Kenyan born content creator Rachel Wakesho Mwangemi joins four other women on HONEY TV’s Pan African talk show The Buzz.
Rachel Wakesho Mwangemi is a creative and passionate content creator, a hands-on mom and a wife. Born and bred in Kenya, she loves her home country but has found a second home in South Africa for the past 10 years.
She is passionate about creating content and The Buzz has aligned beautifully with her goal to find an outlet for all the facets that make her who she is, beyond being a mother and a wife.
For Rachel, the show is about highlighting the day-to-day life of many Africans, and sharing views on relationships, motherhood and everyday challenges people face. It has energed into an eye-opener both for the five women on the panel and the people who will be watching at home.
“The Buzz is a talk show with women having conversations about issues that affect us. You know, especially in Africa there are some topics that are seen as taboo, but we’re talking about them and creating a safe space that tells our audience that it’s okay to talk about these things,” says Rachel.
“I love the vibe of the women! I feed off people’s energy and the environment on set is always so positive and the women are all happy to be here,” she beams.
The new season of The Buzz which will be hosted by South africa’s Anele Mdoda is even more delightful because of its intelligent and humorous panelists. Zimbabwe’s Davina Mavuwa, Kenya’s Rachel Mwangemi, Nigeria’s Pearl Umeh and the DRC’s Zanna Katoka, all bring bits of their home countries to the studio. The women also get to vote on the viewers’ dilemmas, making for even more interesting insights. The women of The Buzz are the girlfriends you know, or wish you knew. They bring real, honest, heart-felt, jaw dropping and witty conversations to your homes.
Rachel is proud of the narrative The Buzz is going to bring about. Not only does it allow hard conversations to take place, but it sets out to challenge certain generations-old stereotypes about Africans and people from different countries on the continent. “I’m from East Africa and where I’m from, most things aren’t talked about. The show allows me to become a voice for the generation that’s changing things.”
The Buzz is a pan-African talk show in its fifth season on DStv’s brand new channel, HONEY TV. The new season premieres on the 26th of May 2021. HONEY TV, launched in mid-February as a celebration of the pan-African lifestyle.
