Vuzu is about breaking boundaries and in a South African television first, Running with the Reps fans can look out for a reunion show next week Wednesday, 23 May at 19:30.
Before the premiere of season two in February 2012 Larry “Larryngitis” Mncube-Nhlane, co-founder of the dance crew, promised that viewers would be entertained by “some of the best footage to come out of South Africa. There will be more drama, more dancing and viewers will see the Reps become an even bigger entity,” a promise well kept.
Now that the show has wrapped and the boys have been out of the mansion for a while, Vuzu brings them back together for a 30 minute reunion special hosted by Dineo Ranaka who will be launching her reality show on the channel titled Dineo’s Diary: A Mogul in the Making later on in the year.
Under Dineo’s watchful eye we delve into a variety of issues that have touched the crew. Season 1 ended with Nthato “Taydos” Malete leaving the crew after receiving a blow from Thabiso “TJ” Mkhwanazi. Season 2 saw Taydos return to the crew, and amongst the fighting and partying which threatened to destroy the group, he stepped up to his initial role as leader of the Reps where he had to make some tough decisions.
Viewers will also get to hear from Larry, the emotional journey he went through and eventually shed some light on why he stepped down as Reps leader.
An emotional outburst from Mike sheds some light on what has been really going on with Senhle “Chama” Mazibuko as well as his future with the crew… if there is one?
A reunion show would not be complete without never-before-seen footage and with an entertaining bunch like the Reps, there is bucket loads of riveting viewing!
