year). We get to see the dynamics of the marriages, the sisterhood of the wives and the reality of everything most aren’t expose to.

OUR PERFECT WEDDING 

Some people are tired of the wedding reality show, but there’s no turning away. A firm Sunday fave, Our Perfect Wedding distills the exciting journey into marriage, as each episode features a couple as they prepare for their traditional nuptial and white wedding ceremonies.

Along with the drama and hysteria that comes with this high pressure arrangement is plenty to chuckle about. A lot has happened on OPW; iconic moments involving everything from unforgettably ‘overwhelming’ kisses to dramatic cake topples, but the show still centres on love. We will be watching still, for a little while longer…

Lockdown S5: Sophie Lichaba Debuts New Role!

“There’s a heist, we blow up stuff, I was in a van that was burning.”

The highly anticipated 5th season of Lockdown will come with a lot of tears, spine chilling drama and gripping moments.

And if the new trailer is anything to go by, Sophie Lichaba’s debut on the show will be finding her revealing layers to her craft we haven’t seen before!

The action-packed two-minute trailer gives fans their first look at this season’s new star, Sophie Lichaba, aka Sophie Ndaba, who became a household name in South Africa during her two-decade-long starring role as the feisty receptionist Queen Moroka in the SABC1 soapie Generations.

In Lockdown, Lichaba portrays the character of a certain Palesa, the head nurse at Kgotsong Asylum, a key location this season, where Monde’s sister, Katlego (Natasha Thahane), has been transferred.

“Palesa’s a broken woman who’s been through it all,” says Sophie in a press statement. “She’s so broken she will do anything to feel better, even if it’s not right.”

The drama series, which boasts the honours of being the most awarded drama series at the 2019 SAFTA awards, on Wednesday debuted the upcoming season trailer.

As QuenchSA reported last year, the prison drama, which previously aired its premiere episodes on Mzansi Magic, will be streaming on Showmax exclusively from 30 January 2020. The streaming platform will be releasing two episodes per week every Thursday.

Notorious for its cliffhangers, plot twists and emotional rollercoasters, Lockdown takes viewers into the daily battle for survival in the cells and offices of Thabazimbi Women’s Correctional Facility.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON LOCKDOWN SEASON 5

As Season 5 picks up, Masebata’s cult is no longer in power. Arch-rivals Mazet (Dawn Thandeka King in a SAFTA-winning role) and Tyson (Lorcia Cooper in a SAFTA-winning role) are running the prison yard together, for now.

Governor Deborah Banda (Pamela Nomvete in a SAFTA-nominated role) is under pressure from the Department of Correctional Services, after one death too many at the prison. And Monde (Zola Nombona in a SAFTA-nominated role) is trying to make things right with Vicky (Lauren Jenae).

Sophie joins a stellar cast, which also includes SAFTA winners Nomsa Buthelezi and Linda Sebezo as fan favourites Slenda and Maki, and the multi-award-winning Patricia Boyer as Sue.

“It’s an all-female power cast,” says Lauren. “You see these magnificent women who are so beautiful in real life, and then they come into prison in Lockdown, and they are grungy and nasty. It’s so nice to be part of a cast like this, where beauty is nothing – it’s all about how dirty you can get and how true to your character.”

“The other show I do, I’m glam and beautiful, with the hair, the heels and all of that,” says Nomsa. “Then on Lockdown, I come with short hair and nothing and I look like a boy. But when you’re a storyteller, you forget about yourself.”

Both Zola and Lorcia say Lockdown helped them escape being typecast. “At the beginning of my career, I was starting to be typecast as the bimbo with the hair and boobs and short skirts,” Zola remembers. “I was tired of that, so when this came along, I was like, ‘Thank you, Lord; you’ve answered my prayers; I’ve always wanted to play a character as bare as I can be, without my beauty being enhanced.”

Similarly, Lorcia says, “Before getting Tyson, I was always typecast. I think people always saw the pretty coloured girl with the good body and straight hair… to a point where I used to go to auditions and people would say, ‘You don’t look coloured enough.’”

Lockdown creator Mandla N, who still directs every episode, started his career as an actor on shows like City Ses’la and Ses’Top La before moving into directing. That experience helped turn him into “a cast whisperer,” to quote Zola.

Maki Magwaza on Lockdown season 5

“Authenticity is everything,” he says. “Prison is a gritty, dirty, grungy world and we can‘t glamourise that. So when you see the ladies in prison in Lockdown, you think: ‘This person could give me a run for my money.’”

