There was an aura of excitement on social media when the much-acclaimed reality TV show Papa Penny Ahee returned to TV screens on Wednesday.
After what seems like decades, Papa Penny’s fans welcomed the musician back on his reality show which is arguably the most authentic Mzansi has ever seen. He had promised more ‘goldie bone’ moments and a front seat into his awesome life in season two and that’s what fans are getting already.
True fans of the show went crazy on Wednesday as the Mzansi Magic reality show’s first episode of season two aired. However, the mood on Twitter went from excitement to shock when tweeps realised that the star was poisoned.
Papa Penny revealed that he survived several poisoning attempts in his life. Thus, he tasked his chef to taste the food in front of him so they can ‘die together’.
On a lighter note, by the end of the first episode of Papa Penny Ahee, fans were able to grab some new words to add to their vocabulary. The phrase ‘quick die’ which means poison and ‘NIP’ which is the opposite of VIP, meaning ‘not important person’ were discovered by fans.
Evidently, Twitter was overjoyed by the show’s return and the memes that flooded the platform are proof of it.

#PapaPennyAhee is one of the most realist show out here… No filters, no pretense. Just pure, raw emotion 😂 😂 😂

Some even hinted that they would boycott Minnie Dlamini’s Becoming Mrs Jones and Bonang Matheba’s show to watch Papa Penny’s.

When Papa Penny Ahee debuted on air earlier this year, it quickly became a firm favourite on Mzansi Magic. At first, the show attracted criticisms over the musician’s spoken English which he never saw as a problem. Nevertheless, there’s a constant engagement and attachment to the show across social media.
Fans fell in love with the authenticity of the show as Papa Penny allowed then a clear view of his flamboyant lifestyle. Apparently, that love has not been compromised by a slew of other shows on TV.
