Youtube content creator and media personality Lasizwe has elbowed his BFF and Skeem Saam actor Cedric Fourie out of his reality show.
Lasizwe has axed Fourie from the new season of his popular reality show, Fake it till you make it, which airs on MTV Base. In an interview with Sunday World, Lasizwe, whose real name is Thulasizwe Dambuza, confirmed he had kicked Fourie to the curb because his show had shifted focus and that he had secured the signature of his sister, Shantel Mchunu, to be part of it.
“I have made a change to the cast. Made one change. Cedric isn’t part of the season and I have included my sister Shantel,” he said.
When asked if this had affected his bromance with Fourie, Lasizwe giggled and declined to comment.
He also said the production for the show‘s new season, which will show him as a father and an adopted son, was near completion.
Lasizwe also said he had initially planned to complete shooting by the end of this month but was disturbed by the outbreak of Covid-19.
He said shooting would commence as soon as the lockther down was lifted. “The show isn’t complete, there are still some parts of reality that need to be shot. We are still half a season away if I am not mistaken. When the lockdown is done we are going to shoot like crazy, just to play catch up,” he said.
In a promo video seen by the publication, Lasizwe introduces his “daughter” and sister in the show.
Lasizwe, who is actress Khanyi Mbau’s brother, declined to comment on whether he was really the biological father of the child, but explained that this was a role he was willing to take on wholeheartedly.
“The idea about fatherhood wasn’t my plan but it was just the result of circumstance and the situation that I got myself into.
I just had to kinda face the situation head-on,” he said.
“You will get to see this season grow. You will get to understand why I made the decision that I made because it had to be done.
“But I don’t want to jump into a lot of details because you will see the complexity around it when you watch the show. If I decide to spill the beans of what is going on, then I would be giving you the whole plot,” he said.
