Sbahle Mpisane will soon appear in a family series that looks into her family’s wealthy lifestyle. Sbahle’s stepmother Shauwn Mpisane has been shooting scenes for her new reality show, Durban Royalty.
The Tv series will be documenting the wealthy businesswoman’s day to day life. The show is expected to be aired on Mzantsi Magic. The Mpisane family business empire ran by Shauwn and her husband Sbu has been embroiled in a 141 million tax evasion lawsuit after the South African Revenue Service had accused the two business partners of avoiding paying tax for over a decade.
Shauwn’s businesses have also been under scrutiny after reportedly receiving tenders of over R1.1billion. The couple have also been allegedly facing a rocky relationship and were likely to be divorced. The power couple filed for divorce just six months after dealing with a family crisis - which was the near-fatal crash that Sbahle was involved in, resulting in 80% of her bones being broken.
Sbahle is still recovering from the incident and took her first unassisted steps in July – nearly one year after the crash. Despite their challenges, the Mpisane family appear as one that is close knit. We've seen Shauwn by Sbahle's side throughout her ordeal. Earlier this year, she organised for singer Thinah Zungu to serenade Sbahle with one of her favourite songs, Kwanqab Umusa, during a hospital visit.
Shauwn recently told another publication that she began shooting her new show three months ago. She said, “People will see the growth of Andile as a businessman and Good Samaritan and his music career. They will also see the recovery of my daughter.”
