1Magic to premiere new reality series, Oh Baby, hosted by Olwethu Leshabane

South African broadcasting channel, 1Magic, is set to premiere its latest reality series, Oh Baby, which documents expectant mothers as they prepare for their baby showers.  

The series, which premieres tonight, 25 October 2019, will be hosted by Olwethu Leshabane, who will be documenting the planning process of the baby showers, which will be planned by the expectant mother’s closest family and friends. Each episode will focus on one baby shower, and will be judged by the host and a different celebrity mom. Olwethu stated in the trailer, “Baby showers are a tradition for a reason. Every week, a different celebrity mom will join me in scoring the moms-to-be and their planning committees, and will decide who has the best baby shower in Mzansi.”

According to a statement released by Mzansi Magic on Thursday, 24 October 2019, the series will follow the high and low points of the planning process, as friends and family attempt to meet all of the mom’s expectations. Olwethu and the celebrity mom will be judging the baby shower based on the following criteria; execution, enthusiasm, games, resilience and mom-to-be’s happiness.

Producer of the show, media personality, Anele Mdoda, has avidly promoted the series on her social media pages, stating in a post shared on Tuesday, 22 October 2019, “This coming Friday, Oh Baby goes around the country cracking an invite to your baby showers. Follow the WhatsApp group, the ever-dwindling planning committees, family traveling from around the country, the highs, the love-filled moments and the celebration of life!”
