Uyajola 9/9

Listeners debate on whether the programme is perpetuating stereotypes when it comes to black people's relationships.

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.

The programme by Jub Jub is just for entertainment.
