TVSA reports that series creator Phathu Makwarela, who is Executive Producer at Tshedza Pictures confirmed The River is cancelled after six seasons:

“When we created The River seven years ago, we knew that we wanted to tell a story that will have a definite ending. Now on its sixth season, we feel the time is right to bring the story of these beloved characters to an end, on our own terms and when viewers still treasure the show.”

Koffman also revealed to Sowetan that she is launching her YouTube variety talk show series called Half a Corner Kouch.


The podcaster and comedian Tsitsi Chiumya, who hails from Limpopo is a qualified game designer.

He joined Robot Boii (Mzwakhe Mbuli Junior) and Mpho Popps Modikoane’s podcast, Popcorn and Cheese in 2023.

Popcorn and Cheese falls under popular podcaster Macgyver Mukwevho (aka MacG), who is better known for his Podcast and Chill offering.

TshisaLIVE reports that Chiumya’s comedy career kicked off as a result of some insistent prodding from a friend after he spent his youth making Jackass-style videos.

”I’ve been lucky. I’m a video game designer, the first black video game designer to graduate from Wits. So, I was already attracting attention. It didn’t immediately translate into comedy, but it made me more interesting as a person.”
