A decade later Friends Like These is undergoing a revamp. Season 13 is airs every Saturday at 18h00 pm which will end early 2016.

SABC1 Mzansi Fo Sho continues on the quest to improve on its content offering by introducing fresh formats as well as refreshing current popular shows on its schedule.

Zandile Nkonyeni, Head of PR: SABC TV Channels: “SABC 1 is sad to part ways with DJ Sbu (Sbusiso Leope) after so many years of working together.  He has grown with the channel over the years and the time to move on has come. The channel will be resuming the process of identifying suitable replacement(s) to steer the show to greater heights soon.”

Friends Like These is introducing a whole lot of new elements including:  better and more exciting games and a new face or two of the show.

Sibusiso DJ Sbu Leope says: “I am humbled to have worked with Urban Brew, BBC and SABC1 to create such a successful game show. Its time to move on to bigger challenges as a youth leader in Business and Community Projects through my Foundation, I am excited about my future endeavours in the Business world. It's about time I pass on the baton to younger fresh talent. It's going to be an exciting 2016. I'm looking forward to seeing the show grow from strength to strength. I still will be part of the show from the sidelines to advise and give guidance wherever I can, to make sure that the show continues to be the success it has been for the past decade. Wishing the new team well in their new challenge,” he adds.

The channel will soon communicate the developments once all the new elements are put in place.
