Mzansi Magic’s red-hot original drama lineup will see two fantastic new additions in October: the Sthandiwe Kgoroge-led Sunday night thriller, Umkhokha, and the Zandile Msutwana-starring family drama Grootboom and Sons, which will take over Monday nights.

Umkhokha is an intriguing take on power and betrayal, while Grootboom and Sons follows a family at war over their legacy. Umkhokha is another excellent addition to our Sunday night roster, which continues to perform exceptionally well with Mzansi Magic audiences

“Our dramas are the top viewed on DStv Compact during their  time slots. We’re delighted to have such successes and are inspired to keep bringing our viewers content that keeps them glued to their screens. We are confident that both Umkhokha with Grootboom and sons will continue this winning formula,” says Nomsa Philiso Director of Local Entertainment Channels at Mnet

Umkhokha a story about two families at war with each other, Sthandiwe Kgoroge (Mzansi Magic’s The Road and Impilo: The Scam) takes the lead as the deceased’s widow, and she is joined by fellow screen heavyweight, Linda Sokhulu (Housekeepers and kykNET’s Binnelanders), as well as Nay Maps (Mzansi Magic’s The Queen and Impilo: The Scam), Deli Malinga and Isibaya’s Sibonile Ngubane. 

Be sure to catch Umkhohka Sundays at 8pm as well as Grootboom and Sons Mondays at 8pm.
