Season 2

Set in the small town of Hammanskraal, this sitcom unfolds in an old bakery that has been turned into a small independent music studio.

Having failed to crack it in the fast paced music industry in JHB, and being reduced to writing and producing jingles, Mojalefa "Jingles" Mohapi (Stephen Manaka) returned to Hammanskraal a year and a half ago to attend the funeral of his beloved mentor.

A year and a half later, he is now the proud owner of Majakathata Records, a record company that is struggling to get by but is filled with love, energy and the hope that even a small town like Hammanskraal can produce a talent to rival Zahara.

Accompanying Jingles on his journey to uncover the next diamond in the rough is Mathapelo Tlholoe (Maki Mokhitli), a meek, shy 28-year-old who has been employed by Jingles as a receptionist. Little does Jingles know, not only does the timid Mathapelo run the company, she is the songbird he keeps searching for.

Joining her is Khanya (Tshepo Hlatswayo), a young, vibrant engineer, who believes he is a ahead of his time. Constantly pitching new beats to Jingle, Khanya is obsessed with technology and knows for a fact that he is going to be the next P Diddy.

TT (Phoenix Baaitse) is the resident musician who's been working on his own album for 10 years now. Having journeyed from the Limpopo, on his way to Joburg, he stopped in Hammanskraal and never left.

Unbeknownst to him, Mathapelo is head over heels for him, but with the amount of women throwing themselves at him, how could he know?

And keeping Jingles on the straight and narrow is Ous Dips (Sibongile Nojila), Jingles' mentor's widow, a woman who's known him for years, and won't stand for any nonsense.

Packed with supporting characters and an array of special guest stars, Majakathata is a wholesome comedy that will be eaten up by the entire family.

In this first episode of season 2, Jingles is neglecting Majakathata Records, but has to get his mojo back when Nkadimeng threatens to take over the studio and turn it into a Funeral Parlour.

Khanya faces troubles of his own when he discovers it's time for him to go to the mountains...
