News Hub Creator

The worst feeling in the world is to be completely forgotten in a few months after releasing a few chart-topping singles.

Some local entertainment celebrities have attempted a return that has failed, while others have succumbed to the pressure and competition of the industry.

Although the entertainment sector in South Africa is modest, there are many fresh faces making their mark in the industry today. As a result, it is unable to accommodate all types of performers.

Some stars are stepping away from the spotlight to focus on non-showbiz pursuits such as philanthropy and other hobbies.


Zinhle Mabena

She is well known for her roles as Tshireletso on eKasi: Our Stories and as Sphesihle on Intersexions. A baby was born to her and Robert Ngwenya, her husband. Mabena decided to take a sabbatical and focus on raising her kid and caring for her family.


Florence Mokgatsi

After tying the marriage in 2017 and welcoming a new bundle of work, Florence Mokgatsi's character on Isibaya was written off of the show in 2019.

Tshidi, a character in the SABC1 children's drama series Soul Buddyz, is another part that she is well-known for. She also appeared in the SABC1 sitcom Nomzamo in a minor role. In 2017, she and her longtime boyfriend James Segal were married. Because they had a beautiful child, she was forced to take a vacation from her career in show business.


Kagiso Rakosa

Sharon, a character played by Kagiso Rakosa on the SABC1 soap opera Generations, is one of the actress' most well-known roles. In the eKasi+ detective drama Traffic, she played the sister of Bonnie Mbuli's character, Detective Lungi Mlaba (also played by Andiswa Mlaba). After quitting Generations a few years ago, she was supposed to make a comeback in 2015. But her supporters are still patiently waiting for her to return.
