Skeem Saam actor Bongani Masondo, who plays the role of Mangaliso, has left the popular SABC 1 soapie after the show’s producers allegedly failed to agree to his salary demands.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE, Skeem Saam spokesperson Percy Vilakazi said that they had offered Bongani a new contract but that the production, and Bonagani’s agent could not agree on the salary increase the actor would receive.
“As with all our actors, we sat down with Bongani’s agent to discuss a renewal of his contract. Our offer came with an increase. His representative told us about Bongani’s new salary demands and it was a figure that was too great for us to afford. We tried to negotiate but at the end of the day he decided to leave the show,” Percy said.
