Move! - - TV WATCH - By Vin­cent Phahlane

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.


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.


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.”
