The River Season 2 – Has The Mighty Fallen

After a critically acclaimed first season, 1Magic brings you a second season of the ground breaking telenovela, The River.

Last season we saw how Tumi, her family and the wider Refilwe community were drawn into a web of lies and turmoil by Lindiwe Dlamini. Lindiwe has murdered, destroyed households, and manipulated, continually evading justice.

Will the scales of morality tip in the favour of those Lindiwe has wronged in her ruthless quest to build a blood-drenched empire? Will this mark the end of the villainous boss lady, as she battles for her life amid her legacy crumbling, or will the bonds of family prove stronger than Lindiwe’s transgressions?

This season we’ll also find out if Tumi will lead the Refilwe rebellion to ensure that Lindiwe gets her day of reckoning? With mounting evidence against Lindiwe and co., will this be the final nail in her coffin sealing her fate, or will she prove to have more tricks up her sleeve and define the odds? Will a community torn apart by greed and violence finally rebuild and restore what was lost?

All the questions will be answered in the much-anticipated season two premiere of The River on 1Magic (DStv Channel 103) on Monday, 28 January at 8PM.

Produced by Tshedza Pictures, the intrigue continues in season two of The River with Sindi Dlathu, Hlomla Dandala, Moshidi Motshegwa, Presley Chweneyagae, Larona Moagi, and Lawrence Maleka.

The Real Housewives Of Johannesburg

A DAY IN THE HEELS OF THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF JOHANNESBURG!

The first ever local version of The Real Housewives of Johannesburg is set to debut on 1Magic, DStv channel 103 on Friday 3 August at 19:00.

Viewers will be privy to the lives of the glamorous wealthy Johannesburg women and take a tour of their wardrobes and get VIP access to their lavish parties from the comfort of their living rooms. We let you in on the mostly private lives of the ladies with the biggest handbag and stilettos collections in town.

The reality series documents the highs and lows of the six fiery affluent characters, as they let Mzansi into their lives – from their luxurious homes to their prestigious family life.

At the centre of The Real Housewives of Johannesburg, we meet Madame, Evodia Mogase; a warm, talkative, straight talker originally from Soweto. She started off as a teacher, then owned a catering business and is today a vegetation expert.

Evodia joins the show with her daughter, Mercy Mogase.  The bubbly health fanatic studied mechanical engineering and later joined herbal life as an ambassador and motivational speaker.

We also meet a warm and charming beauty entrepreneur who owns a spa, Brinnette Seopela. She finds her happy ending at the heart of this series and is the glue that holds the Housewives together.

If you have been wondering who is the woman behind The Naked DJ? A former Miss Botswana, 2nd princess, Naledi Willers. The Real Housewives of Johannesburg reveals her life as a wife, a Law student with a strong presence as she leaves no stone unturned and speaks her mind.

Alongside these interesting ladies on the move is a former lawyer turned businesswoman with ambitions of becoming a superstar, Christall Kay. Originally from Durban, Christall has walked the runway as a model and bagged a couple of commercials to prepare for a career as a singer. Watch how she balances it all.

Lastly, we step into Busisiwe Ter Mors’ heels, also known as Lendy. A keen golfer born in South Africa but raised in England. She is a mother of two with enough time to enjoy the joys of being a housewife, from living an affluent lifestyle to enjoying simple get-togethers hosting her friends and family.

 

“We are excited to be able to bring our viewers a South African version of The Real Housewives, a great franchise that has done so well internationally. The Real Housewives of Johannesburg will be a great treat for 1Magic viewers”, says Reneilwe Sema, Director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net.

Friday viewing is sure going to be interesting as we follow the ladies living the life that many dream of… See for yourself and fall in love with their personalities, their passions, aspirations and their daily lives.
