- The people of Mzansi have been forced to stay indoors amid the lockdown and have been bingeing on TV shows
- Mzansi telenovelas are pulling in millions of viewers every night and it won't be stopping any time soon
- South African viewers took to social media to debate which is their favourite show between Gomora and The Queen
Mzansi views enjoy a wide range of telenovelas but a few favourites always stand out. The Queen and Gomora have both been trending over the weeks but for different reasons. Audiences seem to be loving the refreshing new Gomora but are not too impressed with the current storyline on The Queen.
Social media users took to Twitter to debate which show is better. Twitter user AdvoBarryRoux said:
"The Queen has lost substance and authenticity. Maybe the entire soapie was just a popularity contest from the beginning. #TheQueenMzansi"
To which Twitter user sokoleecious responded:
"#Gomora is sizzling"
"I haven't been watching The Queen ever since Gracious was fired. I'd rather watch something else than watching The Queen"
"I stopped watching we cannot deal with Corrupt Politicians, GBV, Covid and get home to sit to that nonsense. We have enough on our plate. They should just start afresh."
"The Fergusons have lost the touch... The moment your head grow so big that you even think you bigger than your audience, the harder you fall. Their time to be exposed is coming in due course. Right now there is no difference between #TheQueenMzansi and #GenerationsTheLegacy. Shame"
"@THEQUEEN_MZANSI & @GomoraMzansi same ish"
"Gomora 10-0 The Queen"
"Gomora is slowly becoming turning into The Queen. Yabora"
It seems there's no clear winner here and each show has its own audience that its best suited for. Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Gomora is dominating the TV screens and fans can't get enough of the show's talented cast. Many Mzansi social media users have taken a liking to Sana Mchunu.
The actress plays the amusing Zodwa Zondi. She's a hot mess and viewers absolutely love it. After Teddy was taken from her, Zodwa will stop at nothing to get him back. Her convincing acting skills have had viewers calling for her to receive the highest honour in the acting industry.
