- Fans of entertainer Pearl Modiadie were just as upset as she was when they found out her talk show was cancelled
- The news broke thanks to a tweet by entertainment commentator Phil Mphela
- Peeps were unimpressed that Pearl was informed in such a way and came after Phil, who wasn't standing for the hate
Pearl Modiadie, the host of the popular talk show on SABC 1, Zaziwa, were taken by surprise with an announcement she didn't see coming.
Her show was cancelled and she was not informed by the bigshots behind the scenes. Instead, she learnt about the cancellation on social media.
Entertainment commentator, Phil Mphela, was the first to share the news and this upset many peeps.
Phil isn't in the mood for the bad vibes though, and made it clear by sharing another tweet related to the show's cancellation.
"What’s next? Did you want me to call every creative in the industry and ask them if they were informed that SAFTAs are moving to JHB before I shared the news? If (an) SABC spokesperson didn’t tell Pearl abt ZAZIWA before, that’s on SABC.
"Don’t try me."
Pearl has been doing fantastically well 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 reported on by Briefly.co.za, the entertainer commented on Phil's tweet that she's not happy she had to find out on social media.
"It’s heartbreaking to find out on social media."
