Masasa made her triumphant return on Scandal after exiting the show in 2016.
Her return was shortlived as she was gunned down by Mthunzi after a few months. Her death left her legion of fans heartbroken and they soon flooded social media with posts, paying tribute to her and expressing how heavy their heart is following her death.
Speaking to Tshisalive Masasa explained that when she received a call to come back she was going through a lot emotionally.
She said, “Returning to where I’d started my career really rattled me. A few months ago, I got a call from Scandal!, telling me they wanted to bring my old character back. To be quite honest, I had mixed emotions about it. So much about me had changed, and I wondered if going back would do the character any good, and how it would be perceived by the public. During my last days at Scandal!, I was personally going through emotional turmoil. That, I suppose, assisted in how I played the character. Therefore, I knew that how I approached Thembeka this time around would have to be different.”
