Life Through Iris, an exclusive Zambezi Magic special

Life Through Iris, an exclusive Zambezi Magic special, features Iris Kaingu being completely herself.

Think again if you believe you have seen everything there is to know about the one and only Iris Kaingu. Life Through Iris, an exclusive, all-access, no holds barred docuseries inside the life of one of the nation’s most well-known and divisive celebrities, will debut next month on Zambezi Magic.

The weekly five-part program debuts on Sunday, December 25 at 8 p.m., and it has Iris speaking candidly, exposing her most vulnerable side, and addressing the query: Who exactly is the lady behind the lewd headlines?

Since she soared to popularity (or, as some might say, notoriety) in 2012, the socialite, social media star, and businesswoman has been a household name. The Zambezi Magic special features Iris in a way you have never seen her before, despite the fact that she has conducted interviews in the past.

“As a channel we’re eager to premiere Life Through Iris, which is another production that shows Zambezi Magic pushing the envelope when it comes to the stories we tell. To create as intimate and honest show as this one, featuring one of Zambia’s most famous names, is remarkable and rare – it’s the perfect Sunday night primetime show,” says Mrs Leah Kooma, Managing Director, MultiChoice Zambia.

“Our viewers are versatile and have discerning taste, and reality shows are among a favourite on the channel. We look forward to the audience reception to the special,” she said.

Life Through Iris, which compares Iris’s journey over the last five years to the present, uses both new and unique video that was shot in recent years. We observe as Iris speaks for herself after years of being defined through the eyes of others, as told openly through the aforementioned footage as well as through honest and anecdotal conversations with Iris, her family, and her friends.

The episodes cover everything from her regular life to her unabashed public persona: we join Iris on a family vacation, watch as she negotiates the perilous dating landscape, and learn about the difficulties fame brings to her friendships, work partnerships, and love relationships.

Iris Kaingu wants you to have a front-row seat to her life because she is more than the scandalous tabloid gossip and the headlines.

Watch Life Through Iris, which premieres on Zambezi Magic on Sunday, December 25 at 20h00 (DStv Channel 162 and GOtv Supa Channel 5). Keep up with our new and returning shows, as well as other fascinating material on the channel, by visiting
