One of the long-standing SABC soapies “Isidingo: The Need” is romoured to have been cancelled. According to various reports, the show is canned due to low ratings.
According to Sunday World, a source told the publication that that the soapie had been failing to attract advertisers.
The SABC3 prime time soapie attracts around 980 000 viewers on weeknights at 7pm. It features popular actors such as Aubrey Poo, Linda Sokhulu and Katlego Danke.
