Nxumalo informed her fans and following a few months ago that she was officially jobless. She revealed that she intended to pursue her career as content creator full-time. She did, however, imply that she might go back to acting.

Nxumalo, who portrayed Phakamile Mdletshe, Jojo Kubeka’s lover, will be moving on to explore other projects, Scandal! has confirmed. The character of Phakamile was introduced to the show when she was prostituting herself. She was trying to provide for her two siblings Mbuso and Nqobile. But that soon ended when she met Jojo Kubeka, and they both fell in love.


Phakamile did not become a trophy girlfriend when she got into a relationship with Jojo. She still kept her independence by finding work at Uthuli Waste. This was so that she could continue to look after her siblings.Her natural instinct to be a carer was also the reason that ended her fairy tale relationship with Jojo. This happened when she tried to help Jojo get out of debt.

Nxumalo expressed: “Playing Phakamile has been such a beautiful experience. I enjoyed every single moment because I feel like I grew so much. Working with the team that successfully grew me as an actor has been such an honour. Thank you so much to Ochre Media and e.tv. For the growth opportunity that you guys have given me.

“For all that you guys have done for me, I am very, very appreciative. I wish Scandal! all the best, and I’m so glad to have been a part of this amazing winning team.” Sanele Zulu, series producer of the Scandal Production Team, said working with Nxumalo has left them craving more. But sometimes, in most cases, the story pushes you in a direction that you might not have anticipated.

“Thank you, Lerato, for doing a fantastic job in portraying Phakamile and sharing you
