Mlamli Mangcala was one of the famous faces on TV as he starred in the hit Mzansi Magic telenovela, The Queen. Mangcala portrayed the role of Captain Sthembiso Radebe, but it was not rosy for the star behind the scenes.

After airing his frustrations about working on the Ferguson Films production, Mangala got blackballed. If you may recall, Mangcala claimed that he was only paid R100 for his role, making netizens even more furious.

Light at the end of the tunnel

On his Instagram page, Mangcala shared pictures of him working at the hospital as a radiographer. The star mentioned the importance of using one's qualifications if all else fails.

As a locum radiographer, he can assist other students within the same field.

"When a business does not work, and you are blacklisted on TV. You wake up and dust your qualifications, then go to the hospital and locum. The most satisfying part is when you impart knowledge to students. An apple a day keeps the radiographer away."

How Ferguson Films responded to Mangcala's claims

At the time, Lauren Neil Nel, the spokesperson for the production house, said the Fergusons spent over R27 000 just for Mangcala.

The Fergusons distanced themselves from the R100 claims he brought with him. They also allegedly made a contract stating that Mangcala would be paid even if he never worked.
