From Nemeth/Star Productions - Wiki


Jozi ngaphakathi, means translated from Zulu language, Johannesburg inside. The show focuses on different parts of the city of Johannesburg and close surroundings. The journey through Johannesburg starts always in the southern townships of Soweto and goes up to the north, west and east parts of the town. Telling the story of Johannesburg, the culture and history of South Africa is always a part of the show. The first Season has three episodes.

With the end of the first season, Jozi ngaphakathi, will be included into a new ORIGINAL that covers all parts of South Africa, life style, living, history and future of the country. The new ORIGINAL, named Orbit Mzansi, will cover all aspects of South Africa and represents the country in it's name as well. To not create a competitor to Jozi ngaphakathi both show will be united under one brand.
