Just when you think you’re finally making your way in this world, think again, because it’s payback time from the first paycheque with Black Tax.
With six SAFTA nominations (including for Best Comedy) and a win for Best Scriptwriting, the popular BET Africa original family sitcom Black Tax is back for a second season of laugh-out-loud hilarity as career-woman and single mom Thuli Dlamini tries to keep up with paying her dues to her family, who supported her journey to success.
SAFTA winner Jo-Anne Reyneke (Broken Vows, Isono) returns as Thuli, with Mandla Jwara (Isithembiso) nominated for Best Actor at the 2021 SAFTAs as her father. Industry legend Clementine Mosimane, a 2020 SAFTA winner for Poppie Nongena and 2021 nominee for How To Ruin Christmas: The Wedding, plays her mother, while comedians Sne Dladla and Jason Goliath also star.
New faces this season include five-time SAFTA nominee Motlatsi Mafatshe (How To Ruin Christmas: The Wedding) and newcomer Asante Mabuza as the meddlesome new neighbours of Thuli and her crazy family. Acting legend Owen Sejake (Tsotsi, Beat the Drum, Yizo Yizo) also joins the cast.
Created by Meren Reddy, Joshua Rous and Luke Rous, who have 15 SAFTAs between them, Black Tax is a co-production between BET Africa and Showmax, produced by Rous House Productions (Inconceivable, Elke Skewe Pot, High Rollers).
