Embracing the KASI LIFESTYLE
Mi Kasi Su Kasi encourages viewers to celebrate their townships
WE always talk about exploring the world and travelling to far away places, but some of us are not even familiar with our own surroundings and the exciting things that are happening in our own neighbourhoods. Mi Kasi Su Kasi, which airs on SABC1 every Thursday at 6pm, explores the vibrant township life and the diverse cultures we have in Mzansi. It also puts the spotlight on kasi achievers, people we look up to in our townships and interesting places to visit.
BRINGING THE KASI VIBE TO THE PEOPLE
The show is uplifting and is a breath of fresh air and the use of kasi language makes Mi Kasi Su Kasi an all-time favourite among young people.
The first season of the show was presented by comedian, Pule Welch, who knows all about kasi lifestyle. He brought the kasi vibe to viewers and explained why it is interesting to visit a particular township.
With his bubbly personality, presenting skills and knowledge of Mzansi townships, you would swear Pule is just one of the guys from around the corner. Pule co-presented the show with KB Moremi and sometimes they tagged along with celebrities who gave a unique perspective on how things are done in their own townships. The show is currently hosted by Kamo Letsosa and Sthembiso Dliwayo.
ABOUT THE SHOW
The show aims to help change the negative image that some people have about townships by exploring what makes each kasi special.
The series seeks to instill a sense of kasi pride in the residents of every Mzansi township and encourages them to celebrate and grow their communities through popular culture, history, social initiatives and innovative businesses.
Each episode features a celebrity guest, who gives the presenter a tour of the neighbourhood they were raised in, while sharing memorable moments and candid stories from their childhood. The guest also shares how growing up in their particular kasi shaped and influenced who they are today.
Neo Ntlatleng, who produces the show, explains how they came up with the show.
“The all-new Mi Kasi Su Kasi showcases and celebrates the diverse offerings of South African kasis and their youth. We also put the spoltlight on influencers from kasi; young people that the community looks up to. We focus on their capabilities and plans for the future. We meet top achievers and experience youth culture.”
