A couple of hours ago, a content creator accused Pearl Modiadie and the SABC of stealing her content idea for a designing competition. Taking to Twitter, Glodine Makapela accused Pearl Modiadie as well as the SABC of "stealing" her concept for a designer reality show, a claim Pearl denied.

SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago told TshisaLIVE that while it was difficult for them to verify and investigate such a claim if it hadn't been formally submitted to them‚ they were confident in their commissioning processes.  

"It is really difficult for the SABC to verify any such claims without the producer/individual formally submitting their claim. They can submit their written complaint to Blessed Katiyo, who is the Commissioning Manager."  

He then went on to add that the show was commissioned from a list of submissions sent to the SABC in 2014. Kganyago explained that a detailed process was followed to evaluate the proposal before it was selected.
