Bae Beyond Borders

Bae Beyond Borders follows four South African women who are eager to find themselves a Nigerian man to date and hopefully marry.

As they embark on this unique journey to find love, the women have their pick of 12 Nigerian bachelors from different walks of life. Through online speed dating, they collectively choose eight men who’ve impressed them the most. They then travel to Nigeria to meet them face to face and pick their favourites. Then they’ll head back to South Africa with them – and into a gorgeous villa in Cape Town, to see if they want to move forward together as a couple.

Bae Beyond Borders is executive produced by Zinzi Velelo Alake from POP24, who also produced the record-breaking Showmax Original reality show The Mommy Club. “I created this show because I found love beyond borders myself,” says Zinzi. “I am a South African woman who fell in love with a Nigerian man, and blending our cultures has been life-changing.”
