About the Show

Eksê Zwakala (known as Eksê: Let's Talk with Masechaba Lekalake in the first two seasons) is a South African talk show produced by Ochre Moving Pictures and Masechaba Media which consists of three friends who get together after work to chat about pertinent social issues that they come across in their daily lives, while getting the opinons of viewers through vox pop interviews on the eKasi streets.

The series premiered on OpenView HD's eKasi+ channel on Tuesday 15 October 2013, at 18h00; and the following day on at 10h00. It aired a day ahead of until Season 3, when the show was revamped, renamed, given new hosts and scheduled to simulcast on and eKasi+.

It was the first original series to air on eKasi+, starting on the evening that the channel went live in October 2013.

In the first two seasons, the show was anchored by television personality Masechaba Lekalake together with two friends who got together after work to chat about the issues that they came across in their daily lives.

Masechaba, comedian Tol A$$ Mo and socialite Refilwe Modiselle channeled their opinions and personalities into conversations that were sourced from their own personal experiences.

Another dimension to the show was the street vox pops facilitated by field presenter Phillip Malepa, better known as the Pied Piper of eKasi. Malepa roams the streets looking to get viewers' thoughts on topical issues.

Season 3 featured the addition of two new hosts, a name change and new issues. Pabi Maloi and Dineo Moeketsi joined the returning Tol A$$ Mo, who was a co-host in the first two seasons. Street reporter Phillip Malepa also returned to bring voices from ordinary South African fellows on the street.

The format remains the same as previously, with no topic or issue ioff limits. Pabi, Dineo and Tol A$$ Mo speak about their own viewpoints and personal experiences on the topics at hand.

Eksê Zwakala is produced by Ochre Moving Pictures and Masechaba Media and is recorded at Shine Studios in Braamfontein. uZanenkosi is the series producer with executive producers Stan Joseph, Pulane Boesak and Luxury Msiza.
