However, this year is proving to be a sad time for The Queen fans as Ntanto Duma might join the list of talent who have recently made their exit from the hit telenovela. According to a report by Isolezwe, actress Ntando Duma is set to be leaving the popular show for greener pastures.

Duma joined the telenovela last year as she portrayed the role of Mpho Sebata who received an underwhelming review from viewers due to her “dismal acting” as many social media users put it. With her eyes fixated on the global acting scale, Duma plans to head off to Mexico to be part of the AfroBeats In Cancun.
“That’s really up to me, I’m going to Mexico… there are a lot of programs I’m going to be part of with other celebrities. I will also manage the programs under this event. I have a lot to do because I have a list of plans for them,” she told the publication.
Rumour has it that Duma’s final appearance will be at the end of June or early July. The actress’ possible exit has already got tongues wagging on Twitter.
Duma’s possible departure is preceded by actors Loyiso MacDonald and Xolani Mayekiso who recently took their last bow on the telenovela.
