OSN, a Dubai-based broadcaster and arguably the biggest TV subscription service in the Middle East and North Africa, has taken the decision not to broadcast the show on its network ahead of its premiere, because it believes Trevor wont be a fan favourite.
The move has been met with confusion by South Africans living in Dubai and across the Middle East. In 2009, a report indicated that there were at least 50 000 South Africans living in Dubai alone, with it being nicknamed 'South Africa's 10th province.' It's a number that has since increased dramatically.
Trevor's popularity across the UAE is also evident in his sold-out gigs, with the funny man set to return to Dubai in late October to perform at the Dubai Comedy Festival.
