- Many Isibaya fans see Nomzamo Mbatha as the darling of the show
- Despite her popularity, the actress has focused on making things happen in Hollywood
- The show has now decided to kill off her character and let Nomzamo pursue her acting career in the US in freedom
Isibaya actress Nomzamo Mbatha will be leaving the show for good. She's been doing amazing things in Hollywood and it's time for her to focus on that permanently.
Nomzamo's character in Isibaya, Thandeka, is seen by many fans of the show as the 'darling' and they'd hate to see her go.
But all good things must come to an end, even if we don't like it. This is truly a way for Nomzamo to grow even more and solidify herself on the international stage.
"As local entertainment channels, we are very proud of Nomzamo Mbatha’s international project and achievements to date."
Briefly.co.za learnt that Nomzamo asked to be released from Isibaya back in 2018, but the show didn't want to let her go - she's such a popular cast member.
It seems they've changed their minds and decided to let her go now. Thandeka will be killed off, so there's no real chance that Nomzamo will return. Although, sometimes anything is possible when comes to on-screen drama.
All that's left now for Nomzamo in SA are her ambassadorship deals and the charity work she's so passionate about.
