Viewers of the Mzansi Magic telenovela Gqeberha: The Empire took to social media this week to share their frustrations about the telenovela’s bland storylines.

Entertainment commentator Jabu McDonald tweeted: “#GqeberhaTheEmpire really has potential and they do have a good cast but the storylines and entire production is not good, it’s disappointing to have a show that keeps on getting worse every day. This show needs a production break or be cancelled. As a viewer it discourages you to continue watching because there’s no improvement.”

Zimoja revealed on Tuesday, 18 July that the isiXhosa telenovela may be coming to an end, while Phil Mphela also announced in July that the Eastern Cape-based telenovela will not be renewed for another season when its current one ends.

Mnet rubbished reports that the show is coming to an end on Wednesday, 19 July.

Mzansi Magic fans are also disappointed with actress Akhenime Mfenyane’s character Anathi, who is pregnant with Thulani’s (Tembinkosi Ngcukana) baby.

Audiences feel disrespected by the show and feel the production doesn’t take them seriously as Anathi’s baby bump resembles a soccer ball.

@boitytaughthem said: “We are fools here because why would they even think it’s ok to show us a belly that looks like this.”

@SinazoA tweeted: “The shape looks like clothes have been stuffed. They don’t take viewers seriously.”

@_ThabisileM: “Mzansi Magic can give us a rerun of The Queen, from season 1.”

@AfrikanChefZA: “Very bad. Even my gullible aunt told me straight up that the show is trash.”

@MoalusiPea47192: “My advice watch Smoke and Mirrors on etc. it plays same time as Gqeberha.”

@Mandlela9: “I wonder what went wrong cause it started with a bang and went south quickly, so disappointing.”
