In 2018, 'Uzalo' became the most-watched soapie in South Africa and broke records with more than 10 million views reached, and it hasn't been surpassed by another show yet. This year's stats show that Uzalo has reached more than 9 million views already.
Uzalo reached 10.2 million views in 2018 and became the most-watched show in South Africa. According to a report by ZAlebs, the show broke viewership records by achieving so many views.
It looks like the TV show is staying the dominant soap on our screens this year as well, as it had already reached 9.1 million views by the end of February.
The Broadcast Research Council of South Africa indicates that Uzalo is followed by Generations: The Legacy with 8.1 million views.
This success comes after Uzalo had troubles in 2018 and had to stop production after the South African Broadcasting Corporation failed to pay.
Fortunately, the cast and crew were able to return to work after the SABC finally made its payment.
Other soaps such as Muvhango, Skeem Saam and Scandal! are also some of the top performers in the February Top TV programmes list.
ZAlebs also reported that Isidingo: The Need is one of the least-viewed soaps in Mzansi with 821 676 views.
