Isidingo was a South African soapie that was loved by many television fans in the country. Hearts broke all over Mzansi when it was announced that the show was canned and the last episode aired in early 2020.
The show ran for over 20 years and it was a sad time for some soapie lovers when it all came to an end.
Just recently on social media, fans reflected on how Isidingo never missed an opportunity to keep their viewers informed.
A Twitter user (@Alstanata) said that during this time, Isidingo would have been teaching South Africans a lot about Covid-19:
"Isidingo would be doing the most educating us about Covid-19."
A number of social media users engaged with the tweet, with most of them being nostalgic about the soapie:
@EmmanuelMalatje said: "Unfortunately, we didn't appreciate it when it was still on air, by watching it and giving them the numbers they needed to stay on air."
@kemosotho_ said: "7de Laan tried shame... Generations: The Legacy also tried. Isidingo was definitely gonna do the job."
@YaaAsanteWaaaa commented: "They had scriptwriters who always incorporated current affairs to the storyline. I loved that."
@zukimadondo commented: "I miss the old Isidingo with Lettie, Bra Zeb, Mama Agnes, Maggie, Nandipha and Parsons."
@Masole_Patty said: "I kept saying that, even now I know they would be doing the most. I would literally be up to date with everything through it."
In other Mzansi television news, Briefly.co.za reported that Kay Sibiya made his long-awaited debut on Generations: The Legacy. Former Uzalo actor made his debut on Generations: The Legacy on Tuesday evening and fans reacted to his first appearance on the show.
When news broke that Kay had been cast for Generations, the fans were super excited to see what he could bring to the table. Kay plays the character of Siyanda, who is the notorious Jack Mabaso's younger brother. Jack Mabaso is played by veteran Vusi Kunene.
