Following his five-year hiatus from the entertainment industry, I’m With Your Ex is part of acclaimed comedian, broadcaster and podcaster Eugene Khoza’s return to the limelight. It’s a show where people come clean that their new lover is, in fact, their friend’s former flame.

Also joining the Mzansi Wethu line-up is Ngithande Nami, which is hosted by presenter and spiritual advisor, Siyabonga Mkhize. The reality series focuses on individuals who seek answers from their absent biological parent.

Back with a second season is Umthwalo, hosted by Maqhawe Khathide. Previously known as Ho Lekane, it gives breadwinners the chance to confront their financially demanding family members.

“In 2022, we grew the slate of original reality shows on Mzansi Wethu, and we’re continuing with that path in 2023. Saturday nights are especially exciting this January, and we look forward to giving our viewers some great entertainment that’s exclusive to the channel,” says Shirley Adonisi, Director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net.
