Viewers adored actor Hlomla Dandala as the first presenter of ‘All You Need Is Love’, so fans are delighted that he has tweeted asking for his show back
Once one of the best TV shows in the country with a huge following, 'All You Need is Love' was ahead of its time when reality television shows were not yet as widely produced as they are today.
Briefly.co.za has noticed how fans are excited that the original presenter of the show tweeted recently that he would very much like "his show" back.
The show which featured real life couples speaking about their relationship on camera, started out with Dandala and co-presenter, Vanessa Jansen, in its first season.
Subsequent seasons continued to feature Jansen with a variety of co-presenters, until in the fifth season a team of three took over.
Season 2 saw Jansen with Zwai Bala, season 3 with Tshepho Mabona, and season 4 with Aubrey Poo. Season 5 in 2012 featured presenters Sisanda Henna, Yolanda Hlakula and Tshepo Mosese.
All You Need Is Love, which premiered on SABC1 on Saturday 5 October, 2002 was based on a Dutch format and produced by Endemol South Africa.
Over the years, viewers were able to watch as participants took opportunity to send messages of love to spouses, lovers, long-lost friends or relatives or even exes.
One fan even mentioned that given the increasing number of cases of domestic violence and intimate partner murder perhaps the country needs a reminder of how important love is.
Many tweeps have of late popped up in Dandala’s mentions saying they miss the show, having found it never failed to help them catch feelings back in the day.
This week, Dandala posted a tweet where he asked point blank, for “my show” back. Fans were delighted.
"You’ve given MY show to a bunch of people who were overwhelmed by it. Because it was never theirs. It was MY show." tweeted the popular actor. "South Africans want MY show back. How many RT to bring AllYouNeedIsLove back?"
I guess time will tell, by midday on Saturday, the tweet had already been retweeted over a thousand times.
