This is how Warren Masemol’s Alex Khadzai is leaving House of Zwide

Warren Masemola is the acclaimed actor who can boast of having five SAFTA award wins throughout his illustrious career in film, television, and theatre.

This feat by an actor is not usually achieved by an actor that plays a single character for years on end. Instead, it is played by an actor that continually looks towards finding different and dynamic characters.

As such, Masemola did that when he joined the cast of House of Zwide back in September 2022 as the title antagonist of the A-storyline of the soapie. As reported at the time:

Funani’s worst nightmare is about to enter the House Of Zwide walls. The newest addition to the hit eTV drama series is said to be Funani Zwide’s biggest and oldest rival.

The multi-talented and extremely versatile actor Warren Masemola has joined House of Zwide to play the character Alex Khadzi…

“Alex is a high-flier, and his biggest achievements include featuring on the Forbes’ “30 under 30” as well as winning the coveted LVMH Prize for young designers. But don’t let the charm and bright outfits fool you, Alex has a heart of darkness. But first, he wants to bring Funani to his knees…” the statement concludes.

However, it seems that after eight months of playing the character, Masemola is ready to move on to find another character to bring to life.

On Monday, 15 May 2023, e.TV released the official statement confirming that the upcoming episode of House of Zwide will mark the exit of the current antagonist Alex Fudzai played by Warren Masemola.

The exit is a segway for the story to change the relationship dynamics between leads Vusi Kunene as Funani Zwide and Winnie Ntshaba as Faith Zwide. This is as Funani has been the “innocent” one between the two who could never conceive why he would ever commit murder.

While Faith was the wife who kept the dark secret of the murderous past from her husband. Now the dynamics are set to change as the synopsis of Masemola’s exit explains:

One night, while Nkosi and Faith are in the middle of a heated argument, Alex shows up with a gun to kill Funani. An almighty tussle ensues, and it ends with Nkosi having to shoot Alex to protect his father.

The Zwides are rocked by this and it’s Faith who thinks on her feet and manages to get rid of the body and clean up the crime scene. Suddenly Nkosi has a murder on his hands and needs the protection of the one person he hates the most.

In light of his imminent exit from House of Zwide, Warren has yet to reflect on his brief but seemingly impact time of the soapie. However, given that his exit has yet to officially happen, it is not a surprise that he has yet to take to social media to bid farewell to the character.
