Vuyo Dabula refused to sign
on the dotted line but Rapulana Seiphemo has.
TVSA can confirm that the Generations stalwart has renewed his contract with the soapie amidst rumours that he was the next actor to make a speedy exit. The rumour was reported at the weekend
and today Rapulana signed a new contract with the show. (Someone show us his pay cheque!)
The show has also confirmed that Vusi Kunene will definitely return as Jack Mabaso but the details of his return remain sketchy, particularly in relation to his exclusivity. According to Mzansi Magic, he's very much still a part of isiBaya so there isn't confirmation on how both shows will handle his double villain status.
This comment from Mzansi Magic:
Mzansi Magic wishes to advise that, as with all popular and successful actors of his calibre, Vusi Kunene can be expected to explore multiple options in the thriving South African film and TV industry. However he currently remains very much part of the prime-time Isibaya where he plays the role of Bhekifa Ngubane.
Could Vusi be waiting to finalise the details with Generations before giving his notice? Will he? Should he?
And how will Gen explain the return of Jack? Rapulana's signature means that his arch nemesis Tau will still be on the scene so it's highly likely that he'll spark the Jack's Back moment.
