Beyoncé fans in South Africa have a reason to celebrate. The starlet's Black Is King film will be broadcast on M-Net for Mzansi's viewing pleasure.
The film will see several local artists star alongside the multi-award winning singer, Beyoncé Knowles.
Some of the big local names include actress Connie Chiume, singer and actress Nandi Madida and actor Warren Masemola.
M-Net has scooped rights to show the film in Mzansi and although this is good news, some are worried that it will only be available for premium DStv subscribers.
The film itself was received with mixed reactions after it was announced that it would be broadcast on the Disney streaming service Disney Plus. The service is not yet available in Africa and many questioned why a film about Africans was not accessible in Africa. Obviously the disgruntled cries were heard and the problem was remedied.
Over the weekend, a new trailer of the film was released and it featured Naomi Campbell and Kelly Rowland, to name a few of the famous faces shown.

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Kelly Rowland has admitted that being in Destiny's Child with Beyoncé caused her to second-guess her own choices. The Motivation hitmaker said she would be lying if she said being compared to Beyoncé never bothered her.
The US singer recently opened up about this after The Voice Australia contestant Chris Sebastian revealed his fears about being overshadowed by his pop star brother, Guy Sebastian.
Kelly, 39, expressed that being pitted against her longtime friend and bandmate caused her to constantly re-examine her own choices. According to CNN, Kelly told Sebastian:
"I know this feeling. Can you imagine what it's like being in a group with Beyoncé? I would just torture myself in my head."
