eTV Scandal! Exodus Continues – List of All the Actors that Left

Check out all the actors that left eTV Scandal!

Published

on

eTV Scandal

eTV’s Scandal! signalled it’s intent to move in a different direction with a new storyline by getting rid of some of the marquee actors and actresses on the show. The drama series shifted its focus from the many filler subplots to introduce a new family in town.

In retrospect, it seemed like the writers had hit a dead end after exhausting different plot lines for some of our faves. Case in point was the handling of Hungani Ndlovu’s exit from the soapie. His first disappearance suggested that we hadn’t seen the last of the actor until Romeo re-emerged out of nowhere…only to die thereafter.

Some of Ndlovu’s highlights include outsmarting the most cunning of adversaries in Kgomotso Christopher’s character, Yvonne ‘YV’ Langa and Neo Mokgethi.

The writers quickly filled the gap by shining the spotlight on Lusanda Mbane’s character, Boniswa Langa. This move gave the impression that she would be the new lead, as new cast members Mamba and Gorbachev were introduced to add more range and drama around her.

Lusanda’s reign was short lived, as she would soon make way for the Kubeka family after being shot dead by Grace Medupe. Boniswa’s exit would not be the last in the mass exodus that was to follow.

Zinzile eTV Scandal

It seems like we’ve seen the last of Mlungisi Ngema, played by Patrick Mofokeng on Scandal! The same fate that befell Romeo happened to him as well. Death by river!!!

His onscreen wife, Gcina Nkosi who reprises the role of Zinzile Ngema may also be moving on as a result. It is still yet to be confirmed, however, all evidence points towards that direction.

Quinton eTV Scandal!

Brighton Ngoma also bid farewell to his character Quinton Nyathi after 10 years on the show. His exit gave viewers a glimpse of what to expect from the Kubeka family. While a freak accident may have taken his life, it showed just how resourceful the family was at evading the law and getting away with murder.

It was not too long ago when we were celebrating his marriage to Thembeka Shezi (Masasa Mbangeni). Masasa returned to the soapie only to be brutally murdered by arch-nemesis, Mthunzi Mayisa a few months later.

Who’s Leaving eTV Scandal! Next?

It is rumoured that Lerumo Chabedi (Tshepo Masese) and his father Neo Mokgethi (Jerry Mofokeng wa Makhetha) will be killed off the show in the next few weeks. No doubt that the new family will have something to do with it. Lerumo has been investigating the death of Quinton that has led him to the trail of the Kubekas. It remains to be seen what happens next.

The remaining Langas may also be ushered out of the story based on current events. Xolile Langa, who is brought to life by Sivenathi Mabuya will exit the show and will be followed by Bathabile Mashigo (Grace Medupe). Seems like her final act was to kill Boniswa. After selling her shares at the Newtonian Hotel, she will disappear from the show.

Catch all of this and more on the latest episodes of Scandal! which air on e.tv from Mondays to Fridays at 19h30.

Thandeka Dawn King Makes her Return to DiepCity

Ma Shenge is back.

Published

on

Thandiwe’s absence on DiepCity had left a hollow gap during Dawn Thandeka King’s hiatus from the popular Mzansi Magic telenovela. But viewers will be delighted to learn that the actress has begun filming again to reprise her role as the feisty MaShenge.

The actress, who had to step back from shooting with the rest of the cast following an injury on set, has ended her three-month break from the show with a promise of a fired-up portrayal of her character on the show. “She’s gathered phenomenal life lessons that now bring her back wiser and stronger”, it says here.

DiepCity Thandeka Dawn King

On the show Thandeka portrays the stern ‘Thandiwe’, Nox’s mother.

“It has been a difficult journey, I am grateful that I was injured on duty, this makes me more determined to heal and go back to work”, said the actress in a press statement. “I love what I do, even when I got injured I was so into the scene, I never anticipated any danger. I am grateful to be back on set, I have missed performing so much.”

Dawn Thandeka King’s delivery on DiepCity has been key to the show’s success. She appears on the daily series as a stern, uncompromising mother who conducts her household with an authoritarian parenting style. A sole breadwinner, she works as cleaner who only gets paid according to her shifts.

DiepCity every weekday at 20:30 on Mzansi Magic, DStv channel 161.

A post shared by ZINHLE JIYANE (@djzinhle)


“I have exciting and UNEXPECTED news for you this evening,” captioned the video clip on Instagram, revealing the surprise pregnancy to her 3.8 million Instagram followers.

Known to be typically private about the intimate details of her life, news that Zinhle had been shopping a reality show to Showmax were met with disbelief from fans. She knows it, but wanted to do things differently for a change. “I’ve never wanted to do a reality TV show”, she expressed in a statement. “However this time around, I wanted my pregnancy to be different, and I wanted to enjoy it with those who I love closely but still have the opportunity to share the experience with my fans later.

“Thank you for celebrating”, DJ Zinhle wrote to her 3,2 Instagram followers.

“I’m super excited to share my experience now, and partnering with BET Africa has allowed me some control in my narrative. It gives everyone a closer look into who I am as a businesswoman, mom and public figure, which I think my fans are going to appreciate.”

The mother of one Kairo Forbes, 5, whom she shares with rapper AKA, is expecting a baby with Black Motion group member Bongani Mohosana.

“Thank you for your love and blessings. Bongani and I are so happy. God bless you all,” DJ Zinhle the glowing lady wrote in a tweet on Tuesday.
