Isibaya Departures That Ruined The Show For The Fans. While a lot of series and comedies have struggled to recover after their main star/stars leave, soapies and Telenovela’s recover very quickly. Unlike overseas soapie actors, South African actors leave to explore/unleash their talents elsewhere all the time.
Isibaya Departures That Ruined The Show For The Fans.Sometimes they get in trouble with the law, like when Khanyi who played Akhona got in trouble for drinking and driving(again)and lost her role on The Queen. Other times, stars just felt they had told the story they had set out to tell and felt the show was, perhaps, past its prime and resigned.
While 2020 has been a horrific year for a lot of people, it’s been a nightmare for Isibaya who’ve lost 5 main cast members in less than 6 months. These are actors who’ve been with the show since it’s inception and were the reason Isibaya was loved by the masses.
Actors Who Left Isibaya

When a legendary actor becomes egotistical and more dramatic than his character, it can get pretty ugly very quickly.
Apparently the actor was placed on “special leave” after he wanted to be given preferential treatment on set.
The veteran actor, who is known for his roles in the now-defunct SABC1 Generations, etv’s Scandal and Rhythm City, is said to have made huge demands just as the show producers were preparing for the shoot of Isibaya season 8.
Jessica Nkosi: Qondi
Jessica played the role of Queen Qondi on Isibaya. When she started on the show she was only supposed to be onscreen for a few episodes, but she quickly became a fan favourite and the producers decided to extend her contract.
She left Isibaya with no plans but soon got approached by Ferguson’s Films for a role on The Queen.
