Since its premier in 2012, the show Forever Young has now produced three seasons, with the third launching tonight on Vuzu AMP, Channel 114 on DSTv Premium. The show depicts the real lives of three young South African men who go from trying to create a production company in season one to managing one of the leading companies in the country that produces reality television content as well as their own individual projects in this new season.
We catch up with one third of Parental Advisory Productions and cast member, Siyabonga Ngwekwazi, on the show’s evolution and his personal style growth seen on the show.
- Congratulations on season 3 of Forever Young! Did you imagine the show making it to Season 3?
I HONESTLY THOUGHT WE WERE GOING TO DO ONE SEASON AND BE OUT. LOL! NOT OUT AS IN PEEPS DON’T WANNA SEE MORE, BUT OUT AS IN, ”THAT’S ALL YOU GET, PEACE OUT!”
- How has the show evolved from season 1?
SHIT,GOOD QUESTION…SEASON ONE,WE WAS BUCKWILDIN’ OUT! SEASON TWO WAS US BUILDING THE COMPANY, SEASON THREE IS QUITE MATURED DARE I SAY.THE GROWTH INDIVIDUALLY AND AS A UNIT AND AS A COMPANY, PARENTAL ADVISORY PRODUCTIONS SHINES THROUGH.
- Forever Young is the first and only show of its kind, how have you guys kept it relevant for so long?
THANKS FOR THE “ONLY SHOW OF IT’S KIND.”
EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE OTHER REALITY SHOWS OUT THERE, WE THINK WE ARE AUTHENTIC, SO WHEN IT IS RECOGNIZED, IT IS APPRECIATED. AND I GUESS I JUST ANSWERED PART OF YOUR QUESTION; AUTHENTICITY IS KEY! FOR THE OTHER HALF, I GUESS WE ASK THE PEOPLE CAUSE THEY KEEP US RELEVANT… OH AND A THIRD ANSWER IS REPEATS. LOL!
- Through the show we have seen your style growth, would you say your style is forever young?
FOREVER – AS IN CLASSIC STYLE
YOUNG – AS IN FRESH
SOMETIMES I DON’T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT THE CONCEPT OF STYLE. I’M JUST TRYNA BE CLOTHED FOR THE WEATHER AND COMFORTABLE.
- If you had to collaborate with The Threaded Man, what could people expect?
CLEARS THROAT…. FIRSTLY, THEY CAN EXPECT FOR THAT IDEA OF A COLLABORATION TO HAPPEN. AND…SOON. SOMETHING CULTURAL, SOMETHING ARTY FARTY… SOMETHING VERY BLACK.
Catch Forever Young, TONIGHT (7pm CAT) on Vuzu AMP channel 114 on DSTv Premium.
