Adrian Zammit, Malta’s newest and best social media influencer, has suddenly disappeared, just as quickly as he appeared.
Adrian hasn’t uploaded an episode of his popular Facebook programme, which runs three times a week on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday, for weeks – and his fans have been left high and dry, wondering what happened to their new favourite Maltese show.
“If you are not going to do the programme again you should at least state it, that’s what good manners are,” one fan said under a recently uploaded photo of Adrian’s – and that fan is not alone.
The story goes back to Sunday, 6th October – the day Adrian officially announced he had gotten into a relationship.
His fans could already see the writing on the wall at this point, with many people moving between congratulations and worry about what it might mean for the programme. And with nearly 1,000 reactions and 400 comments piling up, it was clear that the people were getting riled up.
“Congratulations… now make sure you don’t stop doing the program, ta’,” one Maltese man said.
“Drop an episode tonight and tell us who the lucky girl is king,” said another.
Unfortunately for them though, another episode was not dropped that night. Indeed, an episode hasn’t been aired since Wednesday 2nd October.
Adrian hasn’t left social media though, and that’s what’s so strange to fans.
Even though he hasn’t uploaded an episode for weeks, Adrian has still been posting semi-regularly… and he’s even been up in the comments sections of other posts mentioning him.
Last week, he shared a Lovin Malta article about himself… before quickly hiding it from his timeline after the comments section became inundated with people complaining about him ignoring his show.
Maltese super-athlete Fabio Spiteri helped fuel the fire by uploading a pretty epic picture of himself as Adrian, using some of the Marsa-man’s most famous keywords.
Within a day, Adrian himself had commented, leading to Fabio proposing a joint show together on cycling…. to which he got no reply.
Whatever it is, Adrian, please; listen to the cries of the Maltese people and bring your show back.
Without his regular discussions, water-bottle squirts and of course Goffy the bulldog gracing our social media weekly, life in Malta just isn’t the same.
Fans had developed a strong connection sitting at the table with Adrian in his home… now, fans are lost and confused, and we are all just left feeling like cretins.
