Generations Star Musa Ngema Reportedly Fired for Bad Attitude and Pronunciation
Musa Ngema, a fan favourite and star of the SABC 1 soapie Generations, has reportedly been sacked due to strained relationships with cast and crew members, as well as his bad attitude and pronunciation. Ngema played the character Mazwi Moroka on the show, which has been a long-standing favourite among South African viewers.
Problems with Pronunciation and Bad Attitude
According to a reliable source, Ngema’s problems began when he was urged to improve his pronunciation and cease stuttering when speaking. He allegedly took offence to this and developed a bad attitude towards the cast and crew members. “When they tried showing him his weaknesses, he would be angry,” the source said.
Musa Ngema Fired and Character Written Off
Ngema’s character, Mazwi Moroka, was reportedly written off the show due to his strained relationships and issues with pronunciation. Connie Ferguson and Rapulana Seiphemo are said to be returning to the show, and will make their first public appearance at Mazwi Moroka’s funeral. According to reports, Moopi Mothibeli, who played Smanga Moroka, was approached to replace Ngema, but he declined.
No Bad Blood between Musa and Generations
Generations has denied any bad blood between the production and Ngema, stating that the decision to write his character out of the series was a difficult one that is necessary in a long-running television show. “The reality is that in a world with so much content, soapies have to let go of some characters and introduce new ones to keep the show interesting and spring surprises on the audience,” the production team said.
Generations has been a popular soapie in South Africa for many years, with a loyal following of fans. While Ngema’s departure may come as a surprise to some viewers, the show will undoubtedly continue to captivate audiences with new storylines and characters.
