Masoja Msiza is alive, well and kicking. The star has taken to social media to dismiss the rumours that he has passed away. Masoja, who plays the role of Nkunzi Mhlongo on Uzalo, was reacting to a fake online news report about his demise.
Masoja shared a video on Twitter and Instagram where he addressed his fans following the disturbing fake report. The veteran actor said the rumours are not true. He captioned the post:
"The rumours are not true, I am very much alive."
On the actual video, Masoja who portrays the role of a ruthless gangster on the popular SABC1 soapie, said:
"I'm alive, well and kicking. It's through the mercy of God. I'm aware of the malicious rumours spreading like wildfire. It's the work of the envious, the haters and the jealous. Show them the video, I'm alive and well."
The Voice's worried fans were happy that their fave is still alive. Tweep @MpiloMoyo5 commented:
"Thanks my friend, I was so devastated and wondering why? Why? Why? People are so heartless and have no conscience. Take care and live even a long, long life."
"I was even beginning to imagine Uzalo without Masoja, these fake news must stop for real. Some people must be locked up in jail."
Uzalo also slammed the rumours.
"Masoja Msiza @MasojaMsiza_ZA is very much alive and well."
