Seven years ago, Mzansi was introduced to Mzansi Magic’s Isibaya, which is set in the backdrop of the taxi industry. But the screen is now closing on the popular telenovela and it will be replaced by a new production called Diepsloot.A second source said: “The new show will take over the slot. Black Brain Productions is taking over that slot from Bomb Productions, which produces Isibaya.”
According to a third source, the new show was hired straight after the decision was made to can Isibaya. “We knew in October that the show was coming to an end. It’s the end of an era because at one point the show was big,” said the source.
