Uzalo producers are currently on plans not to renew the contracts of 3 main actors of their soapie. The 3 are not going to be part of the season three of Uzalo according to sources within the production crew.
The 3 top actors faxing exit at the soapie are Naymaps Maphalala (Mxolisi), Ntokozo Dlamini (Mastermind), and Thandeka Dawn King (Lindiwe). There are reasons behind the sacking of the three main actors of the soapie.
Naymaps is facing the chop because of his bad attitude. The production crew feels that he thinks is the reason the soapie is number one in terms of viewership in the country. He is big headed according to the crew. They also claim he is always late for shooting and always has childish excuses for his lateness.
Thandeka will be chopped because of her missing out on shooting because of her music career. She has missed a lot of shooting according to the crew. She is always asking for days off because of her music career. The producers think it is time she be given enough time for her much important music career.
The reason for Ntokozo Dlamini (Mastermind)’s chopping is because the producers are phasing out his character as it will not be important in the future. He will not be replaced as it is the end for his role on Uzalo.
Naymaps and Thandeka will be replaced after the crew held auditions for season 3 in Johannesburg. The rest of the crew were shaken by the news that top actors are facing an exit. They believe everyone should work hard to earn themselves a role in the new season. All 3 of them refused to comment to our sources when contacted for clarity.
