Kgosi Advertising was established five years ago by Lebo (Khanyi Mbau) and Tumi Kgosi (Phumi Mncayi). It is located in Braamfontein, downtown Johannesburg and has a staff complement of +-15 people.
Five years ago, when it opened its doors, Kgosi Advertising took off with a bang and became very successful, very quickly. This golden period lasted for about three years, but since the economic crisis hit and impacted advertising spend, keeping the office running has become more and more difficult and the agency is now in crisis.
Welcome to the world of Mzansi Love 3, where every person has a love story to tell.
Mzansi Love tells stories of everyday love in Mzansi. From the romantic, butterflies-in-your-tummy experience, to the trials and tribulations of romance that everyone can identify with.
This new format further entrenches the vision behind the Mzansi Love genre, by telling real positive stories from the streets. This production also provides a learning platform and exposure to novice actors and production crews behind the scenes.
