As coveted as the wedding ring might be for many couples (and singles), marriage isn’t an easy journey.
If anyone understands this, it’s Busisiwe MaCele Mseleku and Thobile MaKhumalo Mseleku, hosts for the new Mzansi Wethu reality series Ezomshado, premiering on DStv Channel 163 on Sunday 15 January at 21:00.
As the stars of Uthando Nes’thembu (and Real Housewives of Durban), MaCele and Thobile have successfully and famously been navigating a polygamous marriage for several seasons on our screens. This makes them the perfect choice for a show which stages interventions for married or engaged couples facing challenges on what is an important journey in their lives.
The mission? To help build successful and intimate relationships, one couple at a time.
“Spinoff shows are always a great addition to a channel’s line-up, but they have to resonate with the people being featured in order to add something authentically good to the content slate. Having a brand new reality show on Mzansi Wethu featuring two of our most popular reality stars felt like the natural next step, especially considering the topic at hand and that both women are known as being strong advocates for healthy relationships. We can’t wait to see how the audience receives this show,” says Shirley Adonisi, Director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net.
The daring talk show discusses captivating and relatable topics on all matters of the heart with the popular Mseleku wives. But it won’t just be he-said, she-said: where needed, other sources will share insight into a couple’s situation, before the relevant experts weigh in with guidance meant to empower partners and strengthen their relationships.
With new marriage numbers on the decline and divorce rates increasing, a show centred around helping those who want to save their partnerships couldn’t be more timely. Don’t miss Ezomshado when it premieres on Mzansi Wethu (DStv Channel 163) on 15 January at 21:00.
