- Fans are begging for SABC 1 talk show, Zaziwa, to return
- Pearl Modiadie gave fans a glimpse of hope, but the answer was not definite
- The stunning TV host has achieved a lot in her time and she is grateful for all that Zaziwa gave her
There is uncertainty among fans of SABC 1 talk show, Zaziwa, whether the show will be returning to our screens or not. What Pearl Modiadie had to say does not give us much hope.
The talk show has not been broadcast for more than a year now, and that does not include the repeats that have been shown.
Briefly.co.za learnt that final confirmation has not yet been received stating that the show has truly ended, but signs show that there is a good possibility of that happening.
Pearl touched on a couple of factors that fans where curious about. When the time came for questions regarding Zaziwa, Pearl’s replies were not what the fans were hoping for.
Her answer was that if the show did return, she would make sure that she puts it out there for all to know, but at the present time she has no idea what is going to happen. She went on to say that she has enjoyed the past five years with Zaziwa, but we will all have to wait to see what happens.
Pearl has not only hosted the show from 2012 but also served as its executive producer. The show was a huge success and as we can all remember, Zaziwa was ranked top talk show on South African television, bragging with over four million views.
When the show had its time slot changed from a Sunday to a weekday, the fans were told that it was a “schedule change”.
Pearl did not think too much of the slot change. She knows as a producer they needed to create content that they have been contracted to and provide material to the SABC. The decision of what time or day shows are broadcast are entirely up to the SABC.
After the decision was made to change the time and day, it has just not been aired and concerns are now mounting. Zaziwa is not the only show that the SABC appears to be ending, there are various other favourite shows that are no longer aired.
