South Africa’s most loved soapie Generations is having trouble, again!

South Africa’s most loved soapie Generations is having trouble, again!  Some of the soapie’s leading actors are ready to sue or strike over royalties. They have even consulted a lawyer to represent them. The soapie which failed to record some upcoming episodes this week due to the actors taking time off to consult a lawyer is the most watched in the country. Even though these squabbles started last year after the actors filed court papers for royalties owed over the past 21 years.

However Mfundi Vundla, who created the show is not alarmed by the recent developments. He commented saying that the money issues are not his or his production company Morula Pictures issue, but said it’s between the actors and the SABC.

With over 6 million viewers daily, one wonders what will happen if the actors decide to take a strike?  Will the main characters be replaced or will the parties involve contain the drama before it escalates?
