If there’s one thing Mzansi Magic fans are crazy about, it’s lifestyle entertainment, their next favourite being sport – so this May, Mzansi Magic and SuperSport are giving viewers the best of both worlds in a new show, Homeground.
Hosted by Minnie Dlamini and Lungile Radu, the live broadcast is a weekly installment of lifestyle entertainment with a dose sports. The SuperSport-Mzansi Magic co-production which will be simulcast on both channels from 1 May, will give fans sports news, trivia, celebrity interviews, and social media, with a distinctive touch of lifestyle. Viewers across the country have been waiting in anticipation for months on the news of Minnie Dlamini’s move to M-Net and SuperSport, and the brands have been tight lipped on the details until now.
On what excites her about joining Homeground, Minnie Dlamini stated, “What I’m looking forward to about the show is that it features a variety of sports – not just football. The show also offers a really big entertainment platform, so it’s breaking down South Africa’s existing segregation between the two worlds.”
Touching on what viewers can expect in the brand new production, Sphumelele Sibeko M-Net’s Head of Entertainment stated, “With the help of SuperSport, we’re charting new territory with a live sports production, but we’re mixing it up with the hottest entertainment, which is what our viewers have come to expect from us.”
“Homeground is hosted by two of South Africa’s foremost presenters; the momentous combo of Minnie and Lungsta, is sure to keep viewers entertained, informed and coming back for more,” Sibeko concluded.
Catch Homeground every Monday, live on Mzansi Magic and SuperSport 4 at 21:30PM.
