Media personality and businesswoman, Relebogile Mabotja, has announced a new video series, Unpacked with Relebogile Mabotja, launching next Tuesday, 17 November 2020 at 4pm SAST on YouTube. 

The 13-episode series will air weekly on Tuesdays at 4pm SAST unpacking real life, human interest stories in a candid and unfiltered manner. In the Season 1 premiere of Unpacked with Relebogile Mabotja, we meet actress and presenter Mari Molefe van Heerdan, a young black woman who identifies as a white person. Raised by Afrikaner parents, Mari’s views on culture and tradition have been shaped by her upbringing. Join Relebogile Mabotja as she explores transracial adoption and identity.

The hard-hitting series will also tackle conversations around what it means to be a transgender person in South Africa, being raised in exile, coming out whilst married, the ins and out of the male Adult Entertainment industry, the not so funny side of being a female comedian and much more.

“I’ve missed the long form of talk I got to do on radio and grew up watching on television so I’m excited to unpack real stories and experiences of ordinary South Africans through conversations and topics that don’t get fully addressed and sometimes get brushed under the carpet and to do so in this unrestricted video format. Unpacked with Relebogile Mabotja is raw, unfiltered, and long overdue in the South African media landscape. I can’t wait for everyone to finally join me on my new endeavour,” – Relebogile Mabotja.
