M-Net denies reports of canceling Gqeberha: The Empire. Over the past couple of days, it was rumored that the telenovela will be canceled after the first season due to a lack of funds and poor treatment of actors.
An actor spoke to Zimoja, disclosing their sufferings.
“There have been more bad things happening on this production than good. We have tried to cover up the mess but it is too much now. Actors are underpaid and some starve on set,” says the source.
According to TshishaLIVE, M-Net confirmed that the show which replaced The Queen is going nowhere.
“The channel can confirm that Gqeberha: The Empire is scheduled to remain on air for the foreseeable future. Plans are in progress for the next season, further details will be communicated in due course.”
“Mzansi Magic has just been made aware of the allegations of mistreatment of cast. We take such allegations seriously and we will be reaching out to the production house to verify the same.
“Gqeberha: The Empire has been welcomed by our audiences as a great avenue to connect with the beautiful region of the Eastern Cape and we are proud of what this project has achieved in this province,” M-Net said.
