After four successful years on Isibaya, Celest Ntuli will officially be exiting the show soon.

In an interview with Glen Lewis and Nina Hastie in the Expensive Breakfast Show on Touch HD Celest confirmed that she would soon be leaving the popular Mzansi Magic drama series.

"Yes shame, it is coming to an end a bit soon, and I'm going back to comedy, I'll be doing comedy full time now."

Celeste went on to explain that her being on the show has made her realise how passionate and how personally people take Isibaya from the cast members to the viewers.

"People are passionate about the show, I had to defend myself, to my own family as to why I'm leaving, my mom even said that she's not going to even watch me, whatever I do now after Isibaya she doesn't care. "

Celeste briefly added that she felt that the character was becoming huge and it was not exactly falling into her career plans.

"When you want to do something else, you need to take a bit of a break. The thing is with acting, the character comes with you when people meet me at my shows sometimes people expect me to be Siphokazi."

Celeste will now fully focus on her comedy tour and other opportunities via comedy.

The comedian/actress explained that she is currently in discussions with the producers of the show in planning on how she's going to exit Isibaya as it needs to make sense to the viewers.

We're sure the cast and crew of Isibaya will miss her dearly, she seems like a ball of fun!
