Isibaya To Close Down Its Curtains On The 2nd Of April

Isibaya will air its last episode on Mzansi Magic come the 2nd of April after being on air for a stint comprising of eight seasons.

“The series is proof that a little dream can change the trajectory of many people, all one has to do is return to one’s own unique talents. For the entire cast and crew of Isibaya, the honour of telling the story of what seemed to be the tumultuous taxi industry which connects people to home, also really became about coming home to our own quest for excellence as individuals and as an industry,” said Executive producer of Isibaya, Desireé Markgraaff.

The drama series which airs every weekday at 20h30 (C.A.T) is set on the backdrop of the taxi industry with two young lovers torn apart by two powerful families.
Although it’s not yet clear why the popular drama series has decided to call it quits many drama series across the country have either been cancelled or had their slots reduced. A number of factors have been posed as the main cause which include the COVID-19 pandemic and the momentum that is being gained by online streaming services such as Showmax and Netflix which have exclusive and intriguing content as compared to the locally bred shows.

Moreover, a couple of days ago, SABC cut the airing days of some of the country’s oldest and most-watched telenovelas, Muvhango and 7de Laan from airing five times a week to three times a week, a move which has since received a lot of backslash from fans. However, in its excuse the public broadcaster defended the move citing that it needed to include more vernacular telenovelas hence, the reason of the trimming in time slots
