Uyanda Its On
A window into Uyanda Mbuli’s journey of turning a lifestyle of success into a legacy of global significance
Uyanda It’s On is a fresh, exclusive peek into the fast-paced, jet-setting lifestyle of media and entertainment entrepreneur, Uyanda Mbuli, as she expands and deepens the roots of her growing lifestyle and entertainment brand beyond the African continent. Uyanda It’s On will broadcast on SABC 3, from Wednesday, 5th April 2017 at 21h00.
Over the course of two 13-part episodes of Seasons 1 & 2 that will be aired for 30 minutes on SABC 3 through licensing arrangement between the SABC and the Uyanda Mbuli Corporation. The show will allow audiences to catch-up with Uyanda as she moves between different international fashion and entertainment capitals including Johannesburg, Miami, New York and many others, building and nurturing the relationships that underpin her quest to translate the success of her relationships and lifestyle brand into authentically African, global significance in business and philanthropy.
While the show will unapologetically carry the aspirational themes that naturally go with Uyanda’s high-flying lifestyle, it is also premised on educating, informing and broadening the horizons of local audiences who will live this aspect out through the real-life experiences of Uyanda’s trainees and protégés. Just as a diamond’s beauty is accentuated by the light reflecting on it from various angles, so too, the beauty of Uyanda’s personality and lifestyle shines under the glare of the celebrity spotlight that the show places on the various dimensions of her personality along with her successes and failures, triumphs and blunders allowing the audience to grow as she grows, laugh as she laughs, cry as she cries and weave their dreams out of her experiences as she truly makes the world her oyster.
The show explores on a number of factors including Uyanda’s focus on empowering young like Tshepo Matlou whom Uyanda has groomed to be a TV Producer and young business people like Lindokuhle and Simiso who run a catering business called 'Yo Balance' using trainee chefs at the International Hotel School in Sunninghill. Uyanda mentors her Uyanda Mbuli Corporation team to run a productive and efficient business.
Uyanda Mbuli is no stranger to the SABC and the South African public at large who have continued to follow her exclusive lifestyle on social media. Not only is she the former Publicity Manager for SABC1, she was also part of the management team that drove the channel’s 2005 brand repositioning from YaMampela to Mzansi4Sure. She has also been a mainstay public personality and A-lister gracing red carpet events and rubbing shoulders with South African media, entertainment, business and political elite and – for her sins – having her life being used as tabloid fodder. Today, she maintains her unique and vibrant personality and status as a fashion iconoclast but also cuts a more refined figure as CEO of Uyanda Mbuli Corporation chiseled by maturity, life experience and lessons learnt.
If you want to watch Uyanda’s fast-paced, jet-setting lifestyle then tune into Uyanda It’s On every Wednesday at 21h00 starting 5th April, 2017, on SABC 3 “The Stage Is Yours”.
