Reality shows have been gracing our screens for decades, and we love them for the non-stop hilarity, drama and – above all – craziness they provide. And if there is anything better than a reality show, it is a homegrown reality show. The African entertainment industry has stepped up by creating award-winning original reality shows and by giving some of our favourites a uniquely African twist. If you haven’t already, take the time to watch and discover the magic for yourself.
