Despite being one of the most popular actresses in Mzansi and playing a character that has kept fans glued to their seats for weeks, Moshidi Motshegwa has confirmed that she has left drama series The River.
Moshidi plays the role of Malefu on the show, a devout but firm woman who would kill for her family. It is a character that many can relate too and has made her a firm fan favourite.
While the show has entered it’s second season, Moshidi told 702’s Azania Mosaka that she was no longer on the cast list.
The star revealed she had left the production after apparently being told there was no longer a story for her character.
“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.”
Moshidi joined the series in January last year, making a much-anticipated return to local screens and has no regrets being a part of the cast.
“For me, the most important thing is that I came back, I did the work and I did it at the level I wanted. I have no regrets about the work I have done.”
During an interview on Real Talk with Anele last year Moshidi explained that she didn’t just jump at every opportunity during her break from the spotlight because she often felt like she didn’t fit in with the lifestyle of the industry.
“It’s complicated, this industry. I don’t fit into the scene. I remember I was working on Channel O and Channel O was always having parties. I remember standing there and going, ‘You just don’t belong here. This is not you. Go home’. I got into my car and went home and I’ve been home since,” she said.
CHEATING SCANDAL!!! Akhona responds to Scoop Makhathini’s Twitter rant!
This is the thing about being betrayed by the one that you love dearly, you almost want to tell the whole world about that person’s not so good deeds. Such was the case with one of Mzansi’s most revered hip hop commentator and all round entertainer, Siyabonga Scoop Ngwekazi, who allegedly took to his Twitter page last night and vented about his girlfriend, Akhona Carpede – accusing her of cheating.
Twitter was lit after Scoop dragged Akhona as he posted a series of tweets expressing just how hurt he was by her actions. In one of the posted, he even included a photo of Akhona and the alleged guy that was regarded as a”Best friend” by her.
However, a few moments later Scoop then stated that his Twitter account was actually hacked, therefore his rant about his girlfriend is false. This move from Scoop left many Tweeps wondering if his account was truly hacked or there’s actually more to the story than meets the eye?
Well, earlier yesterday Akhona posted what seemed like a subtle jab surrounding her and Scoop currently. The general tone of her tweet have left many convinced that there was no hacking of accounts on Scoop’s end, as he had maintained after the frenzy last night.
Taking to Twitter, the following was posted by Akhona.
Be still Madlomo. No clapback or retort to your detractors is worth it. Be content to play the game that is being a strong, independent black women. Those that love me, I love you. Those that loathe me, I love you too.❤️ #Akhona pic.twitter.com/CL49VQxRg1

It’s interesting how she mentioned the word “loath” in this tweet as that’s exactly what was tweeted by Scoop’s alleged hacker.
