Why We Will Miss Gaddafi And Jerah On Generations
The humour and personality Jerah brought to Generations The Legacy accompanied by Gaddafi’s charm which breathed life into scripts will be missed for ages if perfect suitors are not found to fill this huge gap left behind by the duo.
Women don’t generally like it when men call them ‘Sweetheart or Dear’ but Gaddafi was an exception. There was something about the way he called Tshidi, Sphe, or Zitha ‘sweetheart’ that melted a woman. Even if Vuyo Dabula the actor, called you ‘sweetheart’ at the mall, on your lousiest day, a woman would still feel the tinkles in her toes.
Dabula who is leaving Generations The Legacy for Netflix’s Queen Sono 2 is talented as well. He made veteran actors like Rapulana Seiphemo look good. Because it was only when Rapulana left his Generations The Legacy role of Tau Mogale that we noticed how ‘not-so-good’ of an actor he actually is. Dabula unlike Rapulana doesn’t need a henchman/wingman to make his character stand out from the rest; he’s great in a team and spectacular solo.
The actor who has been labeled a ‘diva’ for snubbing his Mpumalanga lookalike is similar to his Generations character and we don’t blame him.
When he resigned from Generations The Legacy, the producers of the show apparently tried to renegotiate his contract so that he won’t leave the show but Dabula had already made up his mind.
The show’s viewership ratings have dropped drastically as well as Skeem Saam’s and Uzalo’s for October due to uncreative storylines and loss of actors. The soapie officially fired Zoe Mthiyane a few weeks ago after she arrived at work tipsy several times. The soapie also lost two of its leading characters; Smanga Moroka and Tau Mogale who have joined Mzansi’s number one telenovela; The Queen.
However, sources say the show’s producers have managed to get Rapulana back on the show as he’ll be a call actor from season 7, which began two days ago.
