Monde Twala, Senior Vice President and General Manager at ViacomCBS Networks Africa and BET International Lead commented, “It’s so inspiring to bring another local black female led reality TV series to the channel. The series will give viewers an intimate exclusive glimpse into the world of one of Africa’s leading Queen of song. BET Africa is proud to continue celebrating Black excellence on the continent and we are committed to bringing African audiences content that is culture-led, bold, and relevant.
“I am excited to partner with BET Africa, a brand that continuously celebrates black culture and excellence globally, I look forward to sharing my truth, whereas over the years I have been reluctant to share anything,” Busiswa said. “But I have learned that it’s more important to own my story, and am willing to let my fans into the next level that is my private and spiritual life.”
This venture illustrates BET Africa’s continued investment in African talent, industry and content.
