SABC’s original deal with High Rollers cast members was cut down from June 2017 to December 2016 leaving them with only a few short weeks of employment to go before the show comes to an abrupt end
In the wake of the news, seasoned actress Masasa Mbangeni lashed out, exclaiming her dismay in regards to the SABC’s conduct and sudden decision to cut the show and leave the cast jobless.
The SABC is cancelling High Rollers and had assured the actors they had work till June Next year . Now it’s till December— Masasa (@MsMasasa) November 21, 2016
Earlier on Friday afternoon the production company for the series ‘High Rollers’, ‘Rous House Productions’ confirmed that the SABC had informed them that they would not be renewing their contract with the Production company.
Masasa pleaded with them to stop asking actors to work for a salary so minuscule that it would be the same as asking them to work for free.
I BEG you to stop asking actors / contract workers to do work for free.U are the first to laugh in Sunday tabloids when we can’t pay bills
