Yaa neh! 2020 has put an end to a lot of our favourite activities and should we mention TV programmes? Now we have to say goodbye to Rhythm City…
On Friday e.tv announced that the popular soapie which was recently voted best TV soap at this year’s SAFTAS (South African Film and Television Awards) and has 5.2 million viewers is coming to an end.
Having started back in 2007, e.tv’s managing director, Marlon Davids, says it has secured itself in the history books. The last episode will air on 16 July 2021.
“e.tv continues to look forward to fulfilling its mandate of producing exceptional and relevant local content, and the production has successfully achieved its part of the obligation throughout the past 13 years. Rhythm City has secured its place in e.tv’s history books, and a legacy mark has been made. We want to extend our gratitude to the entire production staff, crew, and cast for their incomparable craft,” he said.
They are working towards finalising plot lines and another local drama is said to replace the iconic soapie.
