This October, Mzansi Wethu viewers can enjoy the return of popular series I Blew It, a show that follows the literal fortune and misfortune of ordinary South Africans.
Abobaba is a moving new reality series that reconnects fathers with their children airing every Saturday night at 19:30. Created by production company Passion Lane, Abobaba is a reality show that helps to find relatable solutions between parents who may have been divorced, separated, broken up or lost contact after the children were born.
There are many families across South Africa who seek to connect or reconnect with their fathers. Abobaba is a series that aims to re-establish these bonds and attempt to mend tense family dynamics through mediation.
Hosted by the inimitable Sello Maake-ka Ncube, the show intimately tracks the journey of 13 fathers as they hope to reunite with their children. What makes Abobaba unique is the use of a patent psychological approach in every episode to showcase possible solutions that may assist in healing long forgotten family rifts that resulted in the exclusion of fathers in their children’s lives.
Popular reality series I Blew It returns for its second season and continues to take a thought-provoking, sometimes humorous look into the lives of South Africans who struck gold and received unexpected good fortune – but in an instant, blew it all!
The show explores how the individual’s relationship with money was changed by a carefree life with no financial restrictions. I Blew It initiates a delicate conversation about the psychology of money as well as the influence or power it comes with, through the stories of ordinary people.”
Each episode features the experience of a single participant, beginning with their unexpected acquisition of wealth, then a sudden change in relationships and family dynamics, followed by how the money was blown – ending with where the person is now: very often in a worse financial state than before.
“These two shows tell authentic stories and trace the trials and tribulations of ordinary South Africans. While one explores the people of Mzansi’s relationship with money, the other examines parent-child relationships. We are proud to present the second season of I Blew It and introduce the first season of Abobaba to our viewers as they are best quality content and also warmly relatable.” – Philly Kubheka, HOD PR and Publicity
