TV Plus (South Africa) - - DRAMA -

Igazi Sea­son 2 Sun­days (from 9 April) Mzansi Magic (*161) 20:00

Tak­ing over the throne on a drama se­ries like Igazi (2016- cur­rent) is usu­ally fol­lowed by a quick and tragic death. This left right­ful heir Bantu (Anga Makhubalo) fear­ing for his life in sea­son 1, and his evil step­mom No­maRus­sia (Vatiswa Ndara) and cor­rupt brother Jonga (Andile Ne­bu­lane) used ev­ery trick in their black magic book to try un­seat him. But his strong-willed grandma Nomzuzu (Nomhle Nkonyeni ) and girl­friend Phumza (Talitha Ndima) weren’t about to give up on what the an­ces­tors wanted for Bantu’s life and they stood up to the spir­its. “There are still plenty of chal­lenges for Bantu,” says Anga. “As a Joburg boy, he’s hav­ing a hard time ad­just­ing to the royal life­style and, of course, he’s at war with a few peo­ple try­ing to get him off the throne”. Bantu’s ready for the chal­lenge though as sea­son 2 starts. Nomzuzu has helped groomed him into a re­spect­ful chief where his peo­ple and his love Phumza sup­port him along the way. “Bantu has ma­tured a lot in this sea­son and is more will­ing to take chal­lenges that face him head on. He un­der­stands his duty as the king and is up for what­ever chal­lenge com­ing to him.”

KEEP­ING THE DEAD ALIVE

No­maRus­sia might be locked up in jail but that doesn’t stop her mali- cious schemes to de­stroy Bantu’s life. Pro­ducer Shona Fer­gu­son says “the heart of the show has al­ways been about fam­ily con­flict. She will be us­ing much more pow­er­ful forces of dark­ness this time and Jonga wakes up from the dead in a war to un­seat Bantu. That will keep au­di­ences watch­ing!”

Bantu may be scared, but he’s fac­ing his su­per­nat­u­ral en­e­mies head on.
