Is the television show Uyajola 9/9 perpetuating stereotypes on black love?
Uyajola 9/9 is a television programme that serves to expose infidelity in relationships and the dramatic confrontations for the whole world to see.
Aubrey Masango on The Clement Manyathela Show shared with listeners that he is increasingly becoming uncomfortable with the television show’s content as he views it as perpetuating certain stereotypes about black people and the difficulties they find in their relationships.
Callers engaged with Masango on the open line about their views on reality TV shows, with many arguing that the show is for entertainment.

Many argued that there are many television programmes and entertaining advertisements that were exposing a caricature of the South African society in a way that makes us look like a laughing stock to the rest of the world.
