VIEWERS REACT TO HER ‘REPLACEMENT’

@ZandyNice: “The way I’m struggling with the “new” Ceasar on #SmokeAndMirrors. I just know that I’m going to suffer with this one too.”

@LebohangNgweny1: “Thank God I’ve stopped watching as soon as I heard the news. I struggle with character replacement so much. Till this day I haven’t watched season 3 of The Wife because they changed Mqhele. I was obsessed with that show.”

@Degratia09: “I stopped watching this show when Nomalanga grew a pregnancy belly overnight and the Dlaminis saw nothing strange with that. There and then, I knew we are not taken seriously as viewers. Instead, we are in for a very long storyline drag.”

@DeenickJ: “They should have canceled the show really, replacing an actor with another never works really.”
