Yet another SABC show has been canned as the broadcaster does a clean up of lowly-ranked shows. This time Real Goboza is next in line for the axe as the show faces its final season.
According to entertainment blogger Phil Mphela, the show will be pulled after 14 years on air. He posted:
“RGB returned on Saturday with a new season but this will be the show’s finale season. After 14 years on air, the SABC has pulled the plug on the iconic show.”
Social media users did not take the news well and shared their thoughts about the recent SABC show-canning spree:
“SABC wants us to watch Bruce Lee who died in 1940 until we are grey!”
“More budget needed to buy more old Chinese movies.”
“Ever Since @MojaLoveTv was created,A lot of SABC shows have become irrelevant.”
Another show that recently faced the SABC axe is Live Amp. The presenters of the show found out on social media that the show would not be renewed for a new season.
