Reactions have flooded in from social media to the news that SABC 1's primetime music show Live Amp will be coming to a close.
Entertainment commentator Phil Mphela on Thursday posted a poster of rapper AKA, whom it has been announced will perform at the season finale premiere, with the message of the announcement of the show's upcoming last run.
"After a decade on air, SABC1’s primetime music show Live Amp is ending. The new season, themed The Last Dance, is its farewell run. The final season premieres this Friday, 9 July, at 7.30 pm," the entrainment commentator tweeted.
Fans of the show and other social media users reacted to the message with a flurry of comments. Briefly News took a look at some of them below.
"Moving the show from 9 pm was a bad move. LootLove & Warras were fire. But 7.30 pm while you have abo Gomora? SABC was taking chances."
"Even forgot that the show existed. Over time it seems the show lost its stronghold and influence. Used to be a pre-party before going out. And it seems the more it changed presenters the more it degenerated."
"Live Amp died after Andile, Sizwe, Phila, Tbo Touch, Bonang, Minnie and LootLove."
"They shouldn’t have moved it from 9 pm to 7.30 pm in the first place."
"They'e going to come up with a show similar to it anyway for that spot, by the same production houses – the reason I stopped watching the entire channel."
