According to City Press, Ngema filed the lawsuit in the Johannesburg High Court last week, accusing Moropa of damaging his name and jeopardising his income. According to SABC, Ngema resigned from his role as a star in the television series Family Secrets this week.
Fans were not happy with Ngema's role continuing as normal and called for the actor to be "cancelled". According to entertainment blogger Phil Mphela, Ngema has reportedly lodged a R12.5 million defamation claim.
