The production company in question Rhythm World Productions, is said to have done that without at the last hour and no explanation was given to the Nomalanga hitmaker.

The publication spoke to a production source who shared that Zuluboy lived on set for a week as he was sent to work but didn’t end up working.

The insider added, “He wasted a good five days, reading scripts and practicing and this was later changed and he was not given the role. He was made to believe he had the part and signed a contract, only to find out that Nkanyiso was given the part.”

The source continued to spill to the publication that efforts by the production to counterpart were made but they were not to the actor’s satisfaction as he decided to take the legal route.

A document from the actor’s lawyers which the publication has seen detail that the next step to be taken on the matter was to approach the Arbitration Foundation of South Africa.
