SABC1’s new lifestyle show Ikas’Lami explores the background of our local celebrities as they take viewers into their township adventure. Ikas’Lami will air every Wednesdays starting on 5 January 2022 at 18:00 CAT.
Kope “Mrekza” Makgae is the host of the show that follows local celebrities in the Kasi that they are from. The show zooms in on who they were before all the glitz and glam, identifying the places, people, and experiences that shaped them while diving into the past and present culture of that Kasi.
Each week the journey begins with the show host in a taxi, picking up the guest celebrity, and they drive to where the guest was born and raised.
Our guest celebrities take us on their journey to their Kasi arched in their memories and introduce us to their childhood lifestyle, including food and popular games such as umgusha, amaTin, and iTop. They give us a bit of background of what their Kasi was like when they were growing up compared to the present. We visit local traders who’ve played a role in transforming and positively impacting iKasi.
The celebrities featured include Actress Innocent Sadiki from Mamelodi Podcaster Sol Phenduka from Tembisa, Entrepreneur Theo Baloyi from Alexandra, Chef Nthabiseng Ramaboa known as Chef Nti from Tladi in Soweto, and Veteran Actor Jerry Mofokeng wa Makhetha from Orlando in Soweto.
