With both personalities and having been in the spotlight for incidents related to Gender-based violence (GBV), it should be interesting to hear how they define what makes a man.

The MTV Shuga documentary series is executive produced by actor Ayanda Makayi, who, in the documentary, sets out to find out what makes a man.

His quest is sparked by him stepping into the role of a father and wanting to set a good example for his son.

Ayanda remarked that he had a "very interesting conversation" with Big Zulu regarding what makes a man. He admitted that while the conversation was eye-opening, they didn’t agree on everything.

"@bigzulu_sa accepted us into his home village, Bergville...and had a chat about "What Makes A Man?"... very interesting conversation we had! 😳 sometimes we agreed, sometimes we disagreed..but none the was eye-opening!" he wrote on Instagram.

In the trailer of the three-part documentary series, Uncle Vinny shares his thoughts about justice in South Africa in regards to Gender-based violence (GBV).

One thing is clear, Uncle Vinny is not about perpetrators, and he feels that there should be harsher punishments for those convicted.

Hopefully, this also applies to some of the celebrities he rubs shoulders with.

GBV is a severe problem plaguing South African communities, with the country experiencing high levels of violence against women and children.
