“Living The Dream With Somizi” Producer Addresses Claims He Stole Another Show

In a tweet uploaded on September 30, South African television producer and director Legend Manqele has talked about allegations that he stole another show.

A Sunday World report states that Khuzani Mpungose’s reality show was stolen from Musa Buthelezi.

Musa Buthelezi, a producer from KwaZulu-Natal, claimed that Legend Manqele “hijacked” Mpungose’s show and then sold it to the South African Broadcasting Corporation without his permission.

South African television producer and director Legend Manqele has talked about allegations that he stole another show.

According to Buthelezi, he and Thuli Zulu, his colleague had a meeting with Mpungose in Umhlanga back in 2017 to ask for his permission for the filming of a reality show called Khuzani The Maskandi King.

He continued saying that he was taken aback when he learned that Legend Manqele was the show’s producer. However, in a tweet, the produce of “Living the Dream With Somizi” refuted the allegations made against him.

The producer went to Twitter to address the claims. He also attached to the tweet screenshots of two Sunday World articles to confirm which claims he was talking about.

Legend Manqele state the following three points:

  • He has never leaked anything to any media platform or any individual.
  • He has never stolen any show.
  • He is not going to give up.

Mthokozisi Zuma, Mpungose’s manager, said that while Buthelezi was the first to approach them with the show’s concept, they eventually decided to work with Manqele after Buthelezi didn’t meet the deadlines for the show’s production.

His remark about him not “leaking” anything is almost certainly a response to the rumor that he disclosed “Mohale’s confessions.”

His remark about him not “leaking” anything is almost certainly a response to the rumor that he disclosed “Mohale’s confessions.” Sunday World obtained confidential audio clips between Legend and Somizi’s former spouse, Mohale Motaung, in August.

The audio clips revealed shocking revelations, including allegations of cheating, a.b.u.s.e., and more.

This isn’t the first time for the producer of “Living the Dream With Somizi” to be accused of stealing a show. Back in 2020, a man called Hastings Moeng claimed that he was the one to come up with the idea for Dinner At Somizi’s.

He filed a lawsuit against both Somizi and Manqele. However, the problem has remained unresolved since then.
