Mutual Friends Two Episodes in


I'd already been waiting two weeks for it when Mutual Friends finally premiered on SABC1. The previous show, which lost my interest about four episodes in, was seemingly running longer than expected? What? Shouldn't someone have a handle on these things? When it finally did the manyisa onto my TV 56cm my interest was piqued. It had a clean look and offered VMash as a washed-out 80s bubble gum pop star who, surprisingly, still has enough money left to raise a spoilt brat within the first ten minutes.

 Mali: United by Blood -- Divided by Greed was a Kenyan soapie, the first Kenyan soapie. It's been airing on Welfare TV 2 for a while now and has captured my attention. It has always given me Muvhango vibes from day one only with a focused, ongoing saga. Here's a bit about it and why I like it so much.
