Since its debut on Showmax, The Wife has left its viewers emotional one way or the other. The storyline is filled with plot twists that viewers cannot help but be curious about what the next episodes will bring. In last week’s episode, viewers were left with a cliffhanger, not knowing if Mpande made it or not after he was shot. However, today, it has been confirmed that young actor Ishmauel Songo ‘Mpande Zulu’ has left the hit Showmax show, The Wife.
In last week’s episodes, the Majola brothers found a group of men to attack the Zulu household. While they showed their faces at the wedding to avoid suspicion later, their men were preparing for war. As planned, they attacked the Zulu wedding while the guests and people were still gathered. In the rain of bullets, they struck several loved ones, including Mvelo, Nkosana’s child, and Mpande Zulu, one of the three youngest brothers.
Ishmauel Songo has taken to his Instagram to announce officially to his fans that he has formally left the show. After this week’s episodes were released, viewers got to know that Mpande did not make it. In his post captioned:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you for believing in my craft. Being a story teller is not easy because you ” living a day in a life of somebody else”. The support has been crazy!!! ❤️❤️❤️ THANK YOU SO MUCH TO STAINED GLASS PRODUCTION, for giving me this opportunity.
