ZAMBEZI Magic will show you the TV host, broadcaster, social media star and headline queen as you’ve never seen her before with the premiere of her new reality show, Mutale Mwanza: Unscripted, coming in April.
In the 15-episode series in which she is also executive producer, viewers will get a treat as we enter Mutale’s real world, where she unpacks a side of her that we’ve yet to encounter: unscripted, raw and original.
Joining her are Mrs Frida Mwanza, Chileshe and Mwape, as we watch Mutale navigate her life as a mother, philanthropist, CEO and daughter of a conservative African woman.
Zambezi Magic channel head, Mosibudi Pheeha says: “Our viewers are judicious and curious, and their range of interests means that we are able to have a channel that has diverse content.
“Reality shows are popular and resonate well with our audience, we are excited to grow this genre offering with a show that gives us a true glimpse into one of the most well-known celebrities in the country. We look forward to seeing how viewers connect with it,” she concludes.
Energetic, electric and no stranger to controversy, behind the hashtags is a different Mutale who is cool, calm and collected. Mutale Mwanza: Unscripted is a chance for people to get into her personal life and learn more about her through her own words, not through the lens of others.
With Mutale as the Executive Producer we are bound to get an authentic show, the series will show that beyond the controversial headlines, there is a human being wearing many hats and juggling many roles – and it’s not always easy.
The season will delve into her family dynamics, romantic life, close friendships, and how she tries to strike a balance between family life and fame. We tackle the industry rumours, too (is she really ‘difficult’ to work with?) and see how she relates to others on a professional level. Parenting, of course, is a hot topic: what’s it like when your mom is one of the most famous women in Zambia?
This is Mutale Mwanza, beyond the 1 million Facebook fans and 345k Instagram followers, and more than the dramatic headlines.
Catch season 1 of Mutale Mwanza: Unscripted on Zambezi Magic (DStv Channel 162 and GOtv Supa Channel 5), premiering on 9 April at 20:00 hrs. Don’t forget to visit @zambezimagic.tv to stay up to date with the latest shows, as well as other exciting content on the channel.
