The real reason why Actress Baby Cele (Gabisile) is leaving Uzalo


Legendary actress Baby Cele-Maloka has explained the rationale she’s leaving SABC1’s Uzalo. Earlier this month, Uzalo confirmed her departure, leaving viewers heartbroken.

Baby, who plays Gabisile Mdletshe on the show, said there was no animosity between her and therefore the Uzalo production and has landed a task on a replacement drama to be produced by Uzalo makers, glass Productions.

Her last appearance in Uzalo is going to be between February and March next year.

Baby told Daily Sun she was taking an opportunity to possess enough time to specialize in the new role.

“I’ll relocate from KZN to Joburg for a replacement drama shoot and have longer on behalf of me and my family,’’ she said.

“Those who’re too fast to spread the news about my character are spoiling my surprises and therefore the fun.”

She said she’ll make a surprise comeback at the top of next year.

“My fans should settle down. I’ll still appear on their favorite soapie until the start of next year and disappear for a short time and return.”

She said her bosses were good to her.

“I’d wish to thank glass Productions for giving me an opportunity on a daily soapie and time to heal,” she said.
