As today’s youth faces more choices and struggles than ever before, Isithembiso explores the theme of ‘promise’, a word that encapsulates the hope that comes with being young. There are promises made and broken – promises of a better life, a brighter future, greater life choices. In the show, the idealistic filter through which the young look at life is ripped off to reveal that “all that glitters is not always gold”.

Brought to you by Bomb Productions, who have been serving Mzansi the award-winning soapie Isibaya since 2013, Isithembiso explores themes of innocence, seduction, corruption, and redemption. It will inform and educate the youth on life choices and the responsibility that comes with freedom.

Isithembiso premieres on Mzansi Magic (DStv channel 161) in April.
