Mangcobo And Nkunzi’s Job On The Line As Uzalo Bans Kissing
Guess we will have to say goodbye to romantic and bedroom moments on our screen by our Uzalo favorite couple. Mzansi’s most-watched soapie with over 10.3 million viewers Uzalo is set to resume production removing all kissing scenes. This comes after producers of the show decided to cut all scenes that involve kissing, intimacy, and any physical contact from our favorite actors.
Insiders with the latest knowledge on the going on of the show said writers were forced to change the scenes and do a lot of rewriting after the decision for Uzalo to ban kissing was announced. The decision was made as part of the show’s attempt to limit the spread of Covid-19. The insider said the changed storyline had a big impact on Uzalo’s episodes.
“Most of these Uzalo actors will suffer and still don’t know what the future holds because of these drastic changes. The producers and writers have had to focus on the plots within the storyline that don’t involve couples in order to practice the social distancing rule” said the source.
The insider said the future of popular onscreen couples such as Sbusiso and Fikile, played by Simphiwe Majozi and Nelisa Mchunu-Nomcebo and Qhabanga, played by Nombulelo Mhlongo and Syabonga Shibe, are still not known since the scripts had been changed.
The insider said “There is no episode in Uzalo that passes by without these couples appearing in bed together or hugging. They’re regarded as onscreen powerful and popular couples. Things are going to take another turn. Its turf and they will only find out what is going to happen about their storylines tomorrow.”
Uzalo’s main characters, Mangcobo and Nkunzi will fell the full effect of the kissing ban as they have recently moved in together on screen.
