Topics such as ‘Are men trash?’, ‘#BlackLivesMatter’ and ‘has lobola degenerated’ are set to dominate dinner party conversations when Phat Joe returns to the small screen with Cheeky Palate, a new reality TV show that’s set to start on 1Magic on 09 October 2020 at 19:00.
The popular personality and TV presenter will host high-profile guests, from celebrities, social media influencers, politicians, thought leaders and business persons in a 13-part reality show that will have a group of dinner party guests tackling hot topics, with Phat Joe also trying to change their perceptions on some of the issues.
Says Nomsa Philiso, the director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net: “Viewers can look forward to a show where guests who hold strong and contrarian views will all sit down for a meal together to tackle topics, some that many may be considered to be hot potato issues that are part of our everyday lives. Our compact plus and premium viewers can look forward to more firsts on 1Magic, including the witty and entertaining Phat Joe on his celebrity-filled reality show.”
The show will see Phat Joe breaking bread with up to five guests per episode, including businesswoman, socialite and reality TV star Shauwn Mkhize, The River actor Hlomla Dandala, EFF MP Leigh-Ann Mathys, renowned traditional healer Gogo Dineo and comedian and TV host Celeste Ntuli.
