Rhythm City was amongst the most watched soapies in SA however they still got canned. Etv has decided to put a smile on their faces by remunerating them with farewell cheques, which should be able to sustain them for a while until they get work.

Entertainment commentator Phil Mphela broke the news and his narrator Sine the voice artist said, "In an unprecedented move in South African television industry, we have it on good authority, that eMedia investments, a company that owns the Etv channel will be remunerating the cast and crew of the show with some farewell bonuses."

"Etv confirmed that there will be money given as farewell gift to the people working on the show...The cash is not specifically a severance package but it has been worked out within the ambit of labour law."

Managing Director at e.tv, Marlon Davids said in a statement at the time: "E.tv continues to look forward to fulfilling its mandate of producing exceptional and relevant local content, and the production has successfully achieved its part of the obligation throughout the past 13 years. Rhythm City has secured its place in e.tv's history books, and a legacy mark has been made.
