It's been months since Scandal! actor Mbulelo Ndlazilwana was arrested on suspicion of human trafficking along with 17 other men after a raid on a brothel in Springs, east of Johannesburg and the actor is living his life as though nothing happened.
Earlier this year, social media was buzzing with curiosity after news broke that an unnamed actor from the eTv soapie Scandal! was arrested and everyone was trying to figure out who the said actor was.
It was later revealed to be Ndlazilwana who got off scott-free after prosecutors decided not to charge him.
He has continued working in his role as Scelo on the soapie in addition to posting Instagram images with somber captions such as this one in particular that got our attention.
The caption reads as follows:
"Lesson of the day.
Life is too short so..
Stop seeking people's approval and acceptance, never be afraid to be a renegade and follow your own path.
Don't waste your time with/for people who don't give two fucks about you, rather cut them off and save yourself further heartache.
Don't go around talking about or judging people, especially if you don't have facts about things and act like you're perfect because you're not.
Remember that not everyone wishes you well and not everyone is praying for your success and well being so keep your dreams and plans to yourself.
Live free, Dream big, Eat well and Travel, do what makes YOU happy because that's all that matters. Remember the ones who were truly there for you especially in tough times - those are the people you should break bread with when things are great. Lastly, can we all live our own lives and stop making it our life's mission to constantly be in other people's business. Do these things and you will realize how much more time you have on your hands now that you're only focusing on your life instead of others."
Despite concerns about how the public would receive him following the incident, he seems to be doing alright.
