Fresh from impressing audiences on Mzansi Wethu, the cast of Sibongile & The Dlaminis are heading out on an exciting school activation tour, reminding learners that they're not on this journey alone. After all, what could be more magical than having your favourite show's cast, who understands the pressures of matric exams, cheering you on?


For matric students, interacting with the show's characters in real life will bring this magic to life, serving as a powerful reminder of their inner strength and potential.

Our activation targets five schools: Umlazi Comtech High School, Velabahleke High School, Lugobe High School, Sobonakhona High School, and Reunion High School.


Students can expect:

  • Personal visits from the cast members who understand the highs and lows of the year;
  • Heartfelt pep talks, reminding students of the collective journey they're on, and;
  • Memorable parting gifts.


"At the heart of this initiative is the universal power of fairytales – where magic makes the impossible possible. Connecting with characters they love and admire is not just entertainment for these students - it's inspiration. And as they prepare to take their exams, the channel and production aim to cement the bond between our matriculants and Sibongile & The Dlaminis," says Shirley Adonisi, Director: Local Entertainment Channels.


This connection does not end with motivation. The ultimate goal is to draw learners towards the essential resources offered by programmes such as Woza Matrics and Matric Revision, ensuring they're equipped for success. Simultaneously, the initiative affirms Sibongile & The Dlaminis' role as a source of inspiration and aspiration for South Africa's youth.
