- The Braai Show did not do very well in terms of viewership in January and AKA is not very stoked
- TV lovers have shared mixed reactions to the news that the show did not make it into the Top 10
AKA's SABC 1 show titled The Braai Show has been kicked off the channel's Top 10 most-watched shows. The programme hit a slump in January 2021 after doing very well over the past few months.
The rapper-turned-TV presenter hosted Robert Marawa, Laduma and Prince Kaybee in January. None of those episodes pulled enough viewers to make it onto the list of Top 10 SABC 1 shows. Entertainment commentator Phil Mphela wrote on Twitter recently:
"TV: The Braai Show With AKA off SABC1 Top 10. The show, with a decently performing season, hit a slump in January when none of its episodes pulled enough viewers to crack the Top 10. January guests Prince KB, Laduma & Robert Marawa pulled below 2.5-mil."
Social media users have shared mixed reactions to the show hitting a slump last month. Check out some of their comments below:
"The show is wack, I accidentally saw the Robert Marawa one, AKA is the worst interviewer ever, boring."
"He cuts people off while they are still talking, which is very bad coz in order to be a good interviewer you must be a good listener."
"In this case I think problem ke host, guests were interesting but the host wasn't asking those hard-hitting and creative questions that will get you glued to the screen. Anyways, in my opinion."
"I think this was a good show concept, maybe try on another channel at a different time?"
"I always forget to watch it, the contributing factor for me is I'm always between channel 194 (Scandal) and 161 (Gomora)."

"TV: eHostela dethrones The Queen. In a shocking twist of audience trend, the second season of eHostela beat the dominant telenovela to be come the second most watched show on DStv behind Gomora in January. The series pulled 1,76m viewers over The Queen’s 1,66m."
