The SABC and production company Cake Media have assured viewers that The Braai Show with Cassper Nyovest will air uninterrupted, despite all the legal drama with former host AKA over his exclusion from the second season.
The show is expected to premiere on Wednesday with former Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi being the first guest.
Other guests for the rest of the season include Makhadzi, Lekau Sehaona, Mihlali Ndamase, Presley Chweneyagae, Somizi Mhlongo and Dingaan Thobela.
Both the public broadcaster and Cake Media told Sowetan on Tuesday that they were confident that AKA, real name Kiernan Forbes, will not pursue court action that will attempt to stop the show from airing.
They confirmed that two weeks ago, AKA applied for an urgent court interdict but later withdrew the application.
“The SABC would like to reiterate that The Braai Show with Cassper will continue as planned and the urgent court application in question has been withdrawn,” said Gugu Ntuli, SABC group executive for corporate affairs and marketing.
