Hot on the heels of her heartbreaking exit on Scandal, the actress has scored a new TV role. Masasa has been hyping Mzansi's newest telenovela The Legacy on Twitter and some fans knew there was more than meets the eye.

The show airs on Mnet and Masasa portrays the role of a Journalist, Kwanele Losi. The Legacy is centered around wealthy people who live dysfunctional lives and it  features a star-studded including the likes of former Isidingo villain Michelle Botes, Golden Horn Award winner for Best Supporting Actress Mary Anne Barlows, Anton Jeftha, Siyabonga Thwala, Kgomotso Christopher and Deon Lotz.

As she made her debut Masasa tweeted " Suprise", and fans took to the platform to congratulate her on the new character.


Masasa recently made her triumphant return on Scandal after exiting the show in 2016. Her return lasted for a couple of months until she was gunned down by Mthunzi. Her death left her legion of fans heartbroken and they soon flooded social media with posts, paying tribute to her and expressing how heavy their heart is following her death.

Speaking to Tshisalive Masasa explained that when she received a call to come back she was going through a lot emotionally.

β€œReturning to where I'd started my career really rattled me. A few months ago, I got a call from Scandal!, telling me they wanted to bring my old character back. To be quite honest, I had mixed emotions about it. So much about me had changed, and I wondered if going back would do the character any good, and how it would be perceived by the public.

β€œDuring my last days at Scandal!, I was personally going through emotional turmoil. That, I suppose, assisted in how I played the character. Therefore, I knew that how I approached Thembeka this time around would have to be different.”

During her break, Masasa juggled a couple of acting gigs, from theatre to TV. The Thespian also headed back to school to further her studies.

A few years back she told V-Entertainment that she will soon cut her teeth in directing, proving that she is a woman of many talents "Very soon I'm gonna take up an opportunity to direct a theatre play. It's still in a very sensitive stage right now so I can't really chat about it."

Congratulations on your new role sis.
