Sports Wives S1

Directed by Thumeka Hlotshana (The Real Housewives of Durban S2-3), Sports Wives is a reality show that gives you a front-row seat into the lives of the wives, girlfriends and exes of South Africa’s sporting greats. 

Bomzi September is married to ex-footballer Thabo September, now second assistant coach at his old team SuperSport United. Chrissie Kgamphe-Jane and Tsholo Makgalemele-Mbane are married to Banyana Banyana players Refiloe Jane and Bambanani Mbane respectively. Clarissa Manaças was in a 12-year relationship with Lionel Mapoe, a two-time Currie Cup champion, who played as a utility back for the Springboks and Vodacom Bulls. They have now gone their separate ways, after their 2021 engagement ended earlier this year. Dipuo Maloi has two baby daddies who play soccer – Andile Jali, who has played for Bafana Bafana, Orlando Pirates, Sundowns and now Moroka Swallows, and Lantshene Phalane, his teammate at Moroka Swallows. And Sisanda Cetiywe has a baby with Kennedy Mwene, Zambia’s most capped player, who also kept goal for Sundowns. 

Sports Wives is the first reality show from Ndlovukazi Concepts, who have produced hits such as Cishe Ngafa and Abandoned for Mzansi Magic.
