Introducing Thando Thabethe, the Executive Producer

Season one of 'Unstoppable Thabooty' will see the 'How to Ruin Christmas' star, businesswoman, 947 breakfast host and now turned television producer declutter her life in pursuit of simpler living.

"This show is especially dear to my heart as it is my debut as an executive producer under Redwood Productions, which I co-own with Tumi Maimela. My wish is that Unstoppable Thabooty inspires young Black people in particular to know their worth and seize their power.”

South Africa’s much-loved media personality and broadcaster, Thando ‘Thabooty’ Thabethe, shared these words ahead of the much-awaited premiere of her new reality TV show, Unstoppable Thabooty, which will air exclusively on BET Africa (DStv channel 129) in April.

In addition to exploring what makes her a household name on and off screen, the show sees the trailblazing South African entrepreneur, actress and 947 radio host take up a new role as the executive television producer of the show, under Redwood Productions.

The show will take viewers into the incredible journey of how her illustrious television started, and explore how she owns her throne in her day-to-day life away from the mic and the movie cameras, revealing in the process just why this multi-talented young woman has become a much-loved role model to her tribe.

The 947 breakfast presenter shared this on Twitter last October, as she introduced to her 2-million plus followers, her new TV production company, Redwood Productions.

“I’m no stranger to the cameras, but reality show is a completely different ball game,” she says, adding: “But I’m beyond excited to bring viewers into my world, showing them who the real Thando is and what she does away from the public eye. Hopefully they’ll be as entertained as I was while making the show! This show is especially dear to my heart as it is my debut as an executive producer under Redwood Productions, which I co-own with Tumi Maimela. My wish is that Unstoppable Thabooty inspires young Black people in particular to know their worth and seize their power.”

‘Unstoppable Thabooty’ will, adds Monde Twala, peer lead at BET International, unveil a different side to this go-getting African icon, inspiring those who have followed her career to date. “Intimate, revealing and insightful, viewers will discover what makes Thando Thabethe unstoppable – and we are delighted to be embarking on this new venture with her,” Twala says.

Season one of ‘Unstoppable Thabooty‘ will see the ‘How to Ruin Christmas’ star, and the brains behind the Thabooty’s lingerie brand decluttering her life in pursuit of simpler living.

Also featured is her friend Given Baloyi, a radio content producer, along with her childhood friend Mantsoe “Pout” Tsatsi, who is on a stratospheric journey of her own in the radio industry; as well as TV and film producer Tumi Maimela, whom Thando holds dear as a confidante and business partner. 

Plus, we’ll meet her sister Sanele Thabethe, a fashion designer, creative director and buyer at Thabooty’s; and her mom, Sibongile Thabethe, a businesswoman in her own right.

Make sure you catch the ‘Unstoppable Thabooty‘ as it airs exclusively on BET (DStv 129) from Saturday, April 15 at 7.30pm. Repeats are on Sundays at 6pm.
