Love & Hip Hop South Africa (SA) is set to take MTV Africa by storm this Valentine’s month as the lives of some of South Africa’s most beloved Hip Hop artists are revealed. The global reality show franchise, known for showcasing the highs and lows of Hip Hop stardom, is set to premiere on February 27th at 21:30 PM CAT on MTV Africa, DStv Channel 130.

The 13-episode series promises to be nothing short of explosive as the local adaptation delves deep into the entertainment industry’s latest beef, drama, and gossip. The cast, led by Hip Hop recording artist and record producer Da L.E.S, award-winning Hip Hop star Gigi Lamayne, and Utatakho hit-maker Yanga Chief, will give viewers a front-row seat to their personal struggles, industry goals, achievements, and deepest temptations.

Joining them on this rollercoaster ride is Shane Eagle, a South African Music Award winner for Best Hip Hop Album in 2018, who will share some saucy secrets about his 12-year romance with artist and model Nicole ‘Nikki’ Swartz. Mayo hitmaker, Hip Hop culturalist and broadcaster DJ Speedsta, and Motswako First Lady, Fifi Cooper, add their names to the reality star cast. Sensational starlet Money Badoo and outspoken rapper, singer, and songwriter J Molley, who is never too shy to stir the pot with his opinions, also feature in the series.
