JOHANNESBURG- The music veteran Chicco Twala who seems to have done it all announced he will have his own reality show, about iKasi food.
Twala said he is putting finishing touches to a reality show that is a mixture of Come Dine with Me and MasterChef, that will be located in a Soweto restaurant.
He said, “I am going to have a reality show soon. I am busy renovating my restaurant in Soweto at the moment (for it). Kasi Chef is about getting people from iKasi to come and cook traditional foods. We will have a reality show about that. There will be prizes to be won.”
Last year he spoke to Move magazine and said he started a restaurant in the townships because he felt people needed to experience food from different cultures.
He added, “We are a very unique eatery aiming at giving our guests great food and entertainment. When we started conceptualising the idea of having a restaurant iKasi‚ we had to think of our customers first and how we could give them something to be proud of.”
Twala praised his wife Maki’s cooking, whose dishes are mogodu and traditional chicken one of the most popular dishes at the restaurant.
Cicco does it drink alcohol and thinks this has helped him balance his finances, he said, “I must really thank God because I don’t remember a day when I couldn’t buy groceries or pay school fees. I think what has helped me is that I don’t drink and I don’t smoke. I think staying sober has kept me positive.”
