Men discussing love‚ sex and relationships? That is the reason Khaya Dladla insists his show has the winning formula. And, for your child’s ears‚ The Man Council‚ is aired late at night. Cause‚ adult content!
“The content of the show is amazing. One of the reasons I am part of the show is because it tackles those taboo topics around sex‚ love and dating that everyone wants to talk about‚ but ends up avoiding. The show also plays very late because kids should be asleep‚ it’s that kind of a show‚” Khaya said.
The Uzalo actor is joined by radio presenters TBose and Naked DJ. Khaya clarified that the dialogs would not be deep enough to freak people out‚ however‚ the men and their guests do take part in a meaningful debate.
The producer of the show‚ Relebogile Mabotja‚ who doubles up as a radio presenter on 702‚ enchoed Khaya’s words. She included that although the topics may get a few people off guard‚ the way they are talked about the topics would win fans over.
Relebogile said they began the pilot on Facebook live to see how people would receive a talk show hosted by men and one where no issue is off limits.
“We wanted to prove that in reality‚ men also have issues around love‚ sex and relationships. There are already many platforms where women are able to discuss such things and to help each other‚ but they haven’t been readily available for men. So we created this platform with them in mind.”
