Director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net, Shirley Adonisi says, “Our reality slate at Mzansi Magic is unmatched, and we’re pleased to expand the different worlds we give our viewers”
“The taxi industry is a key component of South African life, yet beyond the headlines, very little is known about some of the people who run it. It’s exciting to give our viewers a reality show that intimately documents those in the industry,” she says.

WHAT ARE THEIR STORIES?
The first person to be a part of the show is Nthabiseng Keroane, a widowed taxi boss and entrepreneur.
“Nthabiseng took over the family business following her husband’s death. It hasn’t been easy, not only due to it being a male-dominated industry, but also because she was never involved in the business while her husband was alive, so she’s had to learn everything from scratch after his death,” said Mzansi Magic.
Nthabi, as she is affectionately known, is also a Tik Tok sensation that boasts over 90 00 followers. Today, she took viewers behind the scenes of the show and so far, it has been a warm reception.
The viewers will also meet the Biyela twin brothers, Lindokuhle and Zakhele, who have more than 20 children between them and are navigating several co-parenting relationships.
“Having fled for their own safety from Empangeni, we will see them handling the taxi business despite the absence of their third business partner, their brother”.
The last person to join the show is Sabelo Ndaba, who has survived multiple attempts on his life, one of which left him in a wheelchair.
Mzansi Magic explains that Sabelo is a farm owner with dozens of cows. The Mpumalanga-based boss is also juggling his polygamous lifestyle, while trying to deal with the mother of his child, who is limiting access to the little one.
