My first experiences of the new Mzansi Magic show, The Road, came happened in passing. First a tweet from someone seemingly complaining that something called "#TheRoadMzansi" was taking place in two eras. I scrolled past because what's the point of investigating when I don't have DSTV through which to consume it. The next instance was seeing an ad wrapped around a quantum with beautiful people (Luthuli Dlamini, Nandi Mngoma, Gail Mabalane,) the words "The Road" and thinking, Nandi Mgoma's picture looks out of place. Like it was pulled from her ~personal~ publicity shots and tacked onto the collage. After watching the second week's episodes of The Road Mzansi, I have some answers.
