Actor and musician Mxolisi “Zulu Boy” Majozi exited e.tv’s telenovela, Durban Gen, to work with businesswoman Shauwn “MaMkhize” Mkhize. 

The musician exited the show two months before Daily Sun announced the millionaire businesswoman joined the show on Tuesday, 16 August.

The star Mxolisi “Zulu Boy” Majozi, who played the character of McGyver also revealed that he dumped the e.tv telenovela, Durban Gen because he wanted to focus on his music besides his new venture with MaMkhize’s AM Royal.  

“I’m a busy man. I recently released a song titled Bamnethela, the former TKZee member S’bu ‘Amaloya’ Ntshangase. For me to be featured on the song is an honor. I still can’t believe that S’bu chose me. It means a lot,” said Zuluboy.  

Zulu Boy also revealed back in May that he was going to release new music with former TKZee member Sbu “AmaLawyer” Ntshangase.  

He also rubbished claims that he got fired from the cancelled telenovela due to misconduct.   

He told IOL that he filed his notice to resign before time because he secured a second job.  

“I am working with MaMkhize in Royal AM. I gave them 30 days to write me out of the script for my exit on the story. It’s not true that I was fired. These are just rumours from people who want to tarnish my reputation.”
