In 2010, Sukuma Media was commissioned by Mnet’s new channel ‘Mzansi Magic’ to produce a feature-length film for Television. Under the leadership of Bonginhlanhla Ncube, a.k.a. Mr. B, the hit film 48 became the company’s debut production. Tremendous effort and minimised budgets were the highlights of 48. The film’s quality production was made evident when it received exhibition invite from the elite Durban International Film Festival for 2011; however, it was eventually deselected because it aired on Mzansi Magic prior to the festival’s screening.
