 Samkelo Ndlovu tried to leave Rhythm City in 2019

Samkelo Ndlovu made headlines when she announced that she is leaving the hit soapie Rhythm City! After seven years her character Lerato was a fan favourite.

She has now opened up about how she tried to leave the show a year earlier. She released a statement explaining the issue.

“The last seven years I have spent at a home that I found a favourable environment to harness and perfect my craft amongst thespians who share the same sentiments. I have enjoyed carrying Lerato with me and telling her story.” 

Samkelo discussed her leaving with the producers but was asked to stay for another year.

“A year ago I attempted to leave Rhythm City and during talks with producers, after even trying a six months on six months off solution, another co-star who was pivotal as an antagonist in the world of the story confirmed his imminent departure. I was then asked to stay for one more year, as the show could not lose two villains at once.”
