Uzalo show lovers got the most disappointing news about their much loved actor, Simphiwe Majozi who was said to be leaving the show soon.

Rumour had it that Simphiwe, who portrays the character of Sbu on the popular SABC show Uzalo did not renew his contract as the show started shooting for season 7.

Rumours about him leaving the show were spread by him being scarce on the screen for sometime now.

Many assumed this was because he was leaving the show.


Speaking about the rumours, Sbu says he was alarmed by the number of people who hit him up on his phone asking about the issue.

Sbu further explained why he hasn’t been available on the show.

He said the show producers have been reserving much time for those leaving the show to dominate the storyline, hence, his absence.

Majozi said his Uzalo’s Sbu persona will not be leaving the show, but rather, having a radical change on how the character portrays itself on the show.

He has always been known as the comical one on the show.

But for the upcoming season 7 episodes, his character will be changed from being comical to gangster.
