Nicky Greenwall gets up close with celebs like Kelly Khumalo, DJ Sbu, Katlego Maboe, Maps Maponyane and iFani and more. The Close Up season 5 starts Thursday 19 November at 6PM
The series digs deep into the lives of well-known local personalities, their upbringing, their journey to stardom and the impact of fame on their lives.
Each episode features a local celebrity telling their life story in their own words. The stories are compiled from hours of interview footage and coupled with never-before-seen archive material and images of each celebrity before, during and after their rise-to-fame.
“A lot of the celebrities we have on this season are considered controversial, but their stories will hopefully make people understand why they have behaved the way they have in the past.” says Nicky Greenwall, Executive Producer.
“Musicians express themselves through their music.” says Nicky. “But, even so – musicians can still be misunderstood. It’s my hope that these interviews will shed light on the real people behind the personalities audiences have come to believe they know so well.”
Among the other celebrities interviewed in this season includes actor Siv Ngesi, former child star Sade Gilliberti, DJ Mo Flava, and TV presenters Nonhle Thema and Lalla Hirayama.
“We are thrilled to be showcasing yet another in-depth season of The Close Up. It’s going to be an edgy and revealing new season, well done to Nicky Greenwall and her team for this amazing fresh installment.” Says Monde Twala, e.tv Managing Director.
