Scandal fans are absolutely shattered about the death of one of their favourite characters Romeo Medupe, who is played by Hungani Ndlovu. Romeo was killed off the show on 7 December 2020. His mother-in-law, Boniswa hired a hitman to end him once and for all.
Fans were not impressed at all with some even threatening to boycott the show. There were rumours about Hungani leaving the show a few months back.
Now it's official. Reports were saying that Hungani was fired because he had a diva attitude but e.tv rubbished these claims and said that he left at his own will.
Fans reacted to the news that their beloved Romeo was gone and took to social media to mourn:
@LovenessPearl said: "Romeo is Scandal , Scandal is Romeo. If Romeo is exiting am going to officially stop watching Scandal."
@NathanJay218 said:"No not at all. Romeo does not die. Pay him the salary he wants."
@King_Khanyie commented: "Romeo deserves a better exit than this one. This is totally a disrespect to his character and all the craft he gave us."
@Xo_MelodyN commented: "Same, I’m mad! He’s the one right thing about Scandal and they let him go like an extra? Where’s the respect?"
Rest in peace, Romeo.
