Lingashoni has failed to rake in the viewers it expected to receive. The telenovela produced by Stained Glass TV is not doing so well and couldn't even break into the Top 30 most-watched shows in Mzansi.

According to entertainment blogger Phil Mphela, the show has had a bit of a rough start and it's not what was expected.

"The 1Magic show was available to Compact viewers when it premiered on 22nd until 28 March but failed to attract enough viewers to crack DStv’s Top 30 list in March," tweeted Phil.

"To be fair: The show may be performing well on 1Magic based on their regular pull. Also, remember that Durban Gen and Imbewu starting with weak numbers but picked up later," said Mphela.

Social media users reacted to the news on the timeline. Check out the reactions below:

"I might be wrong but time slot is an issue, most of us are watching Gomora at that time."

@bash_shabalala said:

"Problem most of its followers don't have @DStv, they have @openviewforever."

@Mxolisibryan9 commented:

"That's probably because eTV is accessible to all, Durban Gen was an alternative from Skeen Saam."
