Uzalo viewers were excited to find out their favorite character Mxolisi, who played my Nay Maps, was making a comeback.

This comes after he was mentioned within the telenovela’s April teasers.

And they were glued to their screens, waiting to ascertain him.

But to their disappointment, he didn’t return.

And it looks like they’re going to never see him again on the SABC1 telenovela due to his busy schedule.

According to Uzalo teasers, viewers were getting to see the return of Mxolisi who is portrayed by Nay Maps on episode 34 on 22 April. He was getting to hijack the police helicopter.

Uzalo spokeswoman Nomfundo Zondi said the teasers were written before the scene was shot.

She confirmed that, consistent with their storyline, Mxolisi was getting to come but just for a brief while.

“Just like Mastermind (Ntokozo “TK” Dlamini), he was getting to help MaNgcobo (Dawn Thandeka King) together with her heist. We had an agreement with Nay Maps but his busy schedule clashed with the time at which he was due for a shoot. We had to form changes on the storyline. It’s not like we took our viewers for a ride.

Nay Maps was too busy. His busy schedule couldn’t allow him to return for a shoot,” said Nomfundo.

Allegations were that show also tried to approach the now Generations: The Legacy star Kay Sibiya, who played Ayanda on Uzalo, but it failed. Nomfundo confirmed the allegations.

“It was an equivalent thing with Kay. He’s busy so we couldn’t get him. But these characters were getting to appear shortly. it had been not a long-term thing,” said Nomfundo.

Nay Maps and TK were among the old actors who were said to be returning to boost Uzalo.

Others were Khaya Dladla who plays GC and Nokuthula Mabika who plays Thobile.

The strategy was allegedly to boost the amount of viewers for the telenovela after it had been allegedly given a warning by the SABC to tug up its socks.