That authenticity is helped by his decision to film the series at Constitution Hill, the historic prison complex where the likes of Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi and Albertina Sisulu served time.

As Lauren says, “As soon as you get here, you feel the history and the stories that have come out of this prison. It really changes your mindset as soon as you walk in here.”

Mandla’s also surrounded his cast with background artists who are largely former inmates. As Zola says, “We ask them, ‘Does this really happen?’ It’s a big bonus as an actor being able to have that direct reference next to you.“

This season, Dawn says fans can look forward to more action than ever. “I’m excited about the audience seeing the stunts that we are going to be doing this season,” she says. “There’s a heist, we blow up stuff, I was in a van that was burning, and there’s a lot of shooting. I shoot a real gun this season. It’s been exciting; I’ve never done these kinds of stunts before.”

Showmax will release two episodes every Thursday, from 30 January 2020. If you’re not already addicted to South Africa’s favourite prison drama, you can catch up on the first four episodes of Lockdown S1 on YouTube from Thursday, 16 January 2020, and the previous four seasons on Showmax.

Kay Sibiya – 10 Things You Need To Know

It turns out the actor is obsessed with reality TV!

Published

on

10 Things You Need To Know about Kay Sibiya

Because we see them splashed everywhere, all the time, it’s easy to feel weirdly familiar and acquainted with celebrities.

Having become a household name thanks to his portrayal of the fictional Ayanda Mdletshe on popular SABC 1 soapie Uzalo, Kay Sibiya has become one such famous figure. As the 29 year old South African actor readies his anticipated appearance on Tropika Island of Treasure, premiering on SABC 3 on March 20th, we dish out 10 fun facts you didn’t know about Kay Sibiya.

1)      Kay’s ideal weekend would be at home with his phone on flight mode so that he can’t receive any calls or texts, and watching series. “I’m a big fan of vegetating on my couch and watching series. I love it so much,” he says. “Whenever I get a chance to relax and binge, I’m at my happiest.”

2)      Kay’s favourite food is African cuisine. “African food is so underrated,” Kay says. “I have travelled extensively in Africa and the food in Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria and Ethiopia is so great. I’m so much a fan of African food that I tried all these cuisines before I even visited the country and I really think we need to be shouting about this more.”

3)      He is a big fan of the ocean. “I once shot a show and I stayed in Mauritius for four months where I went to the beach every single day. In fact, it’s one of the reasons I am so excited about taking part in the upcoming season of Tropika Island Of Treasure.”

4)      Speaking of Tropika Island Of Treasure, Kay’s cool wit and competitive nature will work in his favour when he captains Team Peach when the series, which takes place on the Caribbean island of Curaçao, premieres on 7 March 2020 on SABC 3.

5)      While Kay is often the life of the party, he considers himself a bit of a loner to some extent. “I often withdraw to my own little corner,” Kay admits. “Sometimes the attention gets a little bit too much for me so I make sure I take a step back and remind myself what is really important in life and not let the attention and the fame get inside my head.”

6)      Tom Hardy is his favourite actor. “He’s the best actor who has ever lived. He’s highly underrated but he’s amazing,” Kay says. “The way he embodies characters is incredible. He is never the same as any character before and that’s always so great to watch. He’s the master of accents and dialects and he’s a shapeshifter as well. He never looks the same for any character and I love how dedicated he is to his work. He’s phenomenal.

7)      Kay loves being naked. “It’s liberating,” he says. “When I am at home in my personal space, you can often find me without any clothes on and I really enjoy the feeling.”

8)      Content is very important to Kay who admits that he is a huge YouTube junkie. “I live off YouTube,” he says. “My latest obsession is battle rap. I love how creative people can be with wordplay and its essence really intrigues me. I also watch spoken word poetry, tutorials of just about everything, music videos, vlogs and almost everything I can get my hands on.”

9)      Another reason Kay can’t wait to take part in Tropika Island Of Treasure is because he is obsessed with reality TV. “I love watching singing and talent competitions especially because I love seeing dreams come true and how people put themselves out there doing the thing they love the most,” Kay says. “It’s such a big stage and people don’t make excuses. They don’t choke or stumble; and they take advantage of the platform that has been given to them because they have been working their whole lives for that one moment.”

10)   Kay says that the most terrifying moment of his life was when he became a father to his four-month-old son. “Being a father and trying to be the man that you want your son to be one day is terrifying,” Kay admits. “The gap from where you are to where you want to be and the person you want your child to emulate is so vast and I fear I may never be the person I need to be in order for my son to look up to me. It’s not something you recover from but something you work on every day.”

