NAM­BITHA Ben-Mazwi re­turns to the small screens tonight for the 13-part le­gal/prison drama,

The star will as­sume the role of Be­nathi Zwide; a timid yet bold lawyer who has re­cently been ad­mit­ted to the bar and is now tasked to solve a high pro­file case.

a prison on the out­skirts of Joburg, is home to some of the most dan­ger­ous fe­male pris­on­ers, and the story takes place in two worlds; each as com­plex and dark as the other.

One is the gritty, fast-paced, and in­tri­cate le­gal realm in Joburg.

A city where the law is held to the high­est stan­dard and is the ul­ti­mate pil­lar of or­der in the com­mu­nity. How­ever, as the story pro­gresses, we learn that cor­rup­tion and greed can in­fil­trate even the purest of places and turn men and women alike into mon­sters, and if caught, they may find them­selves in

“We have a stel­lar cast that cap­ti­vates the story and en­sures all scenes are com­pelling to the viewer.

“The au­di­ence has not seen any­thing like it be­fore and can ex­pect to be on the edge of their seats,” says Ben-Mazwi.

The drama fea­tures sea­soned ac­tors such as vet­eran ac­tress Noxee Maqasha­lala and is sup­ported by An­gela Sit­hole, Lehlo­honolo Makoko, and Tha­bang Mo­laba.

“I en­joyed ev­ery minute of be­com­ing a crim­i­nal law at­tor­ney.

“My re­search into the char­ac­ter and law helped with my role. I wanted Be­nathi to be an ef­fort­less and be­liev­able lawyer so my body lan­guage in it­self is vastly dif­fer­ent to what view­ers ex­pect.” will air from Oc­to­ber 14 – 6 Jan­uary at 8pm on SABC 1. MU­SIC Is King Con­cert, an in­ter­na­tional ex­pe­ri­ence brought to South AFrica by U-Live Africa and by the in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed DJ and pro­ducer Black Cof­fee, of Soulis­tic Mu­sic, have an­nounced its first wave of per­form­ers.

South African hip hop giants Riky Rick and Nasty C will share the stage with Nige­rian heavy hit­ter Burna Boy and South Africa’s sweet­heart Lady Za­mar. Black Cof­fee plans a set that has never been seen be­fore, which will fea­ture a long list of spe­cial guest per­form­ers and friends.

Speak­ing on the line-up, Black Cof­fee said, “Hav­ing dreamt of Mu­sic Is King for so long, it’s great to see it fi­nally come alive. I have had an in­tense yet amaz­ing year, sup­ported largely by my fans here at home. And what bet­ter way to cel­e­brate than right here in Joburg over the fes­tive pe­riod with my peo­ple”.

Mu­sic Is King will take place on De­cem­ber 15, at The Tick­et­pro Dome, in Johannesburg. Doors open at 4pm. Tick­ets avail­able now at webtick­ets.co.za
