“So on Friday, we said a very subtle peace out to Xolile Langa. Yes, I can now finally say it out loud that we won’t be seeing her for a while. To exit the very same way she came into our lives was a homage to the true nature of her being… putting family first. That’s what we had in common; the love of family.”

She said that one thing that really stands out about her character is its growth.

“I can say so much about Xoli… but what will always stand out is her growth. From being Xolile Langa, to Xolile Langa Mayiza, to finally Xolile Langa-Medupe. And what a journey that was,” she added that this is not goodbye and did not rule out the possibility of returning to the show.

“This is not goodbye; this is till we meet again. I mean it’s @officialetvscandal after all. Thank you for the love, support and recognition. These past 4years have been magical… it was an absolute honour to play this character and to be a part of many family’s lives/homes in this country.

This is one I’ll forever cherish. Oh but the memories… the joy, the laughter, the lessons, the BOOMIES!!! (THAT'S THE SCENE moments). I’ll never forget this opportunity. Later guys,” she concluded.

Another actor to leave the show is Brighton Ngoma, who’s been part of the telenovela for a decade if not more. He has decided that it’s time for him to move on and try his luck elsewhere.

Speaking to TshisaLive, the actor said that after playing a character for such a long time, it was only a matter of time before it came to its natural end.

“Having played the character for so long, it was only a matter of time before the journey came to its natural end. I see it as growth. I can only hope that the fans are as moved as we were when we performed the storyline. Death is sometimes the beginning of new, greater things. His newfound love for Dintle is probably the biggest heartbreak as a result of his death," he shared.

“To Quinton, I'd say, 'thank you for the journey, the lessons, the life'."

In June 2021, Lusanda Mbane, who played Boniswa announced her exit from the drama following a five-year journey. She grew into a character that the fans loved to hate.
