Season 1

Lingashoni is a South African telenovela which revolves around a businessman who returns to reclaim his life 10 years after being declared dead.

The series tells the tale of a poverty-stricken farm worker who returns to his former life as a high-flying businessman after a decade-long memory loss.

After witnessing a murder by a prominent politician - Jo'burg Mayor Robert Nondumo (Luzuko Nkqeto), monied 'tenderpreneur' Mandla Cele (Patrick Mofokeng) goes on the run before surviving a murder from a close family member, which led to his memory loss.

After being discovered by Seipati Moeketsi (Liteboho Molise), a farmworker and her two children, along a riverbank, Mandla starts a new life with them as Themba.

Mandla weds Seipati and lives a content life in the farm, until 10 years later when an incident leads to him getting flashbacks of who he really is - Mandla Cele.

The series explores the concept of family, blended family drama, high stakes and the dark underworld of crime and suspense.

The show takes viewers on a journey that sees a man's life go full circle as he returns to his old life in Bassonia.

Mandla has to balance the dynamics of caring for his farm family with those of reconnecting with his children and now estranged first wife Puleng (Thuli Thabethe).

She has since started a new life with the family driver, Mandla's ice boy Papi Zulu (Thato Molamu).

Lingashoni is an M-Net Original Production, co-produced by Stained Glass TV and 1Magic. Gugu Zuma-Ncube, Pepsi Pokane, Mmamitse Thibedi and Theo Moodley are the executive producers.

The series producer is Morishe Matlejoane and the supervising producer for M-Net is Mariki van der Walt.
