Trouble in paradise or rather at the Live AMP music show. A source claimed the two presenters will be hosting their last show on 7 February.
More changes are coming as the show will move from its usual time slot 9pm to 7:30pm on SABC 1 and will air for only 30 minutes.
“This is happening as the SABC is beefing up to compete with opposition,” said a source. The source also claimed Luthando “Lootlove” Shosha has survived the chop.
“We were all shocked when we saw the call sheet for 12 February,” said another source.
A third source said there were too many issues with the running of the show, which led to the shake-up.
“The show wasn’t working. The artists were on every week due to the ties they had with people there. Because of many complaints, the SABC had to act,”
Insiders said Pearl and DJ Warras failed to impress, but LootLove’s positive public reviews put her in good favour with the SABC.
“She’s been taking her fashion sense seriously and it’s paying off,” said the source.
SABC spokesman, Kaizer Kganyago, said: “We’re busy with rescheduling. We’ll make an announcement soon.”
Pearl said: “I know my comment is never good enough unless it’s something bad. Yes, it’s true.
“But the show’s producer, Sjula Dlamini, will give you comment.”
LootLove’s phone rang unanswered and DJ Warras couldn’t be reached on both his numbers.
Sjula said: “We’re busy with funeral preparations of our colleague Marvin Cohen’s child. Please, call me some other time.”
We know at Entertainment SA that even though the pair has been booted out of the show their careers in the Entertainment industry will definitely flourish further and we wish them all the best
