Mzansi Magic’s new drama ‘Abomama’ premieres tonight


Are you read for the season one premiere of Abomama tonight?

The drama centers on the ideas of faith and sin when four close women are sucked into the criminal underworld and forced to turn their stokvel into a money-laundering scheme.

The drama begins when Thabang (Kgosi Mongake), the brother of soft-spoken Mapule (Nokuthula Ledwaba) is arrested, for the umpteenth time, but this time tells her he has hidden R2 million away for her and his daughter to use. Unbeknownst to Mapule, the money belongs to Bonanza (Kenneth Nkosi), local heist king and butcher, who Thabang has now double crossed. Mapule takes the news to her prayer group and stokvel ladies, where Fumane (Joyce Skefu) the pastor’s wife comes up with the plan to use the evil money to do good.

Kanye Mbau, Joyce Skefu and more star in Abomama, which premieres TONIGHT, starting @ 8PM PM on Mzansi Magic.
