Thato Molamu to host Abazali, a new reality show that will see him help parents who are being denied access to their children for whatever reason being allowed to have a relationship with them.
Molamu, who has also starred in Mzansi Magic hit telenovelas The Queen and Greed and Desire, will, as the show’s host, fulfil a role of someone who intervenes in an impasse between two parents – one who is being denied access to their child and the one who, for their own reasons, refuse to allow the alienated parent an opportunity to be part of their child’s life.
“In a show that puts the interests of the children first, Abazali is a show of pain and denied love that will reverberate across the nation as viewers are let in on family dynamics that ensue when a parent tries all in their power to gain access to their children in broken relationships with their partner. This highly emotive reality show will lay bare the lived experiences of most of our viewers,” – Nomsa Philiso, the director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net
The 13-part reality show will play on Mzansi Wethu and will seek to ensure that in a conflict between abazali (parents), the interests of the child are safeguarded. It will see Molamu first meeting with the alienated parent and the person who is refusing their partner access to the child separately, before the confrontation is allowed on camera between the two parents with a way forward coming at the end.
Catch Abazali on Mzansi Wethu, DStv channel 163 from 10 April 2021 at 19:30pm.