Explosive Files On RHOJ Reunion Part 2!

Mrs. Mops and Lethabo came under fire as Brinnette and Lebo spilled hot tea!

Published

on

Real Housewives of Johannesburg Season 2 Reunion Special

If the second season of the Real Housewives of Johannesburg was an upgrade from the show’s premiere season, then these Reunion Specials have taken the entire franchise to a whole level.

We were never ready for this volume of explosive files, hideous fashion choices and shady scream-fests!

Real Housewives of Johannesburg Season 2 Reunion Special

It’s a good thing; nerves were all over the place when the locals found out that fan fave, Evodia ‘Madam’ Mogase would not be returning with her daughter Mercy.

Evodia later announced her own spin-off show with the daughter, and it’s set to premiere on Mzansi Magic some time this year.

The Mogases, a.k.a Versaces, were the breakout stars on the South African edition of the popular reality TV franchise, and one couldn’t imagine what the show would look like without Madam’s drama, iconic quotables and her fascinating mother-daughter relationship with Mercy.

Fortunately for us all, as it’s turned out, the Versace’s absence didn’t stop the reality show from dishing out every single bit of the drama, shade and wealth we hoped to see this season. The newbies are seasoned, no pun intended.

RELATED: 5 BINGEWORTHY SOUTH AFRICAN SHOWS AND DOCCIES RIGHT NOW!

This season gave us enough to talk, laugh and gasp about, and some.

We had elevated supplies of drama (Lethabo, who’s now being lambasted by multitudes for bordering on bully), vicious deliveries of swift shade (Now, you know Mrs. Mops collected these girls and read them for filth the entire season) and actual storylines (Brinnette and Christall served the kind of post-divorce reality that made up for the girls’ disappointing reluctance to delve deeper into their romantic relationships).

Real Housewives of Johannesburg Phat Joe

Phat Joe is the host of Real Housewives of Johannesburg Reunion Special

If anything lacked during the season, the girls are certainly making up for during the three-part Reunion Special.

For one, we’ve gotten a side of Lebo we didn’t know was there!

The polite lady who sauntered through the season showcasing her blissful romance with her husband, top Johannesburg businessman Lebo Gunguluza, has gone from being the quiet peacemaker to serving heated files on her frenemy, Lebo.

She also revealed that at some point during the season, she had to fight an urge to slap Mrs. Mops.

While there’s enough reason to believe she’s come out fiercely during this finale to reserve her spot for the next season on the popular show, we are certainly impressed that she’s saved her best game for the end.

RELATED: 5 SOUTH AFRICAN TV SHOWS YOU SHOULD BE WATCHING

That Lebo, as gracious as she was the entire time, clearly knows that this is chess, not checkers.

Proving that experience comes with power, returning housewife Brinnette Seopela came prepared for the girls.

Having kicked things off by presenting title deeds to host Phat Joe to prove that she does, in fact, own property, Brinnette proceeded to check both Mrs Mops and Lethabo.

She cross examined the season’s ‘mean girls’ with chilling reads while dropping files that fellow cast members have slammed for not being appropriate for national television.

Brinnette made claims that Mrs Mops, who Phat Joe questioned about being on a “married high horse”, has been less than faithful to her husband.

The good sis did, however, fail to produce fails to back her explosive allegations, and instead based them on here say. Mpumi Mops and Lethabo laughed it all off, clarifying that the night in question was a shoot and whatever male figure Mpumi was “seen leaving with” must have been part of the project.

Not done with Mrs. Mops, Brinnette questioned her on how she met her husband. On the first episode of the season, Mpumi had painted a fairytale picture of how she met her hubby.

We all caught feels when she revealed how he wooed her while she was a student, and a week later flew her out in Milan. What she left out, Brinnette claimed, was how she was “hooked up” by an acquaintance they share. And also, she added, how she’d been pregnant within a week after that.

Then she came for Lethabo, with who’s she’s been feuding the whole season.

A married man, we were told, paid for Lethabo’s hotel room during the girl’s trip to Durban, where they’d flew out for the Durban July!

Lethabo denied these claims, saying a friend handled the bookings.

In the previews for the next and final episode, we see Lebo going at it with Lethabo. Lebo threatens to sue the living daylights out of Lethabo, who she appears to claim does not even have medical aid.

Real Housewives of Johannesburg airs Fridays at 7PM on 1Magic, DStv channel 103.
