According to ZiMoja, the cast and crew working for the production company have resorted to protesting. A disgruntled employee slammed the company and said:

"They sent out letters saying payments were delayed, but this is nonsense. Why do we always have to go to the media to expose them for us to be paid? We worked so pay, it's that simple."

The actors shared that they all got paid before the Easter weekend. This claim was widely refuted by the production company

Gagasi considers legal action in Penny Ntuli's saga

In a previous report from Briefly News, Gagasi FM reportedly considered taking legal action against former presenter Penny Ntuli. She shared a statement revealing how much the station was paying her, leading social media to paint the station as exploitative.

“At the time, she was still contracted at the station. For her to go public on such matters is a breach of contract. Something like that necessitates legal action."

Despite this, Mzansi continues to stand by Penny, dragging the station for spending money on lawyers and not their talent.
