Popular actor Loyiso MacDonald has surprised some of his fans on Twitter by declaring that he is an atheist.
Loyiso, who stars as Kagiso Khoza on Mzansi Magic's The Queen, made the revelation during a debate on the infamous Omotoso trial on Twitter.

Nevertheless, the actor got some support from some of his fans.
