Speaking about his new role, Simelane told Daily Sun that Jasper is a guy from Gauteng and is in KwaMashu for Thobile and GC.

"GC and Thobile owe this guy big money and he's coming to KwaMashu to get it...They have been going around in KwaMashu, bragging about the car that they don't own. They even undermine people of KwaMashu, but the truth is about who the car belongs to will be revealed."

He told the publication that he is happy to be part of Uzalo and he wishes to get a big role one day.

"Uzalo is the biggest TV show in Mzansi. So saying that I'm excited for acting in it is an understatement. I don't know how I feel. I am very happy. I wish one day I get a big role in a big TV drama. I like acting and people love me."

His best friend and  KwaMaMkhize reality TV co-star Shawn Mkhize also recently joined Uzalo.

Shawn landed her very first acting gig when she joined Uzalo in March this year.
Announcing the good news on social media she wrote: β€œI am extremely excited for my guest appearance on Uzalo, what a fun experience it was to join the cast, I can't wait for everyone to see another side of my many hidden talents.”

Recently Uzalo fans have been seeing the return of their favorite characters such as Thobile, GC, and Mastermind.

Speaking about his return on Instagram, Khaya Dladla who plays the role of GC on the show wrote: β€œBack by popular demand. You have been asking me when is this day ever going to come? @stainedglasstv1 and @uzalo_sabx! Have decided to answer your prayers. Thank you for the love & support in this journey, it humbles me.”

Nokuthula Mabika popularly known as Thobile also confirming the return of the duo on Instagram thanked fans for their prayers. She wrote: "Tomorrow is the day #UzaloNation thank you so much for your prayers, they finally came to fruition.. your favorite duo is back! Tune in promise to give you a show.”

However, fans were also disappointed to learn that Mxolisi played by Nay Maps Maphalale will not be returning to Uzalo.

Setting the record straight, Uzalo's spokesperson Nomfundo Zondi told Daily Sun: "Just like Mastermind (Ntokozo "TK" Dlamini), he was going to help MaNgcobo (Dawn Thandeka King) with her heist. We had an agreement with Nay Maps but his busy schedule clashed with the time at which he was due for a shoot. We had to make changes in the storyline. It's not like we took our viewers for a ride. Nay Maps was too busy. His busy schedule couldn't allow him to come for a shoot."
