Real Housewives of Johannesburg star Lethabo “Lejoy” Mathatho will be a host of a brand-new cultural show ’Ingane Yam’ on Mzansi Magic.
The star says she is excited in hosting the new show, adding that the show aims to unite families and help children know their true background, especially for cultural reasons.
“I always thought that such shows were a form of embarrassment to black families because they exposed our deepest secrets, like an adulterous affair secret.
“I really thought that these people who are featured just wanted fame because I actually thought it would be better to sit with the family and talk such matters through.
“But once we started visiting these families, I realised that they were more comfortable this way because nobody in the family wants to listen to them sometimes, and some of them really just call us because they believe that we as a crew will save their relationships. This is why we also offer counselling,” said Lethabo.
The Director of local entertainment channels at M-Net Nomsa Philiso added, “This show mirrors the struggles ‘illegitimate’ children are faced with as they navigate their daily lives. Viewers would not want to miss what we have in store for them.”
The show will premier on Tuesday, 20 October at 20:00.
