The Kardashians: A New Show On Hulu

Published

on

If you thought playing around with Nascar odds was fun, then wait until you hear about the new Kardashian show that’s set to land on streaming platform, Hulu, soon. After ending 20 seasons of their popular reality TV show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, many couldn’t see life after the show for the Kardashians with much speculation on what’s next since the family made a lot of its wealth from the show itself. 

 

But a lot’s changed since then. Now, the sisters have experienced a few new events after the end of their show with Kim getting divorced to, then husband, Kanye West, Kourtney finally finding love, and Kylie having another baby with the famous rapper, Travis Scott. If you’re keen on knowing more about their upcoming show, stay glued to your screen. 

 

The Kardashians: A New Show

 

The Kardashian-Jenner family has managed to build a successful empire in reality TV within a media landscape that’s continuously shifting and evolving. After hearing news of their new show, the public also learned that the family would be shifting their drama to Hulu thanks to a multi-year deal that was started with the aim of creating global content exclusive to streaming services owned by Disney. 

 

Many fans have shown great support for the new show, but this has also left an equally interested audience that’s keen on knowing what exactly to expect. According to trending news, the new series is set to likely be somewhat similar to what the public saw in the KUWTK reality show. However, we can expect to find a more prestigious aspect being added to the Kardashian-Jenner family within the Hulu production space. 

 

The Arrival

 

It was in September 2020 that KUWTK came to an end; however, news of the new show began making waves in early 2022. Back in December 2021, no exact date had been issued as yet on when the public could expect the series to be released, but judging from what Khloe Kardashian had hinted on the Ellen show, dates surrounding the release of the show would be taking place “soon” enough. 

 

As we look forward to seeing what the celebrity family has in store for us, we’re also eager to explore this new side to their family dynamic. After the Hulu teaser trailer was released in late December 2021, the public got a glimpse of how much fabulous to expect after witnessing a series of clips where the family was getting all glammed up and walking around in their dangerously high heels. Seems they’ll be sticking to what they’re naturally known for which is rather exciting for most fans.

 

In February 2022, another Hulu clip was released with an official release date being issued and set for April 14th 2022 with expected episodes to drop every Thursday from the official release date. 

 

What To Expect

 

Well, Hulu has chosen to keep the title of the show pretty simple by calling it, The Kardashians. And you probably guessed right, it is a show that’s set to mirror their previous show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. In an interview with Wall Street Journal and Kim Kardashian, she revealed that the family would be retaining all editing rights and that the main focus of the show would be on the family’s business enterprises instead of their actual family affairs and private lives. 

 

The family seems to be rather excited about the opportunity with members like Kris Jenner referring to this venture as a new chapter. She also went on to speak about how the family has evolved as a whole. 

 

Keeping Up With The Kardashians Vs The Kardashians

 

Based on what the public has been given so far, it looks as though there won’t be much of a great difference between the two shows. However, reports from Variety state that the public can expect a few minor shifts in the light of getting a more premium and documentary-style version to the show. 

 

According to Hulu, only two seasons of the show will be launched with a total of 40 episodes, but should the family wish to continue the project, they will be more than welcome to do so.

Orlando Pirates and RS Berkane square off in CAF Confederation Cup final, available to stream live on Showmax Pro in Africa

Published

on

The annual CAF Confederation Cup comes to an epic close on Friday, 20 May 2022 at Uyo in Nigeria as South Africa’s Orlando Pirates go head to head with Morocco’s RS Berkane.
All the footballing action will be available to stream live on Showmax Pro in Africa from 20:00 (WAT); 21:00 (CAT); 22:00 (EAT), courtesy of SuperSport.
Pirates will be playing in their fourth CAF final despite a shock home defeat to Al Ahli Tripoli in their second semi-final leg as they advanced 2-1 on aggregate to secure their place in the final. Their opponents, RS Berkane, defeated Congolese giants TP Mazembe 4-2 over two legs. RS Berkane, the 2019/2020 CAF Confederations Cup champions, will be playing in their third final after coming up short in 2018/19 when they finished as runners up.
The Soweto giants have not enjoyed a good domestic season as they currently sit in a disappointing seventh place in the DStv Premiership. League form normally goes out the window when it comes to cup competitions and this was the case for Ezimnyama Ngenkani as they topped their group, which consisted of Al-Ittihad Tripoli, JS Saoura and Royal Leopards with four wins, one draw and one defeat in their six games.
The Orange Boys currently share the same domestic position as their opponents as they sit seventh in the Botola Pro 1, further demonstrating that league form does not translate to cup performances. Like Pirates, RS Berkane also topped their group, which had Simba S.C, ASEC Mimosas and Union Sportive Gendarmerie Nationale on the way to the knockout stages, managing three wins, a draw and two losses. This sets up a perfectly balanced final that both sets of supporters and neutrals will be glued to until the final whistle.
The winner of the CAF Confederation Cup will take home a whopping $1.25 million in prize money and will also take part in the CAF Super Cup, where they will play against the winner of the CAF Champions League which will see Al Ahly will battle it out in the final against Wydad Casablanca on Monday, 30 May 2022 – which will also be live on Showmax Pro. All the CAF action will be streaming live for all Showmax Pro subscribers in Africa, courtesy of SuperSport.

