A visibly joyful Israel Masteke Zulu accompanied by Takie Nemangowe, the Alex FM Station Manager and his manager MaVusana nailed the Amapiano Adiwele challenge. The challenge inspired by Young Stunna and Kabza De Small Adiwele song went viral across South Africa and trended among musicians, actors and politicians.
The legendary award-winning actor pleaded with the Gomora directors to be written off the storyline after being diagnosed with gangrene. Later on, he had some of his toes amputated due to the aggressive infection that causes footrot.

“MaOrange is recovering well surrounded by close friends and family; we thank you all for the prayers and messages. We are planning for greater things, look forward to the unexpected, we have projects lined up, a return to the screens is inevitable.”
