Popular South African award-winning actress, choreographer, TV host and the first South African to release a fitness DVD, Khabonina Qubeka, has bagged herself a new gig on BET Africa. Khabonina has been announced as the presenter of new BET’s Fix My Love reality TV show.
On the show the Isidingo actress, with the support of clinical psychologist and councilor, Dr Khosi Jiyane, will be fixing broken relationships.
“For Fix My Love I intend on bring honesty and genuineness because as an avid viewer of reality emotainment shows, often I find myself wishing that the host could have come from an honest place or sounded more genuine. Often hosts are chasing something else and completely miss the genuineness of the context being shared by the guest and I hope I won’t be that person,” Khabonina said.
Each episode will see audiences first getting to know the couple by hearing about the highs and happiest moments in their lives together, before the full and intense story of what went wrong is revealed through their intimate introspection.
The couple is then sent off on a ‘one night to save your life’ mission, where they go on a dinner date to explore whether they can fix their love. Intense discussions, burning questions and a surprise twist await them to find out if they will give their love another chance, or face the reality to call it quits.
“BET is committed to local content that entertains and makes a difference in our viewers lives. Fix My Love is a great new addition to our local programming and will resonate strongly with BET audiences across Africa.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Khabonina to our family and I am confident she will be loved and make a great success of this fresh local series,” says Monde Twala, Vice President for BET, Youth and Music for Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN Africa).
Fix My Love premieres on May at 9pm on BET (DStv channel 129).
