Mzansi Magic launched Lebo M reality TV show

Mzansi Magic has introduced a reality TV show featuring South African Grammy Award-winning producer Lebo M on 8th July.

Lebo M – Coming Home was broadcasted on the 8th July at 8pm CAT and coincided with the eve of the artist’s birthday. The show was first aired in a 10-part series on Showmax, and it explores Lebo M’s journey through his life and career. Viewers will have the opportunity to see the musician’s attempt at rekindling his relationship with ex-wife Angela Ngani-Casara, while navigating fatherhood with his son and daughter.

The director of local entertainment channels of M-Net, Nomsa Philiso said, “Through this compelling reality TV show, Lebo M shows viewers that while he is an accomplished composer and producer, the most important accomplishment is safeguarding and bringing your family together under one roof. Furthermore, Lebo M – Coming Home comes at a time when we are also about to celebrate the birthday of a legendary composer, producer and Africa’s most celebrated storyteller, whose craft was heard from Soweto all the way to Hollywood.”

Lebo M (born Lebohang Morake) is known for arranging and performing music for the first The Lion King animated feature, and the theatre productions that followed. In 2019, he was featured on Beyoncé’s ‘Spirit’ off the Lion King: The Gift album. His voice opens the film and has become synonymous with the movie’s image in popular culture.
