Uyajola is likely one of the most-talked-about TV shows in a long time. The show has barely started airing, and already people want it off their screens.

The first episodes were met with a mixed response - while some South Africans were entertained, others felt that exposing cheaters could lead to harm.

DJ Warras even said he fears the show could result in the death of someone.

Then guests from the show claimed they only did it for the money and it's all fake. So much drama!

Now, viewers have started a petition to get the show off South African TVs, according to TimesLIVE.

Many people feel the show is mocking black people and don't want to see it any more.

The petition was started on Change.Org, and seems to have gained momentum - it got more than 870 signatures in less than 7 days.

However, Moja Love says it's not taking the show off the air.

Briefly.co.za gathered that Lindiwe Mbonambi, Moja Love's head of marketing and PR, says they haven't received any official complaints yet.

“The show will not be cancelled. We find the interest in the show very complimentary and are keen to see how the petition goes.”
