When we first heard that Papa Penny would be getting his own reality show, a ton of assumptions came to mind, but what we got instead was a big surprise.

Not only did we instantly become fans of the man behind the music, we got to know so much about him with each and every episode that we couldn’t wait to catch each week’s new episode.

One of the things that kept us coming back was his 29-year-old son, Bafana Mdluli. “Most of my children take their mother's surname but I am their favourite. That boy, I am so happy when he comes to see me," said Papa Penny the first time Bafana appeared on the show. It is no secret that like his father, Papa Penny has quite a number of children but Bafana was a welcome surprise (just look at him).

One of the main things we found out about Bafana when he was first brought onto the show is that he is an aspiring model and that he had a lot of offers for work on the table. When asked how that’s going, Bafana said “it’s going well, I just told myself I’m not going to rush into anything that doesn’t look legit because there have been a lot of offers but nothing concrete yet.”
He also mentions that modelling has always been his first love and as such, fitness comes easy to him. “If I’m not in they gym then i’m playing soccer or boxing to keep fit,” explains Bafana.  Once his modelling career is up and running, Bafana says he’d also like to try his hand at acting. Why not reality stardom we ask…?
“I really just want to concentrate on me and my modelling right now, not piggy backing on my dad’s fame,” explains Bafana.

We then ask if that means we won’t be seeing him on the next season of Papa Penny Ahee?
“Fans will just have to wait and see,” he replies.

So there will be a season 2 we ask?
“Eish, I don’t even know if I should be saying this but season 2 is in the pipeline.”
And as for whether or not he’ll feature on the show, Bafana repeats “they’ll just have to wait and see.”
