There’s noth­ing real about it

CityPress - - The Good Guide -

For­ever Young Vuzu Amp (DStv chan­nel 114) Fri­day, 7pm Vuzu Amp re­al­ity se­ries For­ever Young now in its third sea­son. It fol­lows TV pre­sen­ters Lungile Radu and Siyabonga Ng­wekazi, and ac­tor and comic Thomas Gumede, as they travel, party and date in Joburg and be­yond.

But the trio, also known by their nick­names Lungsta, Scoop and Gats, wants to be more than just party an­i­mals – they’re young and as­pir­ing en­ter­tain­ers who want to make it big.

Ap­par­ently, this is one of the chan­nel’s most suc­cess­ful shows, and I can’t help but think it’s be­cause the guys (es­pe­cially Lungsta) are hand­some.

What an­noys me is how some scenes seem scripted. Surely a re­al­ity show is sup­posed to be about what hap­pens in real life?

In the episode where they travel to Los An­ge­les, Thomas de­cides to stay be­hind when the rest of the crew leave. No one even ques­tioned why Thomas wanted to stay.

is In­stead, Lungile and Siya left it as it was and they headed back to South Africa.

The three claim to be proudly African and talk about how they want to pro­mote African con­tent all over the world. But the truth is, all they do is as­pire to be like Amer­i­cans.

Al­though they try their best to be en­ter­tain­ing with the mis­chief they get up to, I’ll be hon­est: I only watch this show be­cause they are hot and they travel a lot. Le­bo­gang Seloto
