Tea is about to spill.

I heard some things on the promo of new 1Magic reality talk show Cheeky Palate that had me going ‘Woooah, hold on a damn minute!’

And that’s the vibe and format for the new offering, which will land on national screens tonight (Friday, October 9) at 19:00 on DStv channel 103.

Piloted by outspoken motormouth Phat Joe, the new show will revolve around dinner conversations in which controversial topics and candid conversations will be on the table.

Each person will have Phat Joe host well-known guests as they chat freely about the kind of topics you shouldn’t be bringing up at dinner anyways. ‘Are men trash’, ‘Black Lives Matter’ and ‘Has lobola denigrated are listed as some of the topics and themes to dominate the di

Hosted over 13 episodes, guests to be featured consist of celebrities, well-known media personalities, influencers, politicians, thought leaders, business folks, and the sort.

We haven’t seen Phat Joe on TV since he was the host of dating show Take Me Out Mzansi a few years. He’s most certainly welcome to shake the table, and we will be tuning to see this one plays out!

Full List of All SAFTA Nominees 2021

Check out the full list of SAFTA Nominees for 2021.



The River Gets 12 SAFTAs Nominations

Despite the pandemic disrupting most of the television production last year, Mzansi actors and actresses pushed through the extremely taxing conditions to deliver jaw-dropping performances every week. It would only be fitting to award each and every one in the industry with an award for the sheer commitment to the craft.

But since this is not a perfect world, only those that displayed Herculean resilience to keep us gripping our seat have received nods for the 15th South African Film And Television Awards (SAFTAs).

It was an exceptional year for content on the streaming service Netflix, with a total of 45 SAFTA nominations. The front runner is How to Ruin Christmas: The Wedding, leading the pack with 10 nominations. They go up against viewer’s favourite The River and Legacywhich earned 12 nominations on their debut season. Its quite telling, since both shows are from the local production house, Tshedza Pictures.

WATCH: Official Trailer of The Underground Railroad

Check out the trailer from The Underground Railroad starring Thuso Mbedu!



The Underground Railroad Thuso Mbedu

If you needed another reason to flex about the crop of talent that South Ah exports to the U.S., Thuso Mbedu is the latest case study.

The actress is set to feature on an Amazon Prime Video’s limited series as lead on The Underground Railroad. She plays the role of Cora Randall in Barry Jenkins’ 10-episode series that is adapted from Colson Whitehead’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel.

The novel follows the story of Cora, a slave who concocts a plan to escape from a plantation in Georgia with the help of her trusted companion, Caesar. The duo’s journeys out of the Antebellum South sees them make a run for it though the rumoured underground railroad.


While on the run, hot on the heels of her every turn is a bounty hunter that is intent on catching her because the only other slave that evaded his clutches was Cora’s mother. Cora flees from state to state, passing North and South California in search for freedom – a journey that leads her to Tennessee.

The series will drop next month May 14 on the streaming platform. The thespian has been dropping scenes from the series on the socials as teasers. Cav

Bonang on another ‘Being Bonang’ Season “I’m Over it”

“They owe me money”



Bonang Matheba has squashed every last fantasy of ‘Being Bonang’ ever coming back on our screens.

The South African media personality responded to a fan on Twitter, who pleaded with her to revive her popular reality television series. It’s not happening, Queen B confirmed. “I’m over it”, she revealed, because also “they owe me money.”

It’s unclear who owes Bonang money. But the the show, which aired it’s third and last season in October 2019, was produced for BarLeader for M-Net. We’re guessing it’s somewhere there.

The news wouldn’t come as a surprise to those who know that she’s already said no more. On the last day of its airing, Bonang shocked fans when she announced that she wouldn’t be making herself available for another season. At the time, she did not get into the details of why she had opted to discontinue the series, despite its popularity.

As soon as the final episode had aired in 2019, the media personality went ahead and described the filming of the third series as “one of the worst experiences in my life”

And then went on to confirm that it’s “finished, finished, finished!”

Matheba did however tease the possibility of reloading B*Dazzled, the web docu-series she did in 2011. If she shops that around, we could still basically get ‘Being Bonang’, under a different title.
