For an update on the broadcast times of this show, please see the comments below.
SABC1 premieres a new breakfast show called Vuka Mzansi this Saturday (21 November) at 09h00, sandwiched between YOTV's Big Breakfast at 08h00 and Mzansi Insider at 10h00.
It was scheduled to start on Saturday, 7 November
but was rescheduled so let's hope it starts timeously this time round!
It's supposed to air on Fridays too but the details of this haven't been confirmed yet. In other words, it's suffering a hangover when it comes to its timing - we'll keep you posted.
The hosts are Uzalo actor Nkanyiso Makhanya (Njeza) and Nomalanga Shozi, who first claimed her TV fame when she won the role of Nomalanga on Rhythm City
through the show's online open casting call.
The most notable difference between Vuka Mzansi and the breakfast servings that surround it: it's appealing to an older age range.
It's for young (ish) adults aged between 21 and 35-or-so and describes itself as "a tall glass of freshly squeezed fun and entertainment."
Word from SABC1 and the production is that it aims to bridge the gap between people in this age group from all walks of life and socio-economic backgrounds.
Described by the show like so:
A young 21-year-old seeking employment in rural Limpopo will relate to Vuka Mzansi as being an aspirational TV breakfast show that informs them of various ways to upgrade their lives and pull themselves out of poverty.
Whilst a 21-year-old graduate from Johannesburg will find the show to be a vital tool in making the correct decisions on their exciting journey into theircareer life.
Not leaving out 25, 30 and 35-year-olds, Vuka Mzansi will edutain them about health, the fourth Industrial Revolution, the workplace, relationships, entrepreneurship and building a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
Topics and segments on the show include fitness routines, celebrity guest interviews, sports-talk, tourism, health education, performances and food.
