Moja Love’s popular show No Excuses, Pay Papgeld, has been slapped with a R20 000 fine by the BCCSA, teeveetee reports.
The show was found guilty by the commission for gatecrashing a wedding and invading the groom and wedding guests’ privacy. This was ruled as breaching the broadcasting code of conduct.
The episode occurred in December 2018 in Germiston, when the Papgeld crew gatecrashed the wedding ceremony.
The man in charge has since filed a complaint at the BCCSA about the alleged illegal and unauthorised recording at his wedding and being confronted with “unresearched and unfounded” allegations.
Moja Love explained “the channel and TV crew were not aware that the man’s wedding celebration was ongoing. The intention was to go to his home to request for an interview and offer him a right of reply” and acknowledge that the “show’s presenter entered the tent”.
The BCCSA judgement; “Further shots in the promo show that the confrontation turned violent with the wedding guests joining the complainant in an attempt to chase the TV crew, who accompanied the presenter, away from the premises”.
“It is clear that the Complainant’s private life and private concerns were severely intruded upon by the presenter and filming crew of the programme when they barged into the wedding reception of the complainant.”
