This is part of the channel’s move to strengthen the 20:30 slot.

Following its Saturday night movie streak in September, Mzansi Magic continues to keep its viewers enthralled and entertained with new Mzansi Magic Original titles in October.

This is part of the channel’s move to strengthen the 20:30 slot, making it the time to kick back and enjoy homegrown original movies after a long week.

With the first October Original Mngani Wam’ having already aired, the films this month include the story of a marriage in shambles and an Uber driver on a mission to be the knight in shining armour to the girl of his dreams.

The stars range from emerging to established talent, including names such as Mpho Molepo, Gomora’s Ayanda Daweti and TV presenter Zola Hashatsi.
