Actress Samkelo Ndlovu is leaving Rhythm City
Actress Samkelo Ndlovu took to social media to announce her departure from e.tv soapie, Rhythm City after seven years with the show. Samkelo plays a character by the name of Lerato, who is Fats’s cousin.
In the statement, Samkelo shared that she attempted to leave the soapie a year ago. She said in part; “A year ago I attempted to leave Rhythm City and during talks with producers, after even trying a 6 month on 6 months off solution, another co-star who was pivotal as an antagonist in the world of the story confirmed his departure. I was then asked to stay on for one more year, as the show could not lose two villains at once. So I stayed another year.”
Good morning family,
Without dragging this out – I’d like to formally announce my departure from Rhythm City drama. I have stated the reasons why I am explaining this in the statement below.
Thanks to all the Rhythm City and Samkelo Ndlovu fans who watch religiously ❤️ pic.twitter.com/ELH2AsPvUE
