Season 4

A South African born businessman, Jacob's destiny changed forever when he discovered that his biological father was a Nigerian oil baron and head of the powerful Abayomi family. Fuelled by his birthright, Jacob is driven by his dream to create the next great African business empire.

But power and wealth are accompanied by greed and betrayal, and along the way Jacob has to navigate a sometimes treacherous world where his determination, courage and integrity are his only weapons.

Family loyalties are tested, long cherished friendships are put under pressure and at the heart of it all, the balance between professional determination and personal desire are often at odds with one another.  

At the end of Season 3, Jacob was trying to free his mother Thembi from jail whist his Nigerian half-sister Folake's health suddenly failed and glamourous social butterfly Chichi battled to escape the grip of Jacob's menacing half-brother Bola.

Meanwhile Andile, Jacob's South African brother, prepared to sacrifice his freedom in order to set the record straight at Thembi's trial, while a bitter Zanele denies Jacob access to his son.

Prospero Brand, Jacob's best friend makes the connection between little Nozipho's mysterious sickness and a lethal case of missing enriched uranium with the help of the alluring Dr Jones and finally does the unthinkable to get rid of blackmailing business enemy Paul.

The season culminated in a dramatic climax when Bola's attack on Folake leaves Jacob guilt ridden and determined to rid Bola from their lives once and for all.  

In season four, things are looking up for the high-flying Jacob when Trinity, a beautiful fashion designer enters his life, but a shattering business announcement soon sets him on an unexpected personal journey that will change his and the Abayomi's world.

Meanwhile Prospero, struggling to separate from the Brand mining empire puts his relationship with Dr. Jones in jeopardy and a grief-stricken Andile embarrasses himself at a high society Angolan fashion show.
