Mzansi Magic (Channel 161) is spicing up your weekends with the premiere of Vus' Umlilo, starting Sunday 4 February at 21h00.

Vus' Umlilo, which means "rekindling fire" in Nguni, is strictly for persons over the age of 18 and it explores the real issues that couples face. These issues range from the desire to introduce something completely fresh into their relationship, tackling the unspoken secrets that affect their intimacy, or overcoming emotional disconnects.

Whether it's exploring toys, experimenting with bedroom outfits, or understanding each other's beliefs and backgrounds, the show covers it all. 

Dr. Nomcebo Mthembu, a renowned sexologist is ready to bring honesty, healing, and a whole lot of fun to your Sunday nights.

Mthembu began her sex advice show via the popular show Indaba Sex Talk on Gagasi FM. She spent seven years at the Durban-based station before moving her show to Ukhozi FM in March 2023. Her show on Gagasi started as once-a-month slot and the rise in its demand led to it being a weekly show.

She is a multi-talented woman who began her career in accounting before beginning her medicine studies at Wits University before completing her MBChB degree in 2002 at Sefako Makgatho Health Sciences University. 

Mthembu is on a mission to help couples who are finding their relationships a bit, well, lacking in the passion department.

From rekindling old flames to exploring creative ways to connect, Mthembu is the go-to mentor for all things love and intimacy.

She has previously shared that she is happy to help many people with sex information because people always assume that what they are doing is right.
