Nelson Mandela’s grandchildren will star in a reality show, the family announced today. According to, Swati Dlamini, granddaughter of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela told reporters:

“The show will be about their lives as young, black women…we’re not wearing ‘I’m a Mandela’ T-shirts.”

Her cousin Dorothy Adjoa Amuah, who is the granddaughter of the late Evelyn Mandela said:

“We are exposing Africa for what it is … with a new middle class of intellectuals … contributing to the economy.”

“We’re definitely not the African Kardashians,” Amuah said.

Dlamini and her older sister Zaziwe Dlamini-Manaway, and Amuah said the show would look at their roles as mothers and career women. They grew up in the United States but returned to South Africa for business.
