The Bala Family Returns to Mzansi Magic for another Drama-Filled Season

It was rated by viewers as one of the best reality shows in Mzansi and topped the trends list week after week. Now The Bala Family is set to make a much-anticipated return to Mzansi Magic from August, and this season promises even more family drama.

Siblings Pinky, Zwai, Loyiso and Phelo and their mother, Mama V, will again be taking viewers into their lives. Following the passing of Tata Jafta, family matriarch, Mama Vuyiswa, is taking it upon herself to foster unity between the Bala and Jafta families as a way of honouring his memory. This includes having to provide for his children and especially his grandchildren, a matter which Zwai and Pinky are opposed to.


The siblings are looking at acquiring a family home and as a family, they are united in a decision to purchase a home for Mama V, marking their inaugural family residence. The question remains though; how do they sort out the financial aspect of this plan?


Also, on the cards this season is the decision to revive The Bala Brothers, who haven’t collaborated in years. Some in the family see the group’s reunion as an opportunity to help finance the new family home, while others have other ideas.


“The first season of The Bala Family was a huge success and positively welcomed by our audience. We are excited for the second season and in the same breath, saddened at the loss of Bab’ Jafta who has since passed on,” says Shirley Adonisi, Director for Local Entertainment Channels. “We continue to grieve with the family, honour Bab’ Jafta for his contribution to the show and we dedicate this season to his memory.”


There is so much more to see on this season of The Bala Family so be part of witnessing how they go about navigating their family and individual challenges. The new season premieres on Mzansi Magic, DStv Channel 161 from Sunday 04 August at 19:00.
