Three little people with big hearts and even bigger dreams – that’s the premise of Short n Sweet, the candid and heart-warming new reality series coming to Mzansi Magic on Thursday 7 July 2022 at 20:00. 

Set in Nquthu, Port Shepstone and Cape Town – Short n Sweet is the latest in Mzansi Magic’s slate of premium original local content. 

It follows their lives as they face every day struggles while also breaking stereotypes about them. It stars social media superstar Vuyokazi ‘Vovo’ Nguqu, whose biggest dream is to become a mother, even if it endangers her own life; aspiring taxi boss Thandazani Khubheka, who wants to start a family with his longtime girlfriend; and family heir Sikhumbuzo ‘Shota’ Mkhize, who wants to bring his fractured polygamous kin back together. 

“Reality shows are one of the leading genres of television that our viewers enjoy and resonate with, and as a channel we are committed to ensuring we keep our audience pleased, informed and entertained. We’re pleased to premiere a new show that will shine a light on these individuals and their struggles as well tug at viewers’ heartstrings,” says Shirley Adonisi, Director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net

“Even though they all live in different parts of the country, the show highlights the universality of the struggles that little people face and how they overcome them,” she concludes. 

Like its cast, Short n Sweet seeks to prove that we are all perfect and beautiful in our own unique way.

Don’t miss its premiere on Mzansi Magic (DStv Channel 161) on Thursday 7 July at 20:00.
