Season 2

Come Again? is a South African documentary series produced by Tshedza Media in which presenter Ntombi Ngcobo Mzolo visits places with unusual names to find out the stories behind the names and experiences more about the places that bear them.

Motivational speakers often encourage people to never be stuck in situations they were born into. They go further and remind people to remember where they come from.

How important a role does the names of places where we come from play? Nobody ever sits and spends a lot of time worrying and pondering on the names of places they come from being a big deal, unless of course they came from places that have unique names.

Surely those people go through their lives being asked to explain the meanings, history, lifestyles, exact location and many other questions about their homes?

It is one thing to say something and be asked to repeat yourself - it is another thing to say something and expect to be asked to repeat it at all times.

What if South Africans were united in finding what could be uncovered about these "hidden treasures?" The canvass of some might just be a basket of curiosity and surprises for many.

But what do these hidden treasures have in store? Something interesting and unique? The human story never fails, and the presenter mixes an explorative journey of the names of residential areas and the people who live there.

Mzinsangu, Serope sa benya, Emaphupheni, Bodli'ndlala or even Pitsi di sule jang? How about Darling, Nsukangihlale, Gawula and Tsolaborokgo? Now these are names that make most people say: "Come Again?"

Presenter Ntombi Ngcobo Mzolo visits places with unusual names to find out the stories behind the names and experience more about the places.

Through Ntombi engaging with various residential members of each area, the down-to-earth presenter investigates the story behind the name of the area. From the oldest to young residents of the area, most will share their understanding behind the names.

In the first episode, entitled "Maphupheni - A place where dreams are made?": Ntombi goes out on a mission to explore the origin of the name Emaphupheni. While there, she engages the residents on their understanding and the many interesting versions of the origin of the name.

From playing street soccer to getting her nails and hair done, sharing an intimate conversation with the councilor over an interesting lunch, washing cars and sampling the vibe evening of the area, Ntombi stops at nothing in her travel.

The series is produced by Tshedza Media, executive produced by Milly Takalani Mulaudzi and directed by PJ Makosholo.
