Omuhle Gela allegedly walked out on Uzalo because the conditions of her contract were altered, leaving her employer in a difficult position.
After relocating from Johannesburg to KwaZulu-Natal for the purpose of appearing in the show, the actress apparently made the decision not to show up for a shoot because the terms of her contract were altered. This was revealed by a source to Zimoja.
Omuhle, while speaking to the outlet, acknowledged the claim but stated that she was unable to comment further on it.
She made her return to television in February, when she was cast in the role of the intelligent and calculating Nomaswazi Magwaza, who is the daughter of Njinji Magwaza. This role brought her back to the small screen (played by Thembi Nyandeni).
Omuhle announced her intention to leave the show immediately in a post on her Instagram timeline, writing, “I have made the decision to leave the show with immediate effect; everything expressed in this article is 100% factual, and I have nothing else to say or dispute.”
Stained Glass released a statement that was shared with TshisaLIVE, in which they wished Tshisa the best of luck in all of her future endeavors.
“Omuhle Gela, who plays the role of Nomaswazi Magwaza on SABC 1’s hit show Uzalo, will no longer be a part of the show since she did not agree to the terms of the contractual agreement. In the event that there are any developments pertaining to this topic, we will keep you informed. Stained Glass would like to take this opportunity to extend our gratitude to Omuhle for being a member of our family and to wish her the best of luck in all of her future endeavors.”
She celebrated the success of the show in an Instagram photo that she published in July, when things were looking up.
Omuhle reacted to the news that the viewing statistics for the SABC soap opera reportedly peaked at 6.1 million viewers in June, which was an increase from 5.8 million viewers in May.
In the post, Omuhle expressed her appreciation for the support she has been receiving, citing the fact that this is her first stint on SABC1 following her role as Busi Motsamai in SABC2’s Muvhango 12 years ago. Omuhle played the role of Busi Motsamai.
“I would want to offer a heartfelt thank you to all of my supporters, both online and in person. It is my very first time hosting a program on @mzansi fosho, and by the grace of God, my very first show was the most watched show in South Africa.
“The love that people have shown for one another has been so genuine and amazing. Yoh! Also, I want to give a shout out to the incredible members of the cast and crew that I met there. They made us feel right at home by welcoming our new family with open arms. I want to thank you for the never-ending direct messages you’ve sent me and for the love and support you’ve shown for my craft. Blessings from God”
A beauty school scholarship to the value of R28,500 is being given away by Omuhle Gela.
Actress Omuhle Gela has said that she will be awarding a scholarship to a deserving beauty student as part of her commitment to assisting in the effort to ensure that every girl has the opportunity to receive an education.
In celebration of the month of August as well as International Women’s Day, the star of Muvhango took to social media with a post announcing that she will be giving a scholarship in the amount of R28,500 to an aspirant who wants to study and qualify as a nail technician at the coveted Tammy Taylor Nail School in either Pretoria or Cape Town. The scholarship will be awarded to the person who applies first.
According to Omuhle, the person who is awarded the scholarship will be supplied with all of the resources and business knowledge required to realize their ambitions in the nail industry.
The expert explained that the beginner, intermediate, advanced, and two master workshops are all included in the price of the full training course. “The cost of the full training course includes expert training.”
When she can, the actress is known for her selfless acts of generosity. In the beginning of this year, she played hostess to a high-powered motherhood-themed luncheon that was attended by 25 other influential mothers.
After hosting and pampering the 25 special mothers as part of her “Mom’s Day Off” events, the celebrity stated that she hopes to provide the yummy mummies with a forum in which they can discuss the challenges and joys of being a parent, relax, and ultimately support one another as black women who are responsible for raising the next generation.
“It’s very important that we empower one another as young black women raising our future generation,” said Omuhle. “It’s also very important that we have good conversations, network, have good food and drinks, just let loose every once in a while, and just enjoy ourselves.”
She is a new mother herself, and she knows that being a mother can be exhausting, so she knew that a day of doing nothing but putting their feet up was exactly what they required.
“I’ll be the first to confess that sometimes being a parent may be exhausting! Therefore, we absolutely required this. I am grateful to the mothers who agreed to spend the day off with me. You all looked absolutely stunning, and it was a pleasure to finally put faces with names,” she wrote in her note.
