South Africans can’t get enough of reality TV – especially ones that feature their favourite stars
The Kardashians made celebrity reality shows popular and the family is still going strong 15 seasons later.
Bonang Matheba and Somizi are South Africa’s reality queen and king, but they are not the only celebrities with their own reality show.

While most celebrity reality shows are all about the glamorous lives they live, DJ Zinhle decided to empower women in the country. It Takes a Village made its TV debut in November last year and received rave reviews from viewers. The show helped address issues such as teenage pregnancy, unemployment, education and drug abuse.
“This #ItTakesAVillage show is more authentic unlike these local reality shows on vuzu amp that are just so rehearsed with no heart. Don’t want to mention names but they know who they are,” one viewer wrote.
Zinhle hoped that the show would help genuinely change women’s lives and, judging by the first season, it did just that. Word on the street is that there will most likely be a season two.
