Ndlovu took to Facebook to warn the public.
Please be warned, the seems to be people going around claiming that there will be Uzalo auditions in September, this is not true. Someone sent me a text that they received and I am copying it here so that people should not fall for the scam. We do not charge money for auditions and the only person authorized to call or organize auditions is Zodwa Zuma and her e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org No one else is authorized to call auditions.
BELOW IS A COPY OF THE TEXT, DO NOT FALL FOR IT, IF YOU GET IT KNOW THAT IT IS A SCAM! BE WARNED!
