Uzalo’s Detective Nyawo Loses Voice
Uzalo Detective Nyawo Actor Loses Voice, Halts Shooting Season 7 Scenes
Actor Cebolenkosi Mthembu has apparently lost his voice, in what is turning out to be a serious condition.
Cebolenkosi Mthembu is well known for his role on Uzalo as police Captain Nyawo, who was demoted to detective Nyawo after his incompetency.
The loss of his voice has caused him to halt shooting for Uzalo, and he also had to lose out on his radio host slot on Vibe FM.
Cebolenkosi Mthembu, who is multi talented, also reportedly works at Eskom, as a technician inspector and it’s unclear if he still holds that job as well.
The actor told Daily Sun that he lost his voice at the beginning of February after suffering from Covid-19
“I was diagnosed with Covid-19 at the beginning of this year. My father was too. He died on 3 January. After my self-isolation, I was cleared of Covid, so I went back to work. But my voice just disappeared this month. I went back to consult a doctor, but he gave me something for Covid. I have tried drinking honey, Vitamin C supplements, but nothing is working.
At the community radio presenters like myself hope big radio stations would hire them for their new changes. But honestly, which radio stations could hire someone who is voiceless. I’m scared; I don’t know what to do now. My voice is my everything. Now I have lost it I feel like I’m losing everything.”
As a result Mthembu’s voice loss, is affecting his Uzalo season 7 scenes, which will start airing on the 8th of March.
Doctors have discussed the drastic post Covid-19 symptoms and complications, some patients have been facing, which include breathing problems, diminished sense of smell, in some cases, seizures and damage to vocal chords, leading to voice loss.
