Generations has hinted out on the possibility of Kenneth Mashaba returning back to the SABC 1 leading programme.
The soapie wrote: “Could the King of Goons be back?
“They all come and go but the King shall remain. All hail King Kenneth Mashaba! …Well he seems to think otherwise…”
Kenneth was last seen on our screens in April 2011 following six full years on Generations after he made a grand debut with the then trophy wife, Dineo Mashaba-Dikobe-Tlhaole-Dlomo.
At the time of Kenneth’s exit from the soapie, Generations Head writer Chris Blomkamp was quoted in the media as saying:
“Kenneth is such a well-loved character, it would be ‘suicide’ to get rid of him. So no coffins or shootings. The opportunity will always exist for him to return. What we can say is that Kenneth may finally get what’s long been coming to him.”
They all come and go but the King shall remain
Seputla, equally, had only good things to say about his stay on Generations.
“I have a really wonderful working relationship with Mr Mfundi Vundla, whom I must thank profusely for allowing me to mesmerise with my character. When I told them what I wanted to do it wasn’t one of those ‘we will see you in court’ situations,” Tonight reported on 24 March 2011.
Kenneth Mashaba’s charm to rescue a sinking boat?
Over the past few months, concerned have been raised in the media about the soapie’s deteriorating standard. Nambitha Mpumlwana is also set to return to the programme, the move that left critics speculating that she was approached to come to the soapie’s rescue.
