BET Black

BET Africa (DStv Channel 129, GOtv Channel 21) the home of all things black excellence and culture, brings on the heat, humour, and black girl magic. This month, our viewers will indulge themselves with local shows, Black Tax Season 2, the newest season of Behind The Story with Nomalanga “The Flame” Shozi, and new episodes of DJ Zinhle: The Unexpected.

In the premiere episode Nomalanga “The Flame” Shozi, teased out never before seen or heard information on trendsetter and socialite Noma Mngoma. This season on Behind the Story returns with a new look and format as we get to know some of Mzansi’s favourite celebrities. The ever-vivacious Nomalanga is not afraid to ask hard questions and after a fire session with great synergy between our new host and first guest, Noma Mngoma on last week’s episode, this week viewers get deeper insights into Sizwe Moeketsi, aka the Reason Rapper as he bares it all as regards his music, marriage, relationship with Luthando and loss of his son. Behind The Story Season 5 airs Saturdays at 18:30 CAT/17:30 WAT on BET Africa (DStv Channel 129, GOtv Channel 21).

It’s a brand-new day, in a new house, with brand new drama for the hilarious, tenacious Thuli portrayed by the award winning Jo-anne Reyneke. With a potential new love interest, longer commutes, meddlesome new neighbours and an even more eccentric boss, this new season of Black Tax is sure to have you squealing with laughter. Don’t miss Black Tax Season 2, the BET Africa and Showmax original sitcom, airing Saturdays, 19:00 CAT/18:00 WAT on the channel that celebrates black culture, excellence and storytelling, BET Africa (DStv Channel 129, GOtv Channel 21). Black Tax S2 will also be available on Showmax. This week, when Sihle gets an opportunity to go to Cape Town on a school trip, Thuli is forced to find an alternative stream of income to pay for it. Martha and Sizwe embark on a journey to find out who they can ‘black tax’ in Cape Town, to house Sihle as Menzi does his best to pull Thuli into his latest scheme.

After a successful operation and talks on marriage, business and friendships, last week, DJ Zinhle:The Unexpected brought on more realness and black girl magic, from battling societal expectations to deliberating on how to break the news to Kairo to an emotional scene with long-time friend and business associate, Masego. This week viewers get to see Zinhle handle a gig in one of SA’s top hotspots, while hiding her bump and navigating a new ERA without Masego.
