The production of Shaka iLembe Season 2 is facing a legal obstacle as the families of tribal leaders involved in the show are taking legal action to prevent its airing on Mzansi Magic.
The core issue is alleged misrepresentation by the production company, Bomb Productions.
Nomsa Philiso, the General Entertainment CEO of MultiChoice, expressed gratitude for the support the series has received.
She goes on to say, “The fact that viewers across South Africa, and indeed the continent, have been so passionately supportive of the show, tuning in to watch weekly, sharing their commentary online, and really engaging with this layered story of the Nguni Kingdoms, has been fantastic. We are now looking forward to bringing season 2 to life.”
The legal battle has put the production of Shaka iLembe Season 2 on hold, creating uncertainty about its future.
