Photo by: Google

The popular television soapie, Rhythm City, is set to end next year and a new local show is taking over its spot. It’s last episode will air in July 2021.

Mzansi was taken aback and crashed by the confirmation that indeed the 13 year old soapie is coming to a sudden conclusion

The Channel, E.tv, where the show airs announced on Friday in a statement. According to Times live the states the decision to pull the popular soapie out of the channel was influenced by a  business strategy which included reviewing the show’s on air-life cycle.

The show started airing on the 9 of July 2007. Rhythm City revolves around the struggles of surviving Jozi Johannesburg. It all starts in a two roomed home and the experiences follow two empires in the entertainment space; The Generos and the Ndlovus and how their heirs want to dominate the scene. Our characters try to navigate around the affluent and aspirational lifestyles of the city. Past rivalries, industry conflicts, infidelity, backstabbing, sexuality, love, and pain, good and evil are the order of the day as the story plays out moving from between the township to the suburbs.

“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,” said Marlon Davids, e.tv managing director. 

It managed to pull a hefty number of viewers over the years. At its peaked it attracted over five million adult viewers this year and has has been among the top-10 most watched soapies in the country.

Throughout the most recent couple of months the show additionally lost a portion of its long-standing leads, including Jamie Bartlett (David Genaro), Samkelo Ndlovu (Lerato) and Amo Chidi (Rene)

The decision to end the sure was surely not easy information for the Rhythm city cast and crew to digest. 

Actress Mapula Mafole, who plays Mapula on the soapie, seemed very unhappy, while Thishiwe Ziqubu said a prayer for the cast and crew to find other jobs.

Fans devastated by the news

A list of where to Shot-left to this December (LOCAL IS LEKKER!!!)

Tiny quaint towns do not have to be a thing of the past now that travelling outside the country has become an anxiety-filled process. Explore right here at home, keep safe and be sure to have a blast!

Port Alfred– The city of Venice in Italy is most famous for its boating life like the simple task of popping out to a grocery store requires a boat, luckily though, you do not have to board any plane to experience this thrilling life because you can do it right ‘next door’ here in our very own Mzansi.

The Eastern Cape is famous for its quaint villages, the dripping snows during winter, its coastal areas and of course, the language with the click: Xhosa. The exquisite picture above is a marina situated in Port Alfred, a tiny town in the Eastern Cape. The marina is built surrounding the Kowie River which is seen flowing in between the houses to the blue Indian Ocean- leaving the place beaming with beach houses, hotels and boats for hire. If you truly need to unwind whether, with friends, family or even host a wedding, take a shot left to the town that floats (well almost.) Activities to keep you entertained are listed here.

South Broom– At the beginning of the year, Mzansi went on a craze upon hearing about this tiny town on Twitter. Taken aback by its chilled green forests and dark blue oceans, Mzansi fell in love with this coastal village- reports claim that visits and random ‘stops for a picture’ have since gradually increased. With a population of just under 2000 according to census 2011, South Broom is perfect for a little getaway. The coastal village is based in the north of KwaZulu-Natal and is graced with white sands and blue calm beaches. The green coastal forest just a few kilometres from the town is great for a weekend camp. If getting away from the city to connect with Mother Nature, this sure should entice you. Check out below some awesome stuff to get up to during your stay!

Bela-Bela– The Limpopo province is well-known for its abundantly rich agricultural sphere and now, giving us the famous Bela-Bela, a resort in Limpopo with a Sotho derived verb meaning ‘Boiling-Boiling’. The verb is linked to the famous town’s hot springs which are the essential tourist attraction. The driving distance from Johannesburg and the Bela-Bela is approximately 172.3km meaning a 2-hour drive at the least. Some recommended accommodations include Elephant Springs Hotel & Apartment, Shangri-La Country Hotel & Spa and Leopards Rock Bush Boutique all within the price range starting from R500. For daily activities, you can visit the Mabalingwe Nature Reserve, go zip lining at Waterberg Adventures or check out the crocodile farm at Thaba Kwena Crocodile Farm.

Dolphin Coast (Ballito)– Do you have a child obsessed with dolphins or you simply cannot get over these sweet shiny creatures yourself? The northern- coast of KwaZulu Natal is a place for you. Bottlenose dolphins can be spotted frequently parading themselves in the Indian Ocean waves. Although KZN weather is generally inviting all year-’round- September to December is the best time for whale and dolphin spotting all for free. Accommodation is widely accessible as the place is amongst the tourist A-list hotspot Zimbali.

God’s Window (Mpumalanga)– Forget the Amazon Rain Forest and marvel the open green air of God’s Window in the Mpumalanga Province. God’s window stretches as far as a 250km view of lush green mountains and exotic plants.

To witness the famous views to the exotic plants and the dewy forest, steer away from the crowd and climb up a bit. This is a place excellent for hikers, make sure to carry your refreshments as the walk can get a bit strenuous. Some accommodations close by include; The Ukuthula cottages (10,7km) away from God’s Window and The Blyde Canyon, A Forever Resort (4,5km) away, both with prices starting from R1000. With just R10 entrance fee to the resort, you truly have no excuse to not come witness nature put on a show!
