Unathi Nkayi has bounced back on Mzansi Magic with season two of Festive Get-Together in The Life Artois which she will be co-hosting with chef-restaurateur Alessandro Khojane.

The news comes after a series of unfortunate incidents which caused Unathi to lose her job at Kaya 959 and being dropped by GQ.

Festive Get-Together in The Life Artois, presented by Stella Artois in partnership with Mzansi Magic, premieres on Wednesday, 1 December at 21:30 on Mzansi Magic (DStv 161). The show will also repeat Sundays at 14h00.

In the show, Unathi and Alessandro host high-profile working friends, couples, and families who, in their journeys to success, open up about the struggle to find balance in their busy lives.

This season, guests include power media pals Minnie Dlamini and Melanie Bala; super couple Khuli Chana and Lamiez Holworthy and multi-talented foodie friends Maps Maponyane & J’Something.

This season, Festive Get-Together in The Life Artois will once again host meaningful moments of connection with topics as varied as women breaking boundaries in the media to motherhood and lessons learned on balancing life, love, friendships, and everything in-between.

Nkayi was abruptly dismissed from Kaya FM 959 following a heated argument between the radio personality and her colleague Sizwe Dhlomo.

On Tuesday GQ’s Editor in Chief Molife Kumona said that Unathi would no longer host the 2021 GQ Man of The Year Awards ceremony, taking place on 27 November at Four Seasons Hotel, due to “unforeseen circumstances.”

It was widely reported that the decision by GQ was induced by her sacking at Kaya 959.

Unathi was accused of falsely accusing Sizwe of verbally abusing her.

He said he wasn’t going to comment publicly, but he had to protect his reputation.

“Well, verbal abuse is a very serious allegation, so I believe I would have been fired, but more importantly, my reputation would have been in tatters. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to hear her side of the story, but like I said, the City Press article is mostly true.”
