“I’ve never worked a day on Scandal! because I did what I loved, and my artist-child was allowed to play freely; all that’s left to say is, thank you to the Scandal! and… until our paths cross again,” said Kgomotso.

“As my last day in YV’s shoes approaches, I can’t help but reminisce about the thrill ride it’s been to navigate this gem of a character, gifted to me by the dedicated and talented Scandal! writers,” she said.
