Fans can now breath a sigh of relief as the actor is not going anywhere. He took to his Instagram account to assure them that he is not leaving the show.

"Ngithi asibonge isupport yenu on this S2 of #TheWifeShowmax we are honored to be part of this amazing journey with you. AS FOR ME DYING, HEEE HEEE!! UNGAFA, oMajola nezibamu zabo zezi nyoni. Basazongithola Kahle mina, nguCHAIRMAN MAYIBAMBELA..oNever Die By Mistake," he wrote.

Abdul plays the character of Nqobizitha Zulu, one of the eight controversial Zulu brothers who are in the deadly taxi business. His exceptional acting range constantly leaves viewers of the show in awe and they never stop singing his praises on social media.

In a now deleted Instagram post, Abdul announced his shocking departure and thanked the cast and crew of the show for embracing him to the fullest.  "It's been an amazing journey with you all on #TheWifeShowmax. Thank you to the entire cast and crew for embracing me to the fullest. I shall miss you all and wish you a greater journey ahead. You have inspired my career with this amazing show, ngiyabonga mina uNqobizitha Zulu lo, sengihembe. Heee heee!!." he announced. 

Fans were left heartbroken by his announcement, but we are glad he is not leaving the show as he is one of the actors who have carried the it from the first season.

Ever since The Wife Premiered, the show has been leaving viewers enthralled with its captivating storyline and talented characters. Its premiere broke Uthando Lodumo’s record for the most first-day views of all-time on Showmax, as well as Devilsdorp’s record for the most hours watched within four days of launch.

Inspired by Dudu Busani-Dube’s bestseller Hlomu The Wife, the 40-episode first season tells the story of a journalist (Mbalenhle Mavimbela from Skeem Saam) who falls in love with a taxi driver, Mqhele (Bonko Khoza from Neckie Youth), not realizing that when you marry a man, you marry his secrets.

Yesterday Showmax announced a new character Naledi played by the gorgeous and talented Gaisang K Noge. Naledi is a doctor who falls for Qhawe Zulu played by Kwenzo Ngcobo.

Regarding the pressure she felt coming into the series, she expressed a desire to not let the other actors down, since they are brilliant actors. "I'm stepping into this role that already exists and people love so much. It's scary. There is a level of pressure because the performers in this story are brilliant, and people love this story so much, so you don't want to let them down. But the advantage of playing Naledi is that, even in the actual story, she just joined the world out of nowhere. She's an outsider; she has no relations. So I use that energy to my advantage.

I’m not like anyone else; I can’t be like anyone else. All I can do is be Naledi. The only shoes I have to fill are hers. Nobody else. Everybody’s unique and perfect in their own way, so I’m going to hold onto that as my guideline," she said
