Ma-E, Reason and L-Tido to star in Rap Dads

Three of South Africa’s most gifted rappers will step into a spotlight of a different kind when the reality show debuts tonight at 19h00.

The show mixes up music, fatherhood and manhood into one compelling offering, by taking viewers into the lives of South African rappers Ma-E, Reason and L-Tido.

Ma-E was a founding member of Teargas whose 2006 debut K’shubile K’bovu set the rapper on a music career that will soon see the release of his debut solo album through Cashtime Life.

Katlehong raised Reason has similarly carved out a highly respectable music career, on the back of his recorded work (including critically acclaimed 2014 record, Audio High Definition) and his live shows.

L-Tido, has proven himself to be one of SA’s most musically adventurous and in-demand rappers since winning the best newcomer award at the 2010 Channel O Music Video awards.

Rap Dads will follow the trio as they move between the world of rap music and fatherhood. Whether it’s buying supplies for school, dealing with their ‘baby mamas’ or just trying to find some quality time to be with their kids, Rap Dads shares the challenges these three superstar fathers have, in trying to have it all.

In the end, Rap Dads aims to inspire men – to show that it’s possible to pursue an artistic career in a tough genre, and be a good man and father. L-Tido, Ma-E and Reason are ambassadors for life and their stories are worth telling.
