The granddaughters of Nelson Mandela are about to follow in the footsteps of the Kardashian sisters by starring in their own reality show on the newly launched network Cozi TV.

The show, titled Being Mandela, features sisters Zaziwe Dlamini-Manaway and Swati Dlaminiand will follow the sibling’s daily lives, their close-knit family and personal goals.

Zaziwe and Swati are the daughters of Zenani Mandela DlaminiNelson and Winnie Mandela’s daughter, and Prince Thumbumuzi Dlaminia prince of Swaziland. Both women spent their youth in the United States, returning to their homeland as teenagers upon their grandfather’s release from prison in 1991. The pair now run their own clothing line called Long Walk to Freedom, as well as being mothers.

Being Mandela will show their first visit to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years, as well as a trip  to Swaziland, where they are African princesses.

Speaking about the show the sisters said:

“This show is about us and our lives — both as individuals and as members of the Mandela family.It offers a window on how far we have come to re-establish our lives. We are excited to share the story of our lives, and hopefully viewers will be able to appreciate how universal the human story is.”

Well, we don’t think it will be as scandalous as Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but it’s definitely one to watch.

Being Mandela debuts on 10 February on Cozi TV.
