BET Africa lines up Mbau reality show
Multimedia entertainment channel BET Africa is set to launch a second local reality series, Mbau Reloaded: Always Rise, about South African actress and business woman Khanyi Mbau.
The show follows Mbau as she opens up about her life, delving into whether people really know who she is as she juggles motherhood, family and being a successful entrepreneur.
The series, which will debut on October 10 at 19.30 CAT exclusively on DStv channel 129, comes after Mbau and BET Africa collaborated on reality series The Big Secret in 2017.
The 13-episode series is produced and directed by an all-female crew and will also star Khanyi’s teenage daughter Cannes.
Monde Twala, senior VP and general manager at BET Africa parent company ViacomCBS Networks, said: “It’s inspiring to collaborate with Khanyi Mbau again on the channel that is renowned for celebrating black excellence. Following the success of The Big Secret season one, BET Africa is proud to continue on its commitment of bringing African audiences local content that is fun, bold and relevant.
“We continue to grow the channel and focus on content that inspires and elevates black excellence through authentic storytelling that amplifies the richness and nuances of black culture.”
Mbau said: “I am extremely excited to partner with BET Africa again. The dynamic series will give viewers insights into my personal life on so many levels. I am proud to have an all-female crew document, package, produce and share my life with you.”
