Has Muvhango‘s top brass Chief, Azwindini Mukwevho, reached his final journey with the soap opera- and will his biggest opponent and self-proclaimed rightful heir of the chieftaincy, the Boom! Boom! factor master KK Mulaudzi, also follow suit, asks Tilo ngwana Rashaka.
In August this year, the leading Sunday tabloid newspaper reported that Gabriel Temudzani, playing the role of polygamous Chief and leader of the Mukwevho kraal and Macdonald Ndou playing fashionista KK are likely to be cut off the Muvhango’s pay roll list citing the two have become big headed, arriving late for shootings and unprepared.
The “terrible twins“, as they have been branded, have allegedly caused a stir on set, paving their way to fall out of the producers’ favour and as a result, measures are in place to put the two on a “precautionary break.”
But today, according to Muvhango’s November teasers, “Pfuluwani, Susan and Tshianeo say a tearful goodbye to Azwindini” on Thursday 14. Following Azwindini’s departure, shrewd Vele will come creeping back into the royal family while Gizara nominates himself a regent in the absence of Azwindini.
It was reported that Mulalo, who was once greeted as “the greatest pig of Lounde” will take over the chieftaincy after Azwindini and auditions have been held to cast a second wife for him.
Could this be proving correct such allegations? KK, one of the “terrible twins” duo brigade is not at the helm of Muvhango anymore. His company, Masase, went bankrupt and was bought by MC’s daunting CEO, Busani, played by Siyabonga Twala, whose future with the soapie is also uncertain after rumours started circulating that his three month contract has expired and will likely not to be renewed, instead the actor has signed a contract with growing e-tv Rhythm City.
On Sunday 08 September, Muvhango‘s spin doctor, Kgalema Eugene Mametse, was quoted in the newspaper confirming that Millicent Mothiba has been relegated to a mere call in actor, only called to report to work when needed.
“She’s not the only one. Other actors will also follow suit. But as for her leaving the soapie, that can’t be true,” Mametse was quoting as saying.
Other actors will also follow suit: Is Azwindini who’s been with the soapie for 13 years following suit? And will KK who was written off and brought back into the soapie due to massive public outcry also join him? Is this the begin of the said “precautionary break?” Could this be the end of the “terrible twins?”
Let’s wait to see how things will unfold. Muvhango airs every Monday-Thursday at 21:00 only on SABC 2.
