The Showmax reality dating show Bae Beyond Borders finally premiered and it received a very nonchalant reception from online users.
All about Bae Beyond Borders
The dating show sees four South African women looking for love who are given the option to date 12 Nigerian men.
At first, they all start speed-dating online and this narrows the men down to eight. The women then travel from South Africa to Nigeria to meet the men who impressed them. From there, the number gets narrowed even further to four.
The men who they see a future with will travel back home with them to Cape Town and they will spend the remainder of the episodes at a villa.
The series premiered on 23 October and airs every Monday on Showmax.
Mzansi slams Bae Beyond Borders
Commenting under entertainment commentator Phil Mphela's tweet about the show, Mzansi was highly unimpressed. Many were put off by the trailer and immediately decided that it was not worth their time.
"Rubbish show as always... what a waste."
" 'Graduation Beyond Borders' helping South African graduates find jobs abroad. There. I fixed it."
"None of these people are in a relationship after the show!! Couldn't they come up with something like 'Catching Drug Dealers' or something that is contributing positively to our country?"
"Hope it receives less ratings and viewership and get cancelled. Tired of these shows."
"The showman dating show features 4 South African gullible females and 12 Nigerian males who are looking for an opportunity to get South African residence papers. None of the 12 will walk away on any principle because principles stay being put aside by Nigerians."
"This show falls in the pool of Twitter trends that lazy executives thought would make great television. MojaLove has a lot of this too. The show will trend because it is made for Twitter and clickbait. It will do nothing for South Africans or Nigerians."
"I hear people crying about Moja Love’s portrayal of black people neh. But Showmax is trying its best to take the spot. Actually, MultiChoice as a whole nje seems to have an anti-black agenda. This is divisive like most of their shows are desperately trying to be."
2 Local women accuse Showmax of theft
In a previous report from Briefly News, two South African women accused Showmax of stealing the concept of Bae Beyond Borders.
Assuming that their accusations were true, Mzansi called Showmax out for alleged copyright infringement. A lady went on TikTok to show that they had approached the media for assistance to get the show up and running but they were rejected.
