Media Personality, Unathi Nkayi, Returns To Mzansi Magic for Festive Get-Together


South Africa’s favourite festive season special, The Festive Get-Together in The Life Artois, is back on our screens this month with much-loved media personality, Unathi Nkayi, again taking on hosting duties as she puts the spotlight on eight celebrities over the weekly, four-episode series.

Season three of the popular show, presented by Stella Artois, premieres on November 17th, and runs through to December 8th, every Thursday at 21h30 on Mzanzi Magic, DSTV channel 161.

In the TV special, top celebrity pairs recount their journeys to success over a special meal while sharing the challenges of getting together and connecting with loved ones in their busy lives. In each episode, Unathi is joined by a different South African chef, to create dishes for the celebrity guests that invoke memories of love for their family and friends.

“I’ve loved hosting the show for the past two years and this season we’re excited that there will be a variety of surprise new elements. Not to mention who will reveal their lessons learned on balancing life, love, friendships, and everything in-between,” said Unathi Nkayi.

Last year, season two of Festive Get-Together in The Life Artois was a big Mzanzi Magic hit, with celebrity guests including power media pals Minnie Dlamini & Melanie Bala; supercouple Kuli Chana and Lamiez Holworthy; popular digital content creators, the Mqoco Sisters (Yoliswa and Nandipha) and multi-talented foodie friends Maps Maponyane and J’Something. A stand-out “Stella moment” was when both of Maps and J’s moms arrived on set, soon after the friends had been discussing their road to success, of which their mothers have played pivotal roles. 

“With The Festive Get-Together our intention is for our much loved guests to sit down, break bread, share a Stella Artois and Make Time for the people who matter most. In doing so, we hope to inspire our audiences to do the same this festive season. After all, the best present, is being present!” says Estee Burger, Marketing Manager: Stella Artois.

Says Shirley Adonisi, Director of Local Entertainment Channels at Mzanzi Magic: ‘’For two seasons The Festive Get-Together has so resonated with our audience that we ran it again on Mzansi Magic and Mzansi Wethu early in the new year. With a host of new elements this season, we’re looking forward to an even bigger success while spreading love and connection over the holidays.”

After each episode, exclusive content will also be made available to inspire viewers when making time hosting their friends and family at home. Viewers can access selected recipes from each show on or via Instagram and Twitter, as well as curated The Festive Get-Together in The Life Artois Playlists on Spotify, which include each celebrity pair’s favourite holiday tunes.
