Mzansi caught its first glimpse into the real life of SA’s internet sensation Lasizwe Dambuza, known as Babes Wamaleyvels, on his own reality show @Lasizwe: Fake it Till You Make It, which has just kicked off.

The 20-year-old is the first South African to get his very own show on MTV, and in the first episode, he revealed a different side to the character Mzansi has come to know on social media.

We saw how he juggles his time between making business decisions, preparing for some of the country’s fanciest social events, addressing the rumours surrounding him and striving to bring his family together. We got a taste of the intensity, controversy and tears to come, and saw a hint of Lasizwe’s sensitive side, which we rarely get a sense of in his social media life.

You don’t want to miss a minute of this deliciously juicy reality series! If you missed the first episode on Monday night, you can catch up on missed episodes of @Lasizwe: Fake It Till You Make It on the DStv Now app.
