Weeks ago, former Muvhango actor Nkululeko “Nkuli” Tshirumbula was revealed as the new addition to Generations: The Legacy cast.
Just when fans were warming up to watching their favourite Strictly Come Dancing star on the longest-running soapie in South Africa, Tshirumbula was allegedly fired before he even made his first appearance.
Nkuli, who plays the role of Vuyo, has allegedly joined the long list of actors who have been shown the door at the SABC1 soapie. He started shooting in Generations: The Legacy in September but found himself leaving before he has even made a name for himself.
According to Sunday Sun, Nkuli was fired from the soapie together with Mutodi Neshehe (Zola) and and Vuyo Dabula (Gaddaffi).
“They were fired for poor acting. It’s sad for Nkuli who recently just joined the soapie and is already losing his job,” said the source.
The source said the latest development prompted SABC bosses to question the executive producer of the soapie.
Said the mole: “The bosses at SABC are no longer happy with the way actors are being fired at Generations: The Legacy.”
