Vuyo Dabula, who became a fan favourite after joining ‘Generations: The Legacy’ in December, is on his way out.
Dabula joins Denise Zimba (Mary) and Asanda Foji (Simphiwe), who were axed last month.
Though ‘Generations: The Legacy’ has said Dabula left of his own accord, its publicity manager, Gaaratwe Mokheti, alluded to several actors’ contracts not being renewed.
“We’re in contract negotiations. At this time of year contracts are reviewed and, depending on the story, certain actors stay and others go,” Mokheti said.
She added that the drama was focused on keeping viewers gripped by changing its storyline.
“Our biggest loyalty is in advancing the story and keeping our viewers entertained,” she said.
Dabula got his first major role as Gadaffi. He has had minor ones in Yizo Yizo and Isidingo.
Although Generations: The Legacy seems to be undergoing a cast revamp, with about 6 million viewers it is South Africa’s most-watched soapie.
