    Recession has recessed everything in this country. Is it not a sponsor that is running a buoyant business that will be able to afford sponsoring such a show?!

    Well done to the government. ?

    Sad to hear. Maybe Etisalat can fill the slot. They could use the good publicity.

      U dunno what’s happening to Etisalat rn? LOL. They are in trouble o. Great debt. Looking for the best exit strategy atm. A TV show is the least of their interests tbh.
