Every­day i’m hus­tling

TV Plus (South Africa) - - DRAMA -

tempy pushas Sea­son 2 Fri­days (from 13 Fe­bru­ary) SABC1 20:30

The boys are back. miss them? well don’t ex­pect to jump right in where sea­son 1 ended as popular drama se­ries tempy pushas (2013-cur­rent) re­turns. ac­cord­ing to lead star sdumo mt­shali (kuti), the show you know and love has un­der­gone a few di­rec­tional changes due to be­hind-the-scenes moves. but as sdumo points out, it’s not bet­ter or worse, it’s “just dif­fer­ent”. ex­pect new faces as well as a new fo­cus but with the same mes­sage: hus­tling hard, which ac­cord­ing to akhumzi jezile – who plays ngu­lube – is the mean­ing be­hind the show’s ti­tle.

sea­son 1 saw the boys rise above their or­phan back­ground and fi­nally shoot the movie that they’d dreamt of mak­ing since their child­hood. in sea­son 2, while their paths di­verge, the trio still share a common goal: suc­cess. kuti has dropped out of law school to make movies and he’s run­ning his late mom’s fash­ion em­pire. ngu­lube’s work­ing for zen­zele zen’s (khulu sken­jana) ri­val fash­ion house. and x (pal­lance dladla) is get­ting to grips with celebrity life.

how has shoot­ing been on sea­son 2? it’s been ut­ter chaos [laughs]. we’re work­ing at it and have been un­der pres­sure time-wise. how is it dif­fer­ent to sea­son 1? it’s almost a dif­fer­ent show now be­cause we’re work­ing with a dif­fer­ent team and crew. the en­tire look and feel of the show has changed and the story’s go­ing in a dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion. So what changes will view­ers see in your character? each of the guys has taken their own path and we see kuti try­ing to keep his late mom’s legacy alive at house of bogatsu. his past just keeps thwart­ing his plans as he sets out to be a man. fans loved the first sea­son; why do you think they’ll like this one? i think the au­di­ence will love it be­cause it’s dif­fer­ent and also
