TK recently returned to Uzalo and briefly stated that his appearance was only a short stint. The actor will now play the character of Bafana in Mzansi Magic’s DiepCity. Speaking to Daily Sun, he confirmed his role and said he is excited to join the show.
"Bafana comes back to Diepsloot after years of living in the fancy suburbs of Fourways with his father who is a renowned businessman. But weeks after his return, he is caught up in a messy situation that proves the notion- three is a crowd," he told SunBuzz.
He said he is thrilled to join the show because he has been off-screen for a while. "I am thrilled to be joining such a fast-paced exhilarating prime time show, especially because i've been off the screen for a while now," he said.
The last time Mastermind showed face on Uzalo was last year in May when the show bid farewell to one of it's main characters MaNgcobo, played by Dawn Thandeka King. MaNgcobo was in a very difficult situation and Mastermind came in to helped her get out of it.
Apparently, his exit was caused by him being fired when producers no longer wanted to work with him. Uzalo and TK, however, cleared the air and said he would appear more frequently in the future. This is why he returned this month.
The actor told Gagasi FM last year that he took some time off to focus on his Queen Jessica Nkosi and their daughter Namisa. Uzalo’s PR manager Marang Setshwaelo also went on to refute any claims that TK had been suspended or fired, “We’d like to make it clear that he was never dismissed or suspended, we can confirm that TK Dlamini, also known as Mastermind, will be appearing on Uzalo in the near future," said Setshwaelo.
