"As much as there are allegations that Ferguson’s underpay its employees; but Brenda was out of job for many years. Hay inoba uyilibele indlala asuka kuyo. Many people are jobless yena naku eTala. It’s not as if she has a scarce skill."

‘The Queen’ reportedly cancelled after 7 years, viewers of the Mzansi Magic telenovela share mixed reactions

Briefly News reported that The Queen has reportedly been cancelled after being on air for seven years. Apparently, the current season is the last season of the Mzansi Magic telenovela.

The show is likely to end this year. The soapie was one of the best shows in Mzansi when its late producer Shona Ferguson was still alive. It has been struggling to pull in the numbers since his passing.

Shona's wife Connie Ferguson has been trying her best to act while producing the show while still mourning the death of the love of her life. Entertainment commentator Phil Mphela reports that the show will not be renewed for another season.
