We can’t get enough of Lethabo aka ‘LeJoy’ on Real Housewives. She is a queen! The housewives are taking over the city of gold, bringing more designer gowns, drama and diva vibes that you can’t handle. Like newcomer, Tarina Patel says, “I don’t have a nine to five. I don’t know what that is.” 

And speaking of royalty, have you watched Ifalakhe yet? It’s one of the best African productions out in 2019. It tells of the power-hungry king of the Okuhle tribe, who does battle against the Khanya people. Everyone’s been talking about it!

Love binge-watching on your phone?

Both of these shows are streaming on Showmax, so you can binge them from episode one. And if you like to watch on your phone, Vodacom and Showmax have launched a mobile-only deal for R99pm.
