Busiswa had been in the music industry for over six years under Kalawa Jazmee before launching her own label.
BET Africa is honouring International Women’s month by airing Busiswa Gqulu‘s reality TV programme, Her Majesty: Busiswa. It will be available on BET Africa on Saturday, March 20 at 19:30 CAT.
Busiswa made history when she worked on Beyoncé‘s highly acclaimed music album Black is King.
The 13-part local reality TV series will serve as a visual companion to Gqulu’s musical journey. It’s an ode to her lasting power and a celebration of her authenticity. The show captured Gqulu’s journey in creating a visual album curated by her.
The cameras will closely follow her as she opens her life to viewers across the continent.
Speaking about the show, Senior Vice President and General Manager at ViacomCBS Networks Africa and BET International Lead, Monde Twala, said: “It’s so inspiring to bring another local black female-led reality TV series to the channel. The series will give viewers an intimate exclusive glimpse into the world of one of Africa’s leading queen of song. BET Africa is proud to continue celebrating Black excellence on the continent and we are committed to bringing African audiences’ content that is culture-led, bold, and relevant”.
Busiswa added: “I am excited to partner with BET Africa, a brand that continuously celebrates black culture and excellence globally, I look forward to sharing my truth, whereas over the years I have been reluctant to share anything. But I have learned that it’s more important to own my story, and am willing to let my fans into the next level that is my private and spiritual life.”
