The teaser had fans of the SABC1 telenovela excited at the likelihood of seeing their favorite Kwa-Mashu thug on their screen once more , but now we are within the month of May and still no Mxolisi.

It’s been seven years since the hit soapie debuted and therefore the producers wanted to shake things up for his or her 7th season by bringing back the show’s much-loved characters including Mastermind, played by TK Dlamini; GC, played by Khaya Dladla and Thobile, played by Nokuthula Mabika. This, consistent with reports, was a technique by the soapie’s producers to extend viewership after a warning from the channel following a big drop when the year began.

The enigmatic duo comprised of Mxolisi and Mastermind was set to reunite once more to tug off what promises to be the most important heist Kwa-Mashu has ever seen. However, only Mastermind returned, and just for three episodes, but there was no sight of Mxolisi.

According to the show’s spokesperson Nomfundo Zondi, the teasers were written before the scenes were shot and therefore the actor’s busy schedule clashed with theirs. She further explained that, like Mastermind, Mxolisi would’ve returned for less than a couple of episodes.

“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 within the storyline. it isn’t 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,” Nomfundo told Daily Sun.

She added that things was an equivalent with Kay Sibiya who played the character of Ayanda on Uzalo. thanks to his current role on Generations: The Legacy, the actor couldn’t return to shoot with the KZN-based soapie.

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


Viewers of the show were already unhappy with the news of MaNgcobo’s departure, a task played by actress Dawn Thandeka King.

The actress shared a tear-jearking video on her Instagram of her last scene on Uzalo. within the video, an emotional MaNgcobo is surrounded by her troops as she gives a speech and thanks them one last time before deed to Mozambiqueto hide.

“And so today my journey on @uzalo_sabc1 involves an end
Thank you for the love you’ve got all shown to MaNgcobo, ningadinwa nangomuso.
Thank you @stainedglasstv1 for the chance , I even have you to thank for the break through…

“Closing yet one more chapter so as to start again….” she wrote.

Dawn Thandeka King joined Mzansi Magic’s new telenovela Diep City which replaced Isibaya.
