Connie and Shona Ferguson are behind
some of the biggest hits on SA TV, like Rockville, Igazi to The Queen.
But it looks like fans aren’t too
taken by their latest offering, Mzansi Magic’s The Imposter.
The show stars Thishiwe Ziqubu in the
dual roles of twins Matshepo and Mantwa.
Matshepo lives a charmed life while
Mantwa has just escaped from a lengthy stint in jail.
The convict decides to hold her
sister hostage while infiltrating her twin’s life – queue lots and lots of drama.
Of her characters, Thishiwe recently
wrote on Twitter, “In two minds, I want Matshepo to get rescued but don't want
Mantwa to be caught #TheImposterYesterday.”
The show is currently trending, but
for all the wrong reasons.
Even though it has its loyal followers its
detractors are many – and they’re rather vocal about the show’s ridiculousness.
Here are some of their tweets.
