This December it’s all about family & friends finally getting together during the festive season, being present and reconnecting over food & conversation.

Beloved media personality and Idols SA judge Unathi Nkayi returns to television to host a not-to-be-missed, three-part festive season TV special, Festive Get-together in The Life Artois.

The show, presented by Stella Artois, premieres on Saturday the 5th December 2020 at 15h30 on 1 Magic (DSTV 103) and will see Unathi host high-profile friends, couples and families who, in their journeys to success, find it challenging to get together and connect with loved ones in their busy lives.

For the next three weeks, renowned chef-restaurateur Alessandro Khojani will join Unathi in turning the homes of guests into eateries, bringing the fine dining experience home and creating meaningful moments of connection in the process.

“With the lives we lead and year we have had, we so often just haven’t had time to connect. It is so important to bond with those who make our life what it is: family and friends. So, this show is about connection and why the best present this holiday is to be present for those we love,” says Unathi.

In each episode, viewers will get a front row seat with some of SA’s top personalities as they talk about their aspirations, life milestones and the meaning of being present for each other over festive fare in the company of Stella Artois.

Guests will include power couple Zakes and Nandi Madida and fashion and lifestyle friends Kefilwe Mabote and Sarah Langa.

In episode one, the very private and media-shy entertainment couple Zakes and Nandi Madida invite Festive Get-together into an exclusive and intimate experience, and viewers can expect a number of surprises along the way.

“Festive Get-together in The Life Artois is about focusing on connecting with close friends & family, and there’s no better way than creating conversation over food. This is The Life Artois. With her charisma - and an extraordinary ability to bring out the best in everyone that she interviews – Unathi Nkayi is the perfect host,” says Marsha Kumire, Brand Director: High End Africa.
