- The 10-part show will launch on the streaming service in November.
- The show will take a look at his career and personal relationships with his family.
He's the first voice you hear in The Lion King, he's won a Grammy, been nominated for a Tony and now Lebo M is making his reality TV debut.
The producer and composer is currently in production on Lebo M - Coming Home, the next Showmax Original reality series, launching in November.
The 10-part show will give fans a front-row seat to his career as he creates new music with the likes of Zahara, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Judith Sephuma, and his daughter Refi. It will also turn the spotlight onto his biggest dream: bringing his family together.
As the reality show starts, Lebo M is living on an equestrian estate in Blair Athol. He shares the mansion with Angela Ngani-Casara, his third wife; his 90-something mother; and four of his children - Lulo, his five-year-old daughter with Generations: The Legacy star Zoe Mthiyane. Letti, his nine-year-old daughter with Angela and Mthunzi and Ketso Angela's teenage children from previous relationships.
He is also trying to improve his relationship with his four eldest children: Zakiya, Nthabiseng and Refi, who are all still living in the USA, and Tshepiso, his only surviving son, who lives in Midrand and has just become a father himself.
"I was initially sceptical about a reality show," says Lebo M. "But having recently learned no one really knows who I really am in South Africa, my beloved home country of birth, I've become romantic about opening up and having my fans and audience here hang out with Angela and my kids via this conversation in 10 episodes."
As the season progresses, fans will learn more about Lebo M's remarkable life and get inside stories from his legendary career.
This is the third Original reality series this year from Showmax, after Somizi & Mohale: The Union and Life With Kelly Khumalo.
