The modern world has left African families in a state of flux. Every day the young generation juggle careers, parenthood, relationships, media noise, and future uncertainty; whilst the older folk try and impose longstanding, at times obsolete, traditions on them. Mzansi Magicโ€™s new reality series, The Ranakas takes a candid look at how an authentic local family deals with the stresses of 21st century living, within an African context.
