New shows & hot episodes! We’re Loving Local on DStv, 4-10 June

Finding Bongani Fassie gets real, Sello’s back in The Queen, it’s Uyajolla 9/9 time, Angelique has a Stalker in Legacy, poisonous politics in Die Byl and more! We’re Loving Local on DStv

Local reality shows are red hot this week on DStv, so if you’re feeling the winter blues, it’s time to snuggle up.

Moja Love’s Finding Bongani Fassie promises to give us the unvarnished truth about family tragedy, and the cheating hearts are back in a scandalous new season of Uyajola 9/9. Busiswa takes charge in the run up to the Her Majesty: Busiswa finale next week. And on Showmax, Kelly has a birthday bash and a big trip coming up in Life With Kelly Khumalo. 

Sello Maake Ka-Ncube is back on The Queen as Harriet’s quirky brother, but let’s just say his baggage is a) Not carry on, and b) Not Louis Vuitton. Uh oh, Kgosi’s in trouble! And Vuyiswa and Hector are headed for court. Angelique has a creepy stalker in Legacy, so start checking the episodes for clues. And it looks like Sne could be getting it together to leave her abusive relationship with Fistos in DiepCity, while Mdu and Ace have a kidnapping plot afoot in Lingashoni.

Looking for more drama? A killer is poisoning politicians in Die Byl, and it’s Maggie’s day in court in Sara Se Geheim. 

Make yourself at home with DStv’s slate of local series, available here. And for more snack-sized info on DStv’s biggest shows, check out #OhSnack on the DStv YouTube Channel.

The realness


Finding Bongani Fassie

South African pop superstar Brenda Fassie died in May 2004. In this reality series, her son, Bongani, a producer and musician in his own right, will reveal what it was like growing up in a celebrity’s shadow, how her death rocked his life, and his struggles to protect Brenda’s legacy and secure his own as he raises his own children. Bongani will open up and answer people’s lingering questions about his mother’s death and how the media coverage at the time affected him, and his deadly struggles with addiction and mental health issues.

Uyajola 9/9 S6

People who suspect that their partner is cheating on them provide evidence to the Uyajola 9/9 team, who then follow up on their suspicions. And last season, Uyajola 9/9 was the most-watched show on DStv in South Africa – so don’t ignore this little powerhouse! People see the cameras and go to town with their cheater confrontations. We’re talking vests ripped, host Malemo “Jub Jub” Maarohanye going glub glub when he’s shoved in a swimming pool during a brawl. All that good stuff. It’s Vitamin D for all your Drama needs.

On the personal side, a social worker's visit looms for Byl and Nicki when Mischa comes to stay.
