Stream Isithembiso on Showmax
Simi and Zamani have left their families behind in rural SA to pursue their dreams and possibly strike it rich in the City of Gold. But all is not as they expected when they get to the big smoke. This gripping and shockingly realistic soap opens our eyes to the real-life issues that face our youth today.

Stream The River on Showmax
The best thing about soap operas/telenovelas is that we never know which way things are going to go. The River offers one of the best examples of the kind of show that keeps you on the edge of your seat and yelling “No, she didn’t!” at the TV. It follows the Dikana family, led by the matriarch Lindiwe, the mining mogul who will not hesitate to throw everyone under the bus if it means keeping – and growing – her substantial wealth, including the residents of poverty stricken Refilwe, the settlement that stands between Lindiwe and her next lucrative discovery.
