Popular character Mlungisi, played by Uzalo star Nkanyiso Mchunu who left Umkhokha: The Curse on Thursday, 21 September is being praised by his on-screen mother Mamzobe.
MAMZOBE BIDS FAREWELL TO MLUNGISI
The fan-favourite Umkhokha: The Curse actress Deli Malinga who plays the villainous role of Mamzobe took to her Instagram account on Monday, 25 September to bid farewell to the actor who played Mlungisi.
Malinga revealed on her post that she loves Mchunu’s acting and told him he’s one of the best in the country and enjoyed their scenes.
“I still remember our conversation when arriving on Umkhokha set for your first scenes with me (kuhlangana imihlathi eyazanayo). Amongst everything we spoke about, I recall you saying. ‘Ma, I know you playing my mom on-screen for the second time. I know it’s gonna be for a short while but asivule umgodi, meaning let’s do our thing unapologetically’”.
“Something that will make them remember us even when we’re gone. Let’s separate water from paraffin. I love your acting baby boy, you’re one of the best in the country.
“I enjoyed our scenes so much and watching them on TV would always be like, ‘we did that, and that too’ 😂.”
Malinga ended her post by saluting Mchunu as he makes acting look easy and he’s a natural. She also thanked him for being a wonderful on-screen and off-screen son and added that she’ll always love him.

‘UMKHOKHA: THE CURSE’: ACTOR EXITS
Mchunu’s character Mkhululi also known as Mlungisi ended his life by jumping off a building after partying with his frenemy Sibusiso and brothers Khulekani and Siphamandla.
Mkhululi is the third Mzobe family member to end his life after Mamzobe’s first-born daughter Xolile and her father, Baba MZobe.
Mamzobe is the cause of the curse in the family as she never lashed Bab’ Mzobe and Xolile’s bodies when they also committed suicide.
Mlungisi also died because he didn’t listen to his father, Mvelase’s warning, who revealed that he should step down and let his brother Sphamandla (Nay Maps) lead the church.
The first season also revealed that Mamzobe will lose all her children as she previously stole her father’s ancestral bag.
DSTV has confirmed that Mchunu, who exited the faith-based telenovela has joined Mzansi Magic’s upcoming telenovela My Brother’s Keeper.
