Ruff Ryders: Chronicles

The definitive story of Ruff Ryders Entertainment.

The five-part production about the iconic hip hop label founded by the Dean brothers Joaquin (Waah), Darin (Dee) and sister, Chivon Dean, will feature interviews with trailblazing artists Swizz Beatz, Eve, DMX, The LOX and more.

Growing up in poverty, Waah and Dee hustled to survive on the rough streets of the South Bronx.

Along with their sister Chivon, they applied the lessons they learned on the block to their fledgling talent management company.

Together, they nurtured artists like DMX, Eve and The Lox, and even started their own label, achieving dizzying heights of success.

The Deans also launched a wildly lucrative lifestyle brand and opened Ruff Ryder Motorcycle chapters across the country, which are still popular today.

Improbably, this astute family, with an ear for gritty urban music, built a 200-million dollar empire.

Thirty years after the founding of the epoch-making label, Ruff Ryders: Chronicles tells the fascinating behind-the-scenes story of what it took to build this company and the extraordinary impact it had on hip hop.

uThando Nes'thembu 4

Follows businessman Musa Mseleku and his four wives as they navigate a polygamous relationship, their family dynamic, staying true to tradition in a modern world and the sisterhood of the wives.

While the wives now maintain a loving and respectful relationship with each other, the journey to peace and harmony was not an easy one.

They each share how they felt at first being introduced into a polygamous marriage, the uncertainty and insecurity that came with the arrangement, heartbreak and eventual acceptance, contentment and forming an unshakable bond with each other.

Season 3 ended with Mseleku's traditional IsiZulu wedding to MaYeni.

Ahead of MaYeni's wedding, Mseleku's wives started showing their true colours and it became clear that his wives did not see eye to eye on certain aspects.

This left their husband struggling to juggle the dynamics of his relationships with them, while also trying to make things better with his eldest daughter, Sne.

Last season he went out of his way to please his wives and make them happy; this included surprising each of them with a brand-new luxury car.

It is back to reality after the third season's fairytale ending and the wives now find themselves wanting to gain more recognition individually, potentially opening doors that they never previously opened.

Prepare to go on a rollercoaster ride as Mseleku's wives give you more of their personalities, hopes and dreams and how that plays out in a polygamous setting.
