Viewers who thought they had seen everything homegrown reality television has to offer are in for a side-splittingly funny, defiantly unique and undoubtedly unmissible treat when The Real Jozi A-Listers makes its debut on Friday, 31 October at 19:00 on VUZU Amp, channel 114 on DStv.
The show follows the daily lives of comedian Tall A$$ Mo, comedian and actor Trevor Gumbi, model and actor Masego “Maps” Maponyane and musician Da L.E.S.
This comedy slash reality television slash parody show gathers together four of Mzansi’s genuine “A-Listers” for a rollicking small screen ride that has all the makings of an A-List hit. Vuzu Amp viewers will get an up-close and (sometimes unprecedentedly personal) view when the cameras follow comical, fictionalised versions of each of these “A-Listers” as they go about their, often surreal, lives in Joburg, South Africa.
“To say we’re amped about The Real Jozi A-Listers is an understatement,” says Nkateko Mabaso, M-Net’s Director for Local Interest Channels.
“Each of the A-Listers has a fascinating backstory which viewers already know – and the way this is used to create a narrative that mixes fact with fiction makes for groundbreaking television.”
Tune in to Vuzu Amp, channel 114, to catch this celebrity mayhem for yourself. The fun starts on Friday, 31 October at 19:00.
