Igumbi Lamakhosikazi, SABC1’s new talk show starting on Monday 7th February 2022, will give women and men of South Africa different perspectives about relationship issues affecting South Africans. The female-driven show will broadcast at 9 pm.
Igumbi Lamakhosikazi is a 13-part reality talk show series that sets out to give the women and men of Mzansi a sanctuary. It is a female-driven talk show like no other, aimed at educating, informing, and having uncensored conversations about issues that are currently rife in South Africa.
The show will be hosted by the four wives of Musa Mseleku’s, independent and vocal MaCele, MaYeni with a strong personality, the energetic and youthful MaKhumalo, and the soft-spoken MaNgwabe. On the show, each host brings a different perspective, with the intent to help people who need the courage to speak out.
Each episode will kick off with the introduction of the topic. The four hosts will share their insights on the introduced topic, unpack what it means to them and how they handle the issues related.
Viewers can look forward to hard-hitting conversations on polygamy, the in-laws, intimacy, sex in the marriage, finances, gender-based violence, and parenting.
Igumbi will reach and connect with the audience because it will reflect the broad canvas of our society with a focus on “ordinary people telling the South African story” – with authenticity. The programming DNA is “straight-talking honesty and inspiring social action and dialogue.
The Mseleku’s are known for their hit show Uthando Nesthembu. The show has been leaving viewers on the edge of their collective seats. MaNgwabe recently made it clear that she would stay in their marriage only if Musa does not to take another wife.
With Musa not backing down and saying he will marry again, and MaNgwabe saying she will leave – there are fears that there will be another wife welcomed and she will be number 4. That means MaNgwabe will pack her bags and return home. Should that happen, there will be four wives again in the Mseleku household.
Musa told the Daily Sun recently that he does not want his wives to leave him so he will put his mission on hold – for now.“I couldn’t take wife number five because my two wives, MaNgwabe and MaYeni Mseleku, have threatened to leave me. They were not happy and I realised if I insist on it, my family would have been destroyed. I love my wives and I don’t want to lose Mbali or Muntuza over this. Instead, I want to build the Mseleku family.,“ he said.
