Busiswa joins 'disappointed' fans after Moshidi Motshegwa exits The River
As Mzansi comes to terms with news that Moshidi Motshegwa's leaving hit drama series The River, singer Busiswa has added her name to the list of disappointed fans.
Moshidi recently told 702's Azania Mosaka that she had left the show after allegedly being told there was no longer a storyline for her character Malefu.
The news sent shockwaves across the industry and even left Busiswa shooketh.
The singer told fans on Twitter that she was stunned by the news.
In the 702 interview Moshidi claimed she was told on the day she was shooting that her character's story was over.
"They said they don't have a story for Malefu. It's as simple as that. That is what the producers have said. I am repeating what the producers said... I just left. I finished my job on that day and they told me they don't have a story."
Busiswa was angered by this and claimed that in no other industry would such a situation happen.
Malefu, a devout but firm woman who would kill for her family became a total hit with viewers and led to a frenzy on social media.
Aren’t we all 😪I am even thinking of canceling my showmax subscription because I got hooked because of the river and one of the biggest reasons I watched the river was Malefu— Lufuno Jackie muleya (@Jackiemuleya) February 12, 2019
It’s a loss to the river not Moshidi, she will soon be back to our screen, boom production here is an opportunity to have a quality on your line up. As you are the best production house in mzanzi.— Samuel (@samieazy) February 9, 2019
Moshidi won’t be on The River anymore because apparently they don’t have a storyline for Malefu. That’s bullshit. I’ve seen the writer create a storyline for instagram models so there’s no way. Unless they can’t afford to pay her 🤷🏾♂️— lushian (@Lushovah) February 9, 2019
The River played themselves by cutting off moshidi from season 2 her character “ malefu” is so relatable to many viewers even my grandmother said malefu reminds her of her late mother with her strict and humorous ways as a viewer I’m not Happy about this decision. 💔 https://t.co/MtLR4FOWtC— FIELA SE KIND 🔌 (@rantshabi1) February 8, 2019
