Sinawe72 is a new home-makeover reality series that helps make the dream of four families come true by giving them a chance to revamp their homes. Sinawe72 starts on eTV on Wednesday 5 March at 5.30PM.

Each team consists of four active members and one mentor/coach, known as the Build It Champion.  The Champion is the overall leader of the team and, although not allowed to get physically involved with the work, he is there to motivate and guide the team. He is also fully responsible for the teams’ building plan. Each week on the show, the teams are also given an additional construction related challenge.
Produced by Gray White Productions, the series runs over 13 episodes. Once the 72 hours of non-stop construction is over, the viewers’ vote for their favourite team and decide on the overall winner.  The announcement of the winner is made at the end of the series.
