South African hip-hop artist, AKA, is set to star in the new reality show, 2 Weddings And A Superstar, where he will be surprising unsuspecting couples at their wedding reception.
In a statement issued by DStv today, 15 August 2019, the Lifetime show will see AKA surprising and serenading two bridal couples at their wedding reception.
The couples, who were carefully selected from a range of AKA’s die-hard fans, will be completely unaware that their wedding day will see one of South Africa’s biggest musicians perform for their guests. The show is set to premiere on Monday, 9 September 2019, and will be a once-off special produced by Okuhle Media.
AKA stated, “I have made some music and drawn some inspiration in terms of the style in some of the songs that I’ve made, that are kind of tailor-made for weddings. So, it’s a cool experience for me to be able to enhance somebody’s big day in this way. Hopefully for our couples, their weddings are going to be something they will remember in a really positive light for the rest of their lives.”
2 Weddings And A Superstar will kick off Lifetime’s first Wedding Week, which will showcase a range of other wedding-related shows, such as Four Weddings, Bridezilla and Marrying Millions. Head of Programming at A+E Networks Africa, Fatime Kaba, stated, “From AKA crashing weddings to a long list of brand new and exclusive wedding-themed reality shows and movies, viewers will get to experience all the highs and lows associated with tying the knot, as only Lifetime can deliver.”
2 Weddings And A Superstar premieres on Monday, 9 September 2019 on Lifetime, DStv channel 131.
