In a one-off BBC One special, a decade after she left home, Oti Mabuse is going back to her country of birth to show us her South Africa.
It is a country that she feels is often misunderstood and she will show us a land of beauty, diversity, and hope.
Oti will travel across the country starting at the nostalgic and familiar landscape of her childhood in Mabopane near Pretoria. She will follow roads she has travelled with her family, meet old and new friends, and complete a road trip full of surprises.
Oti Mabuse, says: “To be asked by the BBC to do my very own documentary about something that is so close to my heart is an absolute privilege and I am deeply humbled...
"I can’t wait to show the viewers where I grew up and take them on the journey that got me to where I am today. I truly hope they love South Africa like I do.”
Oti’s South African Odyssey (1x60’) is produced by Plimsoll for BBC One. Transmission details will be revealed in due course.
