Generations Producers Turns Their Back On Gaddafi As He Asks For His Job Back
Actor, Vuyo Dabula who is well known by his role as Kumkani ‘Gaddafi’ Phakade on Generations has changed his mind about leaving the soapie but the writers have already written him out.
Recently, Gaddafi made headlines after he was asked by the producers to choose between Generations The Legacy and the now-canceled show; Queen Sono 2 and he chose the latter.
When Netflix confirmed that Queen Sono 2 wouldn’t be renewed Dabula apparently changed his mind about leaving Generations The Legacy.
A source on Generations said:
“He was about to shoot season 2 of Queen Sono, but following the announcement that the show wouldn’t be renewed, he suddenly had a change of heart.
Vuyo Dabula has now backtracked on his request to exit the show but producers wouldn’t give him the floor.
Producers found it challenging to write him out of the exit when he officially resigned.
A source on the show revealed:
“It was a nightmare having to scramble an exit story for him because he’s one of the principal cast members. Planning his exit scenes wasn’t easy because he’d been written into season 7, which started last month.”
Sources on the show also claim that producers are still going ahead with his exit and have not changed their minds.
Another source said:
“As far as I’m aware, he’s still leaving the show. Everything has been concluded for his exit, so there’s no turning back.”
Vuyo Dabula joined Generations The Legacy after the previous 16 cast members were fired from Generations by the show’s creator; Mfundi Vundla. His career took off when he joined the show.
Nandipha Pantsi who is the show’s publicity manager stated:
“I can confirm that Vuyo Dabula asked to be released from his contract. However, I don’t know anything about the rumours. “
When Vuyo was apparently contacted about his exit from the show he said:
“I’m not leaving the show.”
