After her four year tenure as Yvonne Langa on e.tv’s flagship soapie, Scandal!, the channel has announced Kgomotso’s exit.
Although the channel claimed she would leave “temporarily”, it remains to be seen if the award-winning actress will return at a later stage.
Her current story line which feature 10-year-old-year-old boy Tebello, whose real name’s Litlhonolofatso Litlhakanyane, has captured the show’s viewers.
“She will be temporarily exiting the show. Her last on-air appearance in the current story line will be on 2 June 2020,” etv’s head of local productions, Ziyanda Mngomezulu said.
Said Ziyanda: “We have been fortunate to have Kgomotso on our screens. Her professionalism, infectious personality, and enthusiastic spirit has been a great asset to our channel. We will miss having Kgomotso as a part of the eFamily, and we wish her all the best in her life’s next chapter. It is certainly never goodbye, but rather see you later.”
Meanwhile, Kgomotso said she had a great time on set and that it didn’t feel like she was working.
“I’ve never worked a day on Scandal! because I did what I loved, and my artist-child was allowed to play freely. All that’s left to say is, thank you to the Scandal! and e.tv family…until our paths cross again,” said Kgomotso, who is nominated for a Safta this year in the best supporting actress category.
