“I’m shooting a reality TV series, Life with Ackim, which will take the public on my fashion and modeling journey. We hope to air the show on platforms like Sasai (one of Africa’s digital marketplace platforms),” he said.
“Through the show which features local and international artists, I will tell how I succeeded in my career. I have a lot of amazing things to share about my life and my family through this show.
Tshuma said the show also seeks to mend broken relationships between families by teaching forgiveness and acceptance of one another.
“This program aims to encourage and motivate young people by highlighting the daily routine of the participants. It will show our glamorous and charitable side as well as our everyday life,” he said.

He added that the show was also his way of giving back to the community.
“Through the show, I want some up-and-coming artists to also benefit from this exposure and be known to their fans by seeing them on this show,” he said.

“We will be launching new baby products in honor of my cousin Shanice Mpofu’s pregnancy. She will be a reality TV star.
