The show is one of the most watched soapie in South Africa. The Uzalo main characters earn between 25 thousand Rands to 60 thousand Rands per month. Call actors get atleast 1 thousand Rands per call.

Khathaza left the show and a lot of fans speculated that maybe he was fired. However Uzalo’s public relations officer said the character’s storyline had come to an end.

Rumours were flying on social media that Sibonile Ngubane aka Khathaza was coming back to the show. He even posted a video with his nemesis on the show Masoja Msiza and captioned it ‘we are not done yet’. Uzalo did not deny nor confirm the rumours.

Another burning question was about Thuthuka Mthembu’s real age. Thuthuka Mthembu plays the role of Nonka on the show. She is one of the youngest characters on the show. The actress’ real age is 22 years old.
