Calling it a day, actress Candice Modiselle will be leaving Generations: The Legacy to focus on her media company, Busetsa.

This would see her ending her three year romance with the SABC 1 soapie. Apparently, the soapie's viewers will not only miss the lovely actress, but the show as well, as it will be going on a month-long break.

In a post on her Instagram page, announcing her departure, the well decorated actress Candice, who played Lerato, gave her reflection of her time on the show.
"Truly one of the most bittersweet moments of my career, to actively leave a place I’ve called home. What started off as 3 months of the antagonizing rebel who eventually won over Lesedi’s friendship, became 3 years of the Lerato Matema coming of age story. Silly crushes, secrets, drug addiction, activism, kidnappings, campaigns, sisterhood, a sense of belonging, struggles with identity and young love [sic]," she wrote.
