Brenda Fassie, Not a Bad Girl ShowMax BRENDA FASSIE ShowMax is awe­some in terms of lo­cal con­tent, boast­ing a ros­ter of nos­tal­gic clas­sics such as Sara­fina and cur­rent favourites such as Isi­baya.

But our stream­ing pick for this week has got to be the 1997 doc­u­men­tary Brenda Fassie, Not a Bad Girl. Filmed by Chris be­come part of a celebrity coach’s team. They are men­tored and guided, and then com­pete to win votes from the pub­lic.

We’re a bit scep­ti­cal about the coach se­lec­tion, which is ma­jor­ity white and Afrikaans – rocker Karen Zoid, Kahn Mor­bee from The Par­lotones, singer/model/ac­tress Lira and pop singer Bobby van Jaarsveld. Why only one black coach? We hope the show can pro­duce a break­out star, some­thing the US ver­sion has not man­aged to do. – Grethe Koen

OF THE Austin, it “re­veals in­ti­mate de­tails of her life, both on and off the stage”.

The beloved but trou­bled Fassie is re­vealed, flaws and all, and we gain in­sight into a South African leg­end who was far ahead of her time. Make a date with your lap­top. – Grethe Koen ShowMax is avail­able for R99

a month, ex­clud­ing in­ter­net data charges
