The Bantu Hour will be hitting screens on Saturday, November 7  on SABC2 at 21h00. We took a look behind the scenes and caught well-known funnyman Kagiso Lediga and trumpeter and legendary flugelhornist Hugh Masekela getting ready for the show. Hugh promises us a ‘real laugh, not a sitcom laugh.’ Let that flugelhorn blow!

What's in that cuppa?
Kagiso's on the sauce. Hugh looks on - baffled and adoring.
