Rapulana Seiphemo’s departure came as a shock to not only soapie viewers but the Generations The Legacy team as well. Seiphemo had a year left on his contract with Generations: The Legacy. The team expected him to discuss contractual extension but the actor opted instead to be released. After playing Tau Mogale on Generations for a decade, his departure from the soapie has been felt by viewers. His reasons for leaving Generations and joining the Ferguson Production are still unclear but it is evident the actor was not willing to wait out his contract. However, there were issues between Rapulana and his co-star, Zoe Mthiyane, who plays Zitha Langa. An affair that turned ugly and ended with Zoe Mthiyane being fired from the soapie.
However, his presence on The Queen has proven to add an exciting twist to the soapie. Rapulana joined The Queen alongside Jessica Nkosi and Ntando Duma, the Sebatas. Jessica Nkosi also earns an estimated between R40,000 and R50,000. The family has caused mayhem for the Khoza who reign has remained unchallenged for a long time. The Sebata, led by Colonel Sebata has taken over Khoza territory and has proven to be a bigger challenge than Harriet ever expected.
We can only wonder how the battle of the drug lords will end.
