- Pearl Modiadie has been doing amazing things as she hosted the popular talk show, Zaziwa
- The show had millions of viewers and many admired Pearl's host abilities
- However, SABC has decided to cut the show and she wasn't informed - Pearl found out on social media
Host of the popular talk show on SABC 1, Zaziwa, Pearl Modiadie, has been doing fantastic in her role.
The show became a must-watch for many South Africans and had millions of loyal viewers.
But it seems that wasn't enough for the SABC, as the show was apparently cancelled.
Surprisingly, Pearl was not informed by the show's bigshots despite being part of its success story.
The entertainer commented on a tweet that made the announcement and she's not happy that she had to find out on social media.
"It’s heartbreaking to find out on social media."
Well-known entertainment commentator, Phil Mphela, is the one who apparently broke the news. It seems he knew more about what's happening behind the scenes than Pearl did.
Even Phil had to point out that the show had many viewers.
"SABC has officially cancelled its popular talk show hosted by Pearl Modiadie. The show performed well ratings-wise - peaking at 4.2-million viewers over its run. But it was sabotaged when the channel meddled & kept moving the show’s time slot around."
Briefly.co.za noticed that Pearl's fans are very upset over the way the situation was handled. They are disgusted that she wasn't informed properly.
Check out what a couple of them had to say:
"What !!!? @PearlModiadie are you telling us that you didn't know about this?"
"You are great presenter, the show needed something new in order to be more interesting but cancelling it without telling you is a no no...SABC is f***ed up..."
"I'm so sorry. It was a stunning show, and you executed with absolute excellence! Wishing you all the best."
"I find it disrespectful of the channel and production if you were to find out on social media about a programme cancellation while you have been the key in making it one of the best shows in Mzansi."
"Wow. I'm so sorry you had to find out like this Pearl. Phil did you dirty by running to break the news on Social Media before your bosses could inform you. Looking forward to your next chapter."
