Entertainment commentator Phil Mphela burst many people's bubble when he reported that Katlego Maboe's return to Expresso did not perform miracles for their ratings. 

The blogger alleged that although people celebrated Katlego's return, not much can be said about the people who actually tuned in to watch, as there weren't that many. 

"Katlego Maboe trended for few days with his return to Expresso celebrated. The show pulled below 250k viewers peak and didn’t make SABC3 Top 20 in August. Even his exclusive return interview did not chart," tweeted the blogger. 

He then went on to ask people" Why did you not watch?"
The responses were simple, people love Katlego Maboe but do not care much for Expresso. 

One would think with Maboe back, rating would get a little better. Even his exclusive interview which was hyped on social media did not give the show the boost in ratings they probably anticipated. 

In the interview, Maboe spoke about his life during and after the drama with baby mama Monique Muller. 

“A lot has changed. I didn’t know what this would feel like, It felt good. It felt welcoming, like home. Just a home that you haven’t seen in a long time," he opened up.“No matter what has happened to me over the past couple of years, I never want to let go of this desire that I have, to be a force of positivity in people’s lives. There was a moment when I thought the darkest thoughts. I thought wouldn’t it be better if it was just done? Just quickly. Now. Done. My family wouldn’t have to worry about having to call me every day and deal with me”.

“There have been many touch-and-go moments where my self-identity was questioned, but I worked my way through it with support from friends and family and people who I met in person or on social media who have constantly told me to ‘Get up and start again’.”
