South African actress, singer and media personality, Letoya Makhene, will be leaving Mzansi soap, Generations: The Legacy. She handed in her resignation letter two months ago.
While there are rumours that she was prompted to bow out due to conflicts of interest at the workplace, there were other reports that the actress could have left due to her wanting to follow another career path.
According to ZAlebs, Sunday Sun reported that various sources who came into the publication's offices claim, "Letoya is gatvol of being micromanaged and treated as an amateur or newcomer. So she decided to quit."
It is believed there had been many conflicts between actors and management. Other sources have claimed that Letoya is shooting her exit scenes and soon her much-loved character, Tshidi, will be missed on the soapie.
When Sunday Sun contacted Letoya for comment, she was unable to deny or confirm her leaving the show.
However, executive producer, Mfundi Vundla, did confirm the reports. He said:
"She left out of her own will because she wants to pursue her music career. We didn't fight. She said she might come back in the future."
Being an all-round entertainer, Mzansi can rest assured that it won't be long before Letoya spreads her magic on other art platforms.
Three days ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Letoya Makhene shared a post which gave Mzansi’s social media users a closer look at a relatively private part of her life: her calling as a sangoma.
Letoya rose to fame through recognition for her role in popular South African soapies, Isidingo and Generations, and took time off in 2003 in order to go to an initiation school for traditional healers.
