Sunday World reported that the decision to fire SK Khoza came as a direct instruction from Multichoice. The company dismissed Khoza on account of his domestic abuse allegations from his ex-fiancée Ayanda Hlongwane.

SK Khoza has been fired from The Queen with immediate effect over wife Ayanda Hlongwane's abuse allegations
Briefly News reported that it had been announced that Mzansi Magic's The Queen will be one cast member lighter. SK Khoza has been cut from the show due to some unsavoury behaviour off-screen. Apparently, he has been charged with assault by his wife and the show won't stand to be associated with abuse allegations.
News24 reported that SK's fiancée Ayanda Hlongwane filed a police report accusing the actor of being a wife-beater. This came after Khoza admitted to being verbally abusive and taking out his frustrations on Ayanda.
The producers of The Queen are known to have a no-nonsense policy with their stars and SK was no exception. ZAlebs reports that the actor was arrested on a count of domestic violence and the couple has since erased each other from their respective social media accounts.
