New drama series: Ingoma

Ingoma

Drama series which follows three aspiring artists from the Eastern Cape town of Alice, who are lured to Cape Town by businessman and record label owner Leo Black by the promise of breaking into the industry via his label, Platinum Records.

With a tagline that asks "what is the cost of your dreams?", music industry exploitation is at the heart of the series.

The naive youngsters - Sino, Ezekiel and Angel - soon find themselves immersed in a shiny new world, with the promise of glamour, wealth and extravagance.

Of course... as we all know, this cutthroat world is as full of promises as it is lies, and it is soon revealed that Leo Black's intentions are not as savoury as what the group were first led to believe.

Sino sees the move to Cape Town as her last resort for success, with her family back in Alice relying on her for financial support. But when a member of her band strikes a deal with Leo Black, her future - and that of her family - is in jeopardy.

Ingoma is produced by Paw Paw Productions.

Interesting how Oros has carved a niche for himself in musical TV... we really need a full-on local musical drama series crammed with action-punctuating original songs and music.
