New Mzansi Magic Series, Lavish Set To Wow Fans.

The only things bigger than the cars, houses, and jewels of Johannesburg North are the egos and bank accounts. But what is life really like behind the glitz and gold of the country’s rich and powerful?
Mzansi Magic
Mzansi Magic’s new drama Lavish follows the lives of a group of 30-something wealthy women as they navigate death, divorce, and disaster – all while looking devilishly fabulous, of course
Executive produced by celebrated actress Lulu Hela (Gomora), Lavish stars Jessica Nkosi (The QueenIsibaya); Ayanda Bandla (NqobileA Zulu Christmas); stage actor Kanyi Nokwe (Gone NativeSarafina in Black and White); Sdumo Mtshali (IsibayaBlood Psalms); Mary-Anne Barlow (LegacyThe River); TV legend and advocate Nakedi Ribane (Inkaba, Ways of Dying); and renowned actor and MC Nolo Seabi, amongst others
Set in the suburb of Kyalami, Lavish follows the lives of three very different women held together by the strong bond of their friendship. There will be love, laughter, tears and of course, glamour, come rain or shine.
There’s Zozi (Jessica Nkosi) – Insta mommy, rich wife, and fabulous fashionista – who is juggling fame with family… and it’s not always pretty. She’s the one who knows where the bodies are buried – but will the skeletons come tumbling out of her designer closet?
Kat (Ayanda Bandla) is an ambitious workaholic juggling a thriving career, motherhood, and dating. She comes from a prominent political family and has her sights set on the very top of the political food chain. What could possibly go wrong?
And unlike her more polished friends, Nomzamo (Kanyi Nokwe) is a little rough around the edges, but that’s what makes her more fun. A fiercely fabulous vixen with new money to burn, she wants to build an empire – while her partner wants a dedicated wife. Can she be both?
“Mzansi Magic has long produced cutting-edge dramas and dramatic comedies geared towards a mature audience, and Lavish is the latest show in this genre. Our Friday nights have a reputation for edgy content that reflects the lives of certain demographics while exploring themes many find universal. We can’t wait to see how our discerning audience will resonate with the show,”. It premieres on Friday 4 November at 20:00.   says Shirley Adonisi, Director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net.