Mellow & Sleazy on working separately

 

We’re almost never in the studio at the same time. He usually makes his own beats separately and I make my own beats separately, then we just exchange the projects and finish off each other’s projects. We just give each other space – he does his own thing, I do my own thing then once we’re done we’ll share what we have done, he’ll edit whatever I’ve done and I’ll edit whatever he did, then it becomes a full song.

Mellow & Sleazy on experimental sounds

 

So basically we’ve only tried experimenting with two genres, Bacardi and… I forgot the name of the sound but it’s from Angola so we’ve tried experimenting with those two sounds and a bit of soulfulness, because most of the people know us for being hardcore producers that make like loud music all the time, so we tried making it soulful but keeping that element at the same time. The whole EP is Bacardi, basically.

Mellow & Sleazy on exciting talent showcased on their new EP

 

The underground talent that we have on our EP… the first one is M.J, he’s a rapper and singer. He’s been on a lot of hits actually, he’s one of the vocalists that we always work with because he’s very versatile. He can do what five vocalists can do in the studio, so that’s why we’re always working with him. Another one is Matute Boy. Bacardi usually needs someone to rap fast, and with the lingo… and who else? Azi! Azi is a singer, we’ve just started working with him now, he’s very very new but he’s too much. I’ve never heard a voice like that so yeah, we’ll see where that takes us.

Roland Garros 2022 available on Showmax Pro in select African countries

Published

on

It may be Wimbledon’s Centenary in 2022, but never has such speculation swirled around the build-up to Roland Garros. With the tournament set to stream stream live on Showmax Pro in select African countries*, courtesy of SuperSport, tennis fans will be able to catch all the action starting 22 May 2022.
In the lead-up to the clay court spectacle, 19-year-old Carlos Alcaraz has taken Rafa Nadal, the entrenched Roland Garros bull, by the horns and tossed him onto the side-lines, railroading his quest to win a sixth Madrid title and his 14th French Slam.
With perhaps less ease, Alcaraz then dispatched World No 1, Novak Djokovic, admittedly not fully fit, after a much scrutinised, self-inflicted time away from the Tour. Thereafter, the lesser task accomplished by this teenage phenomenon was to beat physically depleted World No 3, Alexander Zverev.
The unprecedented Madrid victory has catapulted Alcaraz from rank outsider to second favourite at Roland Garros, and the pending winner for this Slam too, long dominated by one reigning king (Nadal), has become as difficult to predict.
French defending champion Djokovic will have to avoid a repeat performance of his resounding US Open loss to World No 2, Daniil Medvedev, and resurrect the game plan whereby he exacted revenge, volleying Medvedev off the court at the Paris Masters.
In the women’s field, Barbora Krejcíková will be aiming to defend her title after defeating Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova during last year’s final. Iga Swiatek goes into the tournament as the World No 1 after Ashleigh Barty’s recent retirement.
It’s no surprise that former No 1 Naomi Osaka, who controversially pulled out of the French Open last year after a first round victory, announced she’ll compete in Paris. However, with a recent withdrawal from the Italian Open with an Achilles injury, the global superstar is set to head to Paris as somewhat of an unknown quantity.
While it cannot be predicted who will take the crown in what is shaping up to be a very open-ended battle of the clay court, the ultimate prerequisites for those in line for the title will be staying on top of their game, laser focus, soft hands at the net and a Teflon temperament.
All the action from the much-anticipated tournament can be live streamed and enjoyed by Showmax Pro Subscribers in Africa, excluding those in South Africa, Lesotho and Mauritius.
*Note that Roland Garros will not be available to live stream on Showmax Pro in South Africa, Lesotho or Mauritius
