1Magic Channel offers the best of both glitz and drama with a brand-new series, Grassroots and the return of popular celebrity reality series, Being Bonang Season 3 from Friday 19 July 2019.
“1Magic viewers are highly discerning in their preferences. These two titles offer superior quality local entertainment, which makes for the perfect fit with our audience,” says Nkateko Mabaso, M-Net CEO.
Follow the glamorous Bonang Matheba when Being Bonang returns to 1Magic for its third season. It’s entertainment galore as the fashion-obsessed social butterfly bats her long lashes in the direction of her entrepreneurial dreams. This is balanced with many hilarious moments as this influential celebrity shares a slice of her decadent world.
Much happier and carefree, Bonang also lets her hair down to enjoy her 30s as well as the new friendships she has cultivated in this amazing moment of her life. There is plenty of luxury globetrotting as she travels to New York and many other local destinations to accept awards for her achievements while honouring high profile business-related invitations.
With her family at the centre of her heart, Bonang hosts a stunning 54th birthday celebration for her mother. Pinky Girl, Bonang’s fun and equally glam cousin, is also featured in the series.
Being Bonang Season 3 will premiere on 1Magic DStv Channel 103 from Friday, 19 July 2019.
Grassroots is a brand new, 13-part local series that explores the trials and tribulations of two young men whose passion for rugby leads them into a new stage of their lives. The two lead characters follow their heart and leave rural Eastern Cape for Johannesburg with hopes of becoming rugby giants.
Conceptualised by four creators: Khayelihle Dom Gumede, Tony Miyambo, Brian Van Niekerk and Asher Sholtz, this unique series is richly woven with Xhosa tradition and delves into themes of manhood.
In this coming-of-age story, both young men must make the transition from the dusty rural streets to competing at a highbrow private school in city. There is much tension and internal conflict as one of the boys is royalty and expected to return to his village to assume chieftaincy.
Some of the cast members include Lihleli Tini, being the brilliant lead alongside talented and popular Oros Mampofu, with respected actor Zikhona Sodlaka and veteran Connie Chiume in this compelling series.
Grassroots Season 1 will air Fridays at 19h30 on 1Magic DStv Channel 103 from 19 July 2019.
