Fundiswa Zwane has reportedly been fired from Imbewu: The Seed. The surprise exit comes after the star's management allegedly asked requested a pay increase for her. Rumours are that the actress will be replaced by Brenda Mhlongo.
According to Isolezwe, Brenda only found out about her dismissal when she was told by others. The publication reports that she was very surprised. Brenda has already started filming and will be appearing on screens soon. Social media users have expressed their shock over the sudden news. Twitter user LueTheFiddler said:
"Noooo. That's one character that can not be replaced, she was so natural."
"Wow! You ask for a raise and you get fired? Surely that's illegal unless there's a lot more to the story."
"Oh noo, she was excellent as Donsi man!"
"She is a talented actress Fundiswa Zwane. I have notice that she is listed as a supporting actress while Shongololo is lead. She deserves an increase this lady, she gives her all and it shows. I just hope this is not true."
"The president and Minister of Arts and Culture need to sign and promulgate that bill. Artists are being marginalised."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that it took just one word to change the life of Kaylin Soobramanian. "Sanibonani," he said, greeting a room full of top television industry faces, including famed casting director Duma Ndlovu, before he swept them off their feet with his impressive ability to speak isiZulu at the auditions for Imbewu, The Seed.
