Another Mzansi’s popular and fan-favorite soapie ‘ISIBAYA’ is biting the dust. The channel has confirmed to TVSA that Isibaya has been cancelled. The soapie will wrap after eight seasons and 2026 episodes.
“It’s always sad when a show that was popular and loved ends, as it is the case with Isibaya. However, times change and television is about adopting and adapting.
As Mzansi Magic, we are thrilled about the new partnership with Black Brains Productions. They will be bringing in fresh content that is innovative and captivating.
Furthermore, the other exciting element is the fact that this is their first telenovela production. It is a great opportunity for Black Brains to broaden their base and creativity. Our platforms are fundamentally created to help producers to grow and reach new frontiers, “Nomsa Philiso, Director for Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net.
As stated above, fans can look forward to a new telenovela from Black Brains and M-net, Mzansi magic.
Isibaya came to our screens back in 2013 with household names such as Siyabonga Thwala, Pallance Dladla, Celeste Ntuli, Nomzamo Mbatha, Sdumo Mtshali and Abdul Khoza. The show centres around the taxi industry, predominately in KwaZulu-Natal. It tells the story of the battle for wealth and power between two rival families, the Zungus and the Ndlovus.
