Scandal audience ratings soar, as the net spins tighter around Mthunzi Mayiza. On Wednesday 27 March, over 6 million viewers tuned in to see Romeo and Chi-Chi get their revenge on Mthunzi.
This is a record number for e.tv’s primetime soapie in the Golden Hour, between 7pm and 8pm, the biggest hour on South African Television.
In true soapie style, this story has been building since Mthunzi first appeared on our screens in June 2018, and it seems that the sly businessman always has a plan to get out of a sticky situation. In recent weeks, the relentless Romeo and his confidant Chi-Chi have managed to deliver a few blows to Mthunzi’s plans.
“Mthunzi’s story has excited and frustrated viewers, because it is perhaps too much like real life, where powerful criminals seem to get away with it all. But this story has many more twists and surprises before those who are guilty will be brought to justice.
What will soon be revealed, is what the true reason is behind Mthunzi’s desire for vengeance, and it will not be what anyone expects, least of all Xolile, Chumani and Romeo. Keep watching, I’m sure you will not be disappointed”
Says Ilse van Hemert – Supervising producer at Scandal.
In the next few weeks, the viewers will learn more about Mthunzi’s past, and his motivation behind bringing down the Langa family. We will also see how far a matriarch will go to hide the secrets from her own past to protect her families’ future.
