Khanyi Mbau scores a new gig as the host of a new reality show titled The Big Secret on BET Africa, channel 129.

The 13 part show premieres on Wednesday, October 18, at 9:30pm.

Each episode will feature participants who will reveal their deepest, darkest secrets to Khanyi before they come clean to to their families, friends or partners.

Commenting on the show, Monde Twala, Vice President for BET, Youth and Music for (VIMN) Africa: “Khanyi has a wealth of life experience in interacting with diverse people and communities from all walks of life together with the challenges she has personally worked through in her own life.

"Her exposure to life and its challenges has shaped her sense of compassion, empathy, sensitivity and insightfulness. These are the important qualities which make her relatable and trustworthy to both the audience and candidates. The Big Secret is going to be empowering and captivating reality TV.”

The producers of The Big Secret hope that by watching the show, viewers find the courage and inspiration to begin their own personal journey towards unburdening themselves and reclaiming their lives.

“Secrets trap people and stop them from progressing with their lives. The show is a platform for guests participating to free themselves emotionally and finally choose to live the life they were destined to. The Big Secret aims to support participants to build, empower and inspire themselves,” says Mbau.
