Rich SA kids to show off their wealth in new TV show

A new reality show on Vuzu Amp is set to give ordinary citizens a glimpse into rich kids and the ‘nice life problems’.

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be a member of South Africa’s young and privileged, then the brand new reality series on Vuzu AMP - Rich Kids is a show for you.

The show debuts on the DStv channel 114 on the 16th of April at 19:00.

Keeping the viewers in suspense, the identities of the limelight-seeking rich kids featuring in the 10 part series are still under wraps – except for unashamed mavens of the good life - Bob and Don.

The Tshwane-based brothers are polar opposites, but if there’s one thing they have in common, it’s their love for all the extravagant things that money can buy.


Bob is a calm and friendly young man – but also with a vain streak and a wallet-draining passion for fashion and designer brands. Meanwhile, Don is rebellious and endowed with a streak of confidence that can quickly turn into arrogance. As befitting a rich kid, Don is also mad about expensive sports cars.

Their sister Sizakele is the girlfriend of Kaizer Chiefs player George Lebese.

She recently laid charges of assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and malicious damage to property against the player after he smashed the windows of her Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG.

It is not known yet if she will be one of the main characters in the show.


Rich Kids is set to provide an intimate look at how young and super-wealthy spend their money – and their time.

Over and above the spending habits, Rich Kids will also show another side to the lives of the privileged; their relationships with those close to them - friends and family members – and even new people in their lives will not be off bounds.
