- Generations former character Choppa has been struggling to find a new gig after being chopped
- He has been preparing for a role in a theatre production by shadowing sangomas
- Mandla is just happy to be acting and has let the past go in-order to focus on his future
Mandla Gaduka hit a slump after he was booted from Generations. He has been battling to find work and we have not seen him on our screens in quiet awhile.
The actor did appear on e.tv's Broken Vows recently. He stated that it seems like production companies just don’t have any money.
Briefly.co.za learnt that he recently revealed that he has been going for a lot of auditions, but he hasn’t seemed to make the cut. However, he is currently preparing for a theatre gig that he bagged.
The production is based around the collision of African tradition and religion. Being an African man himself, Mandla has found the role quiet fitting.
Mandla has had to prepare a bit for this role as it goes into deep detail on the traditional African healing side of things. He has been shadowing sangomas and people who are in trading after receiving the calling.
Diketso is the name of the production. The main character is a girl who refuses to accept the calling of her ancestors to follow in their path and become a traditional healer. In spite of her disbelief, she is thrown with many challenges, including the loss of her son.
As there are many negative opinions on traditional African ‘magic’, Mandla says that there has been a lot of negative opinions given on the production.
Mandla is just happy to be acting. He says that as long as he is doing what he loves, nothing else matters.
The bitter taste of getting fired has passed and Mandla is now focusing on his future rather than letting the past control him.
