Actor and musician Motlatsi Mafatshe has voiced his frustration over Isidingo‘s executive’s decision of announcing its cancellation.
He spoke to Metro FM this Friday and revealed that the cast was not addressed and found out on Twitter. “They could have done it gracefully. The majority of people, the actors, found out on Twitter. That is so distasteful. When a blogger founds out first that a show is going to be canned,” he said.
The actor feels like the actors were not appreciated enough. “For a show that has been there for 21 years, you would want to celebrate the artists. It leaves a bad taste that maybe the performers or the people who work there aren’t good enough.”
The Thando singer also questioned the reasons behind the cancellation. “There’s no way you can tell me the show isn’t getting any ad time. Maybe the reason behind canning the show is that they have a new show or they want to rebrand. That’s all good and well but it felt sad the way it happened?” he explained.
