A new drama series filled with corruption, violence and a bit of romance was launched this year keeping us at the edge of our seats on sundays.

This show launched in April this year is about a family that runs their own wedding company. Some of our country's top actors came together for this new show.
Another year, a new exciting season of Idols was one TV show that got every South African viewer stoked! We got to appreciate more of what the country has to offer in terms of SA talent, to go into the music space.
