Loyiso MacDonald is set to leave The Queen soon. The talented actor plays the role of Kagiso Khoza in the Mzansi Magic telenovela.
Entertainment commentator Phil Mpela's The Tea reported recently that Loyiso decided to exit the show after spending five years portraying the character of Kagiso aka Sgaqagaqa.
Besides The Queen, Loyiso has acted in big TV productions such as Isidingo!. His fans shared that they are sure that he will slay any role that he bags next. Phil's the Tea reported on Twitter:
"The dynamic within the Khoza house will now be strange since Goodness, played by Zenande Mfenyane is back on the show and her character is tied to Kagiso."
Loyiso did not dispute the news of his exit when a fan praised him for slaying his role after Mpela tweeted the sad news. Loyiso told the fan.
"Thank you so much!"
The viewers of the telenovela took to Mpela's comment section to share their thoughts on Loyiso's surprise exit. Check out some of their reactions below:
"Somehow I think it was a great career move. He is such a great actor, the programme was once great, but it honestly lost its spark. We hope to see him on a great telenovela with a great storyline, doing what he does best. May he rise to greater heights."
"This might be a good move for him. I am keen to see what project he will take on next. If The Queen will do a re-cast, I feel sorry for whoever will take on the role of Kagiso after Loyiso because Loyiso did justice to that role."
"The #TheQueenMzansi as a whole nje is played out... There was no need for a 5th season... Loyiso is jumping the ship before it sinks."
"I won't be surprised if he joins The Estate."
"I guess there’s no need for me to continue watching The Queen, cos he honestly was the only reason I watched."
