Season 1

Jika Majika is a South African music and dance show created by Thabo Mphelo and produced by Next Door Media that showcases the outrageous dance styles of Mzansi, giving the South African youth a platform to showcase their dance moves whilst highlighting the top 10 local songs of the week.

The music dance show speaks to the current times, whilst acknowledging our history musically and with the art of dancing.

24 minutes of the show are spent with local dancers showcasing their Chincha-magiya, Ice moves, C slash, Gcopetsa, Kick & Boboz, Bhenga and free styles, while the DJs pump the freshest local sounds.

Abo majivane go head to head...hip to hip...heel to heel...toe to toe, trying to out-dance each other in this television music dance contest.

In each episode, six dancers (abo majivane) are selected from the audience to take on each other, until one of them out-dances the rest. The selection is done by a guest choreographer/artist/musician and experienced dancers - live in the studio.

The selected dancers take on each other on the dance floor. Two dancers are eliminated in the first two segments, after which the last two take on each other in the last segment to get the winner of the day.

The guest artist or choreographer does the elimination of the dancers whilst giving feedback on their performance.

The show's philosophy is that dancing is not about winning - it's about showing off your skills and pride. It still opens up opportunities to be recognised by artists or choreographers and for the musician to get their music videos, however.

The guest artists and musicians also have an opportunity to talk about themselves on the show and they nominate their Mzansi Top Ten Songs and Top Ten Music Videos of the week.
