I Love South Africa is a South African family television game show produced by African Media and Production Network in which celebrity contestants are invited to compete under the leadership of two team captains to answer trivia questions about the country and its history, from people and geography to languages and achievements.
In Season 2, the game changed slightly as celebrities teamed up to play against ordinary South African families. In Season 1, only celebrities participated on the show.
The series explores and celebrates everything that makes us a uniquely rainbow nation - from our history; our people and experiences to our distinctive geographical attributes, our little habits and languages and our great achievements in the last 20 years of freedom.
Hosted by the sassy Masechaba Lekalake along with her two captains - funnymen Mark Banks and Tats Nkonzo - the show brings humour, wit and lots of patriotic pleasures.
Each week, six famous compatriots ranging from athletes, politicians, film stars, TV personalities, singers and musicians are invited to the show. They are divided into two teams, under the leadership of captains Mark and Tats. (This was reduced to three celebrity contestants in Season 2).
I Love South Africa is made up of six rounds and a finale. Each round has a theme. Within that theme, the teams as a whole or individual members, are asked diverse questions in different formats.
The audience is split up into two teams' "stands" and dressed in the colours of the national flag. Each stand has its own colour. The men and women in these stands are behind their teams – literally and figuratively.
The entertaining activities are accompanied by a live studio band that heightens the atmosphere and lend viewers to an exciting journey.
Remember the South Africa music from yesteryear? Or that spectacular gold medal at the Olympic Games. Or how about the brilliant goal at the World Cup?
Get ready for bright moments, memories to cherish, familiar events, and everything that's truly South African, past or present.
