The popular Mzansi Cribs Makeover show is returning to our screens and Builders is proud to announce that they will continue to partner with the show, for the second season, to help make home improvement needs of those features on the show come to life. Season one of the show was a big hit bringing in close to half-a-million viewers for the premier episode.
“The show is focused on uplifting the community, where community members nominate a person who embodies the spirit of ubuntu and that person will get their home renovated for free. It only seemed natural for Builders as leaders in DIY, building and home improvement needs to be a part of this initiative that is aimed at bettering the community” informs Janet Booysen, Marketing Executive at Builders.
In light of the current plight of people not being able to keep their jobs or generate an income due to the pandemic, the show comes at the pivotal time. Proud sponsors of the show Builders have sponsored materials valued at over R600 000, with products such as paint, tools & decor items to ensure that these homes are beautifully refreshed in style. This partnership will provide these deserving community members the peace of mind they deserve as well as a chance to live comfortably in their newly renovated spaces.
The Need and the honour to Improve The Homes of Those Who Need it The Most
It’s without a doubt that there is a growing demand for good home makeover reality tv content, we’ve seen this with popular shows like Fixer Upper, Flipp It Like Disckic and Extreme Makeover Home edition. Presented by Thato “TT” Mbha, Mzansi Cribs Makeover celebrates and gives back to ordinary South Africans who have made an extraordinary impact on the lives of others.
“We are excited about the show being renewed for a second season; our partnership with Mzansi Cribs Makeover and TT, who’s passion for building and helping people aligns with our brand values at Builders. We also understand the importance of building and uplifting community members especially those who contribute to impacting their communities positively” adds Roshana Burnett, Integrated Campaign Lead at Builders.
TT’s love for home makeover shows which he consumes continually is what inspired the idea for the show, as he wondered why South Africa doesn’t have its own version of the show. It has been five years since Mbha first put a proposal to paper to get this show running:
“My passion for real estate led me to this project. I also watch a lot of home makeover shows and growing up in Soweto I realise that do gooders in the Black community are often overlooked and this is how I came up with this concept, this is what inspired the show. I’m grateful for partnerships with my sponsors, especially Builders, who believed in this project, as it wouldn’t have been fruitful without them ”.
