“After much consideration and discussion with my acting agent, management team, and production, it has become apparent that my involvement in a new upcoming television series will conflict with the shooting schedule for Tropika Island of Treasure.”

She concludes her statement by wishing the production of Tropika Island of Treasure season 11 a success. She also thanks her supporters for their unwavering support and understanding.


@regodzumba: “Her moves in the industry never make sense, she’s ruining her brand.”

@KholofeloMilli2: “She’s definitely going to quit with this acting gig.”

@TshegoMohumotsi: “Khosi Twala would fill the spot so perfectly.”

@Gizelle021696: “And she’s probably dropping her Tropika gig for a role that will disappear in two episodes.”

@Royalkamza: “@MyTropika should cast @__sinaye or @MofokengZintle. It would be nice and seeing them in different lite will be so good.”


The former Tropika of Islands of Treasure contestant, Omuhle Gela dumped Uzalo in 2022 where she played Nomaswazi Magwaza.

Gela confirmed her departure in a since-deleted Instagram post that she’s decided to leave Uzalo with immediate effect as the calculating Nomaswazi Magwaza.

“I’ve unfortunately made the decision to leave the show with immediate effect, everything said on this article is 100% true and I have nothing further to add or dispute.”

A source from Uzalo informed Zimoja that the actress decided not to show up for a shoot over the terms of her contract being changed. This was after she moved from Johannesburg to KwaZulu-Natal for the popular show.

The actress and reality TV star joined season eight of the SABC1 soapie to play the daughter of Njinji Magwaza (played by former Isibaya actress Thembi Nyandeni).
