M-Net to spotlight Mzansi Icons
South African pay TV channel M-Net is preparing to premiere a new interview show that will profile well-known successful people from various industries.
Mzansi Icons aims to celebrate the interviewees while also sharing the lessons behind their success. It will be hosted by presenter, actor and model Maps Maponyane.
Guests set to feature in the show include Kwaito icon and businessman Kabelo Mabalane, sports executive Jessica Motaung, musician and entrepreneur Khuli Chana and marketing doyen Zibusiso Mkhwanazi.
The show will discuss what makes these super-successful personalities tick and what it took them to get to where they are now.
Shirley Adonisi, director of local entertainment channels at Mnet, said: “This is the story of success, fighting against odds, victory, overcoming adversity, struggling with success and the reward that comes with it. South Africans love their media personalities, and the opportunity to get to know them – in their own words – is one we know audiences will enjoy.
“With a host who has shown his relatability and is versatile enough to dive deep into topics as deftly as he can keep things light, audiences will have a new show to add to their list of Mzansi Magic favourites.”
Mzansi Icons premieres on October 18 on DStv channel 161 at 20.00.
