Content creator Glodine ‘Vuvu’ Makapela has accused Pearl Modiadie of Raw Silk and David Tlale of The Intern, as well as the SABC of “stealing” her concept for a designer reality show.

Tlale has denied the accusations  and Pearl insists has nothing to do with her.

This comes after Makapela called out Modiadie in a Twitter post on Tuesday: “This is my concept. I pitched to u pearl 2013 u said u cudnt be a part cos u worked at a diff channel. half of sabc was sent concept, we shot pilot with the designers – they own the show! @SaraBaartjies @morphe_clothing @lloydhotsense @ChocolatePout etc (sic)” she wrote.

Vuvu told TshisaLIVE that her original concept, which she claims she had copyrights to since 2011, had pieces of it stolen to create both Raw Silk for SABC 1 and David Tlale: The Intern for SABC 3.

“I just want them to compensate the idea they stole. Copyright is copyright. Before we go the legal route, they must understand that we’re giving them a chance to come clean. If it was us who stole this idea from them, they were gonna drag our names to the gutter,” said Vuvu.
