‘DIEPCITY’ IN TROUBLE?  

Mzansi Magic’s latest telenovela – DiepCity has lost over 100k fans over the past four months.   

Viewers are losing interest in the show and have taken to social media to complain about the show’s storylines.   

The show also competes with SABC1’s most-watched soapie – Uzalo which also airs at 20:30.  

Fans were excited when the show replaced Isibaya in 2021 as its cast includes some of Mzansi’s most-talented stars such as the award-winning actress Dawn Thandeka King, Giyani: Land of Blood actor Obed Baloyi and the award-winning actors Mduduzi Mabaso and Hamilton Dlamini.
