Everyone is ‘talking about our Hlaudi’

2017-04-25 07:40

SO 90% local programming content for the SABC and private broadcasters is the most brilliant idea ever?

Does Hlaudi Motsoeneng want South Africa to change from a minerals, commerce and finance economy to purely an entertainment producing economy? How else to fill up all DStv’s hundreds of channels?

Also, what if the world does not buy South African content, are we to become a self-sustaining economy purely on local entertainment content?

Motsoeneng is definitely an illeist, which is the term used to refer to a person who refers to himself or herself in the third person.

Did anybody notice how he is so convinced that the entire world is “talking about Hlaudi Motsoeneng”, as if this is a good thing?

U.S. President Donald Trump and the actor/wrestler The Rock are two other illeists but why does our Motsoeneng have to be like this?

Is it because he is so vain and it is the only way he can get somebody to compliment him in public, or is it because he wants to distance himself from drawing a R350 000 monthly salary from the SABC after he has been put on suspension?
