KAMPALA | LIFESTYLE UGANDA ( — In the American series Love & Hip Hop: Lineage to Legacy, due to premiere on VH1 in the US on Monday, 7 February, two South African artists will appear: Busiswa Gqulu and Nomcebo Zikode.

  • ‘Love & Hip Hop: Lineage to Legacy’ has yet to announce its African screening dates.

The special two-part show features Busiswa and Nomcebo Zikode working with members of the “Love & Hip Hop” and “Black Ink Crew” franchises about their roots and ancestry.

There is a special appearance by the Liberian celebrity chef Chauncy Yarngo, and American artists Remy Ma, Papoose, Yandy Smith-Harris, Rich Dollaz, Tokyo Vanity, Paris Phillips, Karlie Redd and Momma Dee are also on the show.

Busiswa said her role in the show was to meet with African American artists and share her experience of what it is like to “know your lineage, clan names, heritage, culture, and to be able to make music in your native language, isiXhosa, as opposed to how they struggle to even know the lineage of their grandparents.”

In the show, Busiswa was to meet with African American artists and discuss how it feels to “know my lineage, clan names, heritage, culture and be able to make music in my native language, Xhosa, and what it’s like to know that in contrast to how they struggle to even know the lineage of their grandparents.”

“I am so excited to be part of this two-part show because it’s about African ancestry and the cast finding their lineage including myself,” she said.

“I am happy to be a part of this because everyone knows how proud I am to be an African girl who reaches all parts of the world and now gets to be a part of one of the biggest reality franchises in the world.”

The show’s executive producer, Mona Scott-Young, approached Busiswa while she was on a six-week tour in the US late last year.

She performed at eight events including Afro Carnival, One World Global Music Festival, and another where she opened for Nigerian singer Wizkid.

“I got on her [Mona Scott-Young‘s] radar while I was in the US and also her knowing my work from the feature with Beyoncé must have had its part,” she said. “My scenes were shot on location in Atlanta and the entire shoot was amazing and such a great experience to meet all of the cast and to learn tricks of the trade from Mona Scott-Young as someone who really plans to go much deeper into broadcasting and hopefully be able to do a second season of my reality show Her Majesty: Busiswa with BET.”

Additionally, the ‘Bazoyenza’ star will take center stage at the inaugural Afro Nation Puerto Rico festival alongside Megan Thee Stallion and many other African artists this March.
