SHAKA ILEMBE SERIES
ON THE ICONIC AFRICAN KING
|Shaka Ilembe starts this month|
SIX YEARS IN THE MAKING
Hailed as Multi Choice's biggest ever prime time series it features much of the country’s wildlife and scenery, including the mountains, savanna, and coastline of of KwaZulu Natal, home to the majority of South Africa’s Zulu people. The production has been six years in the making, consulting historians, academics, and family descendants, including the incumbent King Misuzulu ka Zwelithini, Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi, as well as the late King Goodwill Zwelithini. The show should launch June 18th down on Mzansi Magic in Africa. Check out the trailer below, but be warned: there are a lot of naked female boobs in the series and muscly male pelvises, so watch at your own discretion. The series looks quite stylized visually even though the extremely muscly and toned hunks in the cast look too modern for this kind of genre, but we are not really complaining as they offer a stunning site for sore eyes!
