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.
The making of a star
When people discuss South African celebrities, the top two slots are reserved for Brenda Fassie and Lebo Mathosa.
The former Boom Shaka frontwoman died at the height of her career, but we would love to see the journey she took to the dizzying heights of international fame.

The inspiration behind her biggest hits
From Dream to It’s About Time, we would love to know more about Lebo’s creative process in producing some of the most era-defining songs in South African music history.
The tea on her love life
We know for a fact that her former lover Sibongile Ngubane was on the research team for Dream and we are keen to learn more about their love affair.
Sibongile talks about her journey with Lebo Mathosa.
