The show (Zaziwa) invited accomplished South African Television personalities to share the music that helped shape their life. The show airs every Sundays at 20:30 on SABC 1.
Zaziwa hosted South Africa’s crème de la crème such as Melusi Yeni, Rebecca Malope, Somizi Mhlongo, Kgomotso Christopher, Robert Marawa, Motlatsi Mafatshe, Mlangeni Nawa, Bonang Matheba, Bonnie Henna, Thapelo Mokoena, Zizo Beda, DJ Cleo, Lerato Kganyago, Thembsie Matu, Gabriel Temudzani, Brenda Ngxoli, Luthuli Dlamini, Atandwa Kani, Mandla Gaduka, Mzwandile Ngubeni, Tumi Morake, Aaron Moloisi, Luthando Shosha, Andile Ncube, Deborah Fraser, Hlubi Mboya, Black Coffee and DJ Fresh to cut a long list short.
The level of unprofessionalism at the state broadcaster is appalling and disgusting.
On Thursday the SABC also spat on Masechaba Ndlovu’s face when they cancelled her interview with Mo Flava on The Morning Flava, Metro FM. They later made a U-turn and allowed the interview to take place on Friday, following a great public demand and outcry.
