Reality TV tops this week’s local line-up

A brand new reality show premieres on kykNET while Moja Love’s popular Single & Mingle returns for S5. This and more in our local line-up.

This week’s local line-up is nothing short of entertaining!

There’s a new reality kid on the block with renowned chef and restaurateur Bertus Basson at its helm. In Die Sop on kykNET (DStv channel 144) takes a deep look into what it takes to run a restaurant, with Basson and a team of experts trekking across Mzansi to guide owners of food trucks, haute cuisine establishments and diners to success.

In Madelein, also on kykNET, a mother and daughter’s troubled relationship needs to be fixed. Can their eccentric and sometimes difficult to handle matriarch bring the two together?

There’s more local to love with the latest Mzansi movie. Magwinya Money is the next film in Mzansi Magic’s (DStv channel 161) slate of locally produced dramas.

Dating has become even more difficult now that we’re living in pandemic conditions. Step in Single & Mingle on Moja Love (DStv channel 157). This reality game show proffers singletons the chance at love based on specific criteria. The participants must then go on a blind date that will determine their love connection.

And for even more fun, laughter and loads of singing, kykNET Lekker! (DStv channel 148) brings a new music show to our screens. Catch the best local hip-hop artists showing off their skills on #RymNET.

There’s plenty more lekker local television waiting – only on DStv.

In Die Sop S1

This new reality show takes a deep look into what it takes to run a restaurant. With the pandemic in full swing, many blamed it for shutting down the restaurant business – but could bad service, outdated menus and uninspiring decor be blamed, too? Superchef Bertus Basson has had his fair share of restaurant mishaps. Which is why he’s teamed up with experts to take a look at restaurants, food trucks and everything in-between across Mzansi and guide the owners to foodie success.
