Moja Love has been accused of stealing content ideas for their show, Ready to Quit. An independent Durban producer, Nandipha Mdinga, claimed that she pitched the ideas for the show in September last year.
It has been reported that Nandipha's proposal was rejected but she was surprised when Moja Love, Channel 157 on DStv, requested her not to promote the ideas of the show because "they were already under development".
Nandipha said one of the ideas she pitched was about a show aimed at rehabilitating young people who are addicted to nyaope. ZAlebs reports that a similar show called Ready to Quit premiered on the channel in December, 2020.
The publication reports that Nandipa told Daily Sun that she was shook when she saw that they were using the same concept she pitched.
Channel Head Bokani Moyo told the publication that a show about rehabilitation had already been in the pipelines, hence they requested Nandipha not to "promote the ideas".
