Musa Ngema, a Generations star and fan favorite, was supposedly sacked from the SABC 1 soapie for being dramatic. According to sources, Ngema, who plays Mazwi Moroka on the show, was fired due to strained relationships with other cast members and crew members.
According to a reliable source, his problems began when he was urged to improve his pronunciation and cease stuttering when speaking. He was supposedly insulted and developed a terrible attitude.
“His character was unceremoniously written off apparently because he was not getting along with the cast and his speech was bad when it came to pronouncing words. When they tried showing him his weaknesses, he would be angry,” the source said.
Connie Ferguson and Rapulana Seiphemo will be welcomed back by Ngema’s departure. According to the source, they will make their first public appearance at Mazwi Moroka’s funeral.
According to reports, producers approached Moopi Mothibeli, who played Smanga Moroka, but he declined. “He gave them the middle finger and told them he was not interested,” reports state.
Generations said there was no bad blood between the production and Ngema, saying, “We would like to take this opportunity to address the situation and provide some clarity.
“As with any long-running television show, the decision to write a character out of the series is never an easy one.
“The reality is that in a world with so much content, soapies have to let go of some characters and introduce new ones to keep the show interesting and spring surprises on the audience.”
The statement from The Generations continued, “The writing department has worked hard to ensure that the departure of Musa Ngema is handled in a way that is true to the story and respectful to the fans.
“He has done a fantastic job of portraying the character, and we are grateful for his dedication and commitment to the role. Once again, we thank him for his contribution,” the statement read.
