The year 2019 has been an amazing one for Mpho Merriweather who has officially joined the cast of one of South Africa’s leading reality TV shows, “The Real Housewives of Johannesburg.” Merriweather made her debut on the show last Friday at 7pm on 1Magic. The free-spirited Molepolole-born, UK-raised mother of five is a chic wife, an Afropunk project manager and a trained jewellery designer. Here’s one Motswana woman who is the life of the party and a global nomad.
Always in pursuit of life’s next journey experiential, this reality TV debutante has throughout the years been involved in an extensive spectrum of vocations ranging from journalism and education to entertainment and entrepreneurship. Merriweather believes that her fortune in life is to travel and experience the world. From a village in Botswana to the golden city lights of ‘Egoli’, she is one to look out for.
Known for her charisma, determination and creativity, Merriweather was adopted in her early childhood and raised in a multi-cultural environment with a worldly and dynamic outlook. So it was no surprise that she would lead in the art and design industry, becoming Botswana’s first female jewellery designer for De Beers.
“The Real Housewives of Johannesburg Season 2” chronicles the lives of seven enviably wealthy Jozi women as they negotiate life as family women, businesswomen and friends.
