The show's viewers have been using social media to ask the show when Mxolisi will be making his much-anticipated appearance. The show's spokesperson Nomfundo Zondi explained the mix up to Daily Sun.

Nomfundo explained that the show's teasers were written before the scenes were shot. She said Nay Map's busy schedule clashed with Uzalo's schedule and he ended up not coming to KZN to shoot his new scenes.

ZAlebs reports that Nomfundo said Mxolisi would've returned for only a few episodes.

"We had to make changes in the storyline. It's not like we took our viewers for a ride. Nay Maps was too busy. His busy schedule couldn't allow him to come for a shoot."
