Israel Talks About Reason For Exiting Gomora
At first, Israel Zulu revealed that his contract on the Mzansi Magic hit show Gomora didn’t get renewed. But now, the iconic actor has revealed that he’s sick and his health is allegedly deteriorating.
Speaking to Daily Sun, Israel said he started getting sick when he joined the megahit telenovela, and effects haven’t been getting any better. It got to the point where he used a wheelchair during his last days on set.
“ The reason I’m leaving the show is because I’m sick, I started getting sick shortly after I joined Gomora and I decided to leave the show because I saw it was getting delicate for me because I ca n’t walk. Towards the end when I was shooting my last scene, I was using a wheelchair to get on set,” he revealed to the publication.
Although the decision to leave the telenovela as an actor and return to behind the scenes wasn’t an easy bone, Israel saw it fit because his health comes first.
“ Performance is my life, this was one of the hardest opinions that I had to take, but I saw that my health matters the most and I need to recover. It was also hard because people had fallen in love with my character and I see some of them are protesting saying they’re going to stop watching,” reckons Israel.
The publication reveals that Israel suffers from gangrene which is said to be a veritably dangerous and”potentially fatal condition”which is caused by dead apkins, “ I’ll recover, but not any time soon,” he told the paper.
His legions of suckers did express concern regarding his exit with some saying they won’t be watching the show. But some were breathing a huge shriek of relief because they feel as though Gomora pens aren’t doing the character any justice.
Such a important actor bored a lot of observers because they feel he should be given a more stronger part, not the one of Don.
One of the observers said,”Don plot is stupid and does not make sense, how does a person with plutocrat act like a hobbo and stay in people’s houses by force you loosing it Gomora was coming right but this is pure gibberish,”@Luv5Preet said.
Speaking about his character when he joined, he told Daily Sun, “ I ’ll be playing Don. He’d a relationship with Zodwa, played by Sannah Mchunu, and they had Teddy. He ditched Zodwa for a rich woman and went to live in palaces. Unfortunately, the woman lately failed,” he told the paper.
“ Now he’s down and out as the woman’s family took everything and he has returned to Alex. He ’ll come back with his son Sibongile. Don will also be competition for Mam’Sonto, played by Connie Chiume. He struggles a lot after returning and ends up getting into kidnapping. Soon he starts taking over Sonto’s operations.
“Don is coming to take over but people will love him because he’s funny. There will be sadness, anguish, action and more importantly, drama.”
