Lesley Musina who’s best known for his role as Ndalamo Mukwevho is reportedly leaving SABC2 popular soapie Muvhango.
The 36-year-old actor’s departure is after his contract which was not renewed and the role was written off. He would appear on the soapie for the last time in May.
“I’ve been with Muvhango for three years now, as much as my journey has come to an end, it’ll always be home to me,” Lesley said adding that “Soapies give a false sense of comfort and my brand has grown so much that I feel I need to explore other parts of the entertainment industry,” Lesley explained to Drum Magazine.
Muvhango’s publicity Amanda Ngudle added in a statement, “It’s not a rumour. Yes actor Lesley Musina’s contract has not been renewed for the current season. Our writers have not been able to craft a big story for him and because his is such a prominent character, it would have been shameful to just let him float through the season without a gripping storyline.”
Lesley has other project, fans can catch him on investigative reality show Speak Out every Thursday @ 9:30pm on SABC2.
