South Africans angry that Nigerians made DSTV cancel transgender's show
A number of South African subscribers to DSTV are unhappy that the network chose to stop airing "I am Cait" after Nigerians complained about it.
According to reports from the country, South Africa’s Channel 24 entertainment site reports that the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) ordered that the show be pulled, effectively censoring it for African viewers.
Multichoice Nigeria then did as the commission asked, and pulled down the popular transgender-themed reality TV series, 'I am Cait' which centres around Caitlyn Jenner, a transgender woman formerly know as Bruce Jenner.
Angry South African viewers took to social media platform, Instagram, to express their annoyance, laying blame at the feet of the Nigerian Broadcast Commission and Nigerians for the removal of the TV show.
The cancellation of the show marks the second time a transgender show was cut off from being broadcasted in Nigeria. The first instance was when 'I am Jazz', a reality docu-series following a transgender teenager, was cancelled last year.
