According to ZiMoja, the rapper/ actor was slated for a lead role on the popular soapie, having signed a contract and rehearsed for days on end - only for things to change at the eleventh hour.

The role was later handed to Nkanyiso Mchunu. Zuluboy is said to have taken the matter to the Arbitration Foundation of South Africa, feeling disrespected and undermined.

This wouldn't be the first time a creative took Rhythm World Productions to court. Briefly News reported Zithulele Khwela's legal battle against the production, which later ended in his favour.
