Season 2


My Brother's Keeper is a South African television soap opera which tells the tale of a family drawn into a deadly succession battle of its own making, exploring how far people will go in their quest for power and acceptance.

Every family has secrets and family members who are all about self-preservation, and that couldn't be truer than the Shabalala family.

When we were first introduced to the family in Season 1, it was plagued by scandals from the get-go, including the death of two sons (one by the father's hand), ukungenwa of one of the wives, infidelity, hostage drama and ultimately a not-so-happy wedding.

In Season 2, Donga - the son who hasn't played an active role in the family business, ShabaSnacks - locks horns with his father, as he is drawn and forced to intervene and try to save the family business before it falls.

That in turn makes Donga a formidable threat to the power balance in the family as it seems he is the only one that has the power and currency to do so.

What of Nqubeko and his dream to be at the helm of ShabaSnacks and does he remain ivezandlebe as he has always been referred to by the man he calls uBaba?

On the other hand, Mshengu is exposed by Nqubeko that he was the one who pulled the plug on Khwezi's life support at the start of the series.

All this because he found out Mshengu was behind the collapse of his venture to start his own business away from his father's grip.

And of course, Fakazile - "the angry makoti" - will be turning the tables on the family, challenging some of the preserved cultural practices which will send Mshengu into a tailspin.

Not only her, the other makotis are also up to something and individually taking a stand to assert a certain level of independence within the family.

But how do they do it and is it in the best interest of the Shabalalas - or is it self-serving?

My Brother's Keeper is based on a concept by Duma Ndlovu and Tshepo Ya Rona Mamatu and is produced by Rhythm World Productions.

The executive producer is Duma Ndlovu and the Season 2 series producer is Carmel Khambule.

The Season 2 director is Siyabonga Godfrey Dlamini and the head writer is Nonthuthuzelo Magoxo.
