Dream: The Lebo Mathosa Story is just a day away from airing on BET Africa and the excitement in Mzansi couldn’t be higher

This will the first big-budget biopic to focus on a South African celebrity, with actors Bahumi Mhlongo and KB Motsilanyane collaborating to bring the singer’s legacy to life.

Here are just a few things we are expecting from the six-part docuseries which premieres on Wednesday, November 6 on BET Africa (DStv channel 129) at 9.30pm.
