We’re not sure who has asked for this, but at the same time, we can see ourselves glued to the screens once it hits the airwaves. It has been reported on Sunday that Hlaudi Motsoeneng – the controversial former SABC executive-turned-politician – has been approached to star in a tell-all reality TV show.

Sunday World confirmed that a TV production company popped the question to Motsoeneng – famous for his erratic behaviour and grandiose speeches – after an embarrassing performance at the 2019 Elections. The leader of the African Content Movement (ACM) gained just 0.03% of the vote, with less than 5 000 people ticking his box.

In the past few days, he has had to contend with allegations that he interfered with the editorial content produced by SABC during his time at the company. He may have rubbished those reports, but it seems that he will be trying to set a few records straight via a reality TV show. So, what can we expect?

Details about a potential Hlaudi Motsoeneng reality show:

What would feature in the show?

It’d be an access-all-areas type of show, which follows Hlaudi through his daily routine. Cameras would be in his house, his workplace and even his vehicles as we get a “Kardashian-style” look into the way he lives his life. One source jokingly told the tabloids it would focus on “whether he wears pyjamas, and what he eats for breakfast”.

Is Hlaudi Motseoneng on board?

He is, but he’s showing a bit of that editorial oversight he denied ever exerting: At the moment, he is “seriously thinking” about doing the show – but has asked producers to make it a documentary about his life. Eish…

Potential broadcast information

Of course, the big questions are the “where, when and how” viewers can tune in to such a show. It has the potential to be both a car-crash and essential viewing all at the same time. Here’s the state of play at the moment:

  • Keabetse Mokoena’s Prosperita Productions are the ones vying for the rights.
  • It is believed that DStv’s Moja Love channel would broadcast any potential show about Hlaudi Motsoeneng.
  • We know that the project is already in “pre-production” – so expect the wheels to get turning very soon.
