The series premiered at midnight and tweeps are saying it is definitely worth a watch. Kings of Joburg which was produced by The Fergusons, is not the first South African series to hit Netflix. Blood and Water and Queen Sono also premiered on the international streaming service and they left many in awe.
The 6-part series delves into the legacy building, fragmented family structures, treacherous brotherhoods, and the effects of crime and African masculinities on families and society at large. Loyalties will be tested, with long-held secrets threatening to shatter the fragile facade.
In a statement released by Netflix SA, Shona Ferguson explained why he decided to produce the series.
“When I created KINGS OF JOBURG I wanted to root the show in elements of love, family, conflict and power. The premise of the series is centered around the question, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” and this narrative is explored in all 6 episodes. The mystical and thriller side of the story is inspired by the folk tales that I grew up learning about from my late father, Peter Harry Ferguson.”
