Nice, wonder what the theme will be?, whoever gets to produce it will have to be creative otherwise it will be a massive failure.

According to the report, traditional leaders from Mozambique and Mpumalanga complained that certain ethnic groups have been marginalised.
Then they should take it up with the Mozambique Public Broadcaster. What the hell has it got to do with the South African Public Broadcaster?

Odd indeed, that must have made Hlaudi so proud seeing that some other Africans are depending on him for their TV entertainment.

I guess the producer who will be getting this lovely contract must be a good friend?

30 seconds advert during Muvhango(Venda soapie) is 300k, just saying. Cooperate South Africa still pays

Is Muvhango really a Venda soapie? You have main characters there who speak Zulu, Tswana, Sotho and Pedi in addition to Venda characters.

It has evolved from being just a Tshivenda soapie and it has included other languages but in terms of the the culture being portrayed there it is still promoting Tshivenda culture over all the others.

I do think it might not be a good idea to introduce a soapie at this moment in time rather a drama to test the waters first and see the response from the viewers.

Don't know why they would make a show that's in a language that's not an official South African language.
