Bhulose was reportedly fired after missing a shoot and on top of that for not seeing eye to eye with Duma Ndlovu, one of the creators.

"His on-screen persona, however, was cut short when he was fired for missing the shoot. His problems grew worse when he fell out with Duma, who also happens to be the drama series’ creator. He was let go in 2018 due to his lack of professionalism" wrote IndAfrica

 After Bhulose's exit, it because quite a trend for the show to let go more actors because of their high-end demands and unprofessionalism. KaMadonsela portrayed by Fundiswa Zwane was next on the chopping block for demanded a salary raise and was later replaced by another equally talented actress, Brenda Mhlongo.

"According to a report from Isolezwe, the actress was fired after asking for a wage raise from her management. She was reportedly uninformed of Fundiswa’s departure, therefore it is believed that her departure surprised her. Brenda Mhlongo will purportedly take her position" wrote IndAfrica
