Local comedy on hold for Saba

Local comedy Umantolwana 3 has been put on hold to allow Saba Mbixane to recover from a horrific accident.

The Umhlobo Wenene DJ is set to make his movie debut in the comedy, but was in a motorbike accident two weeks ago. So while the DJ-turned-actor recovers in ICU the films bosses have decided to put it on hold, according to The Daily Sun.

Meanwhile Saba's co-stars have praised his talent and enthusiasm

“Saba brought a few ideas on set. For us it is important to wait for him because he not only brings life to the movie, but he is easy and fun to work with. The best we can do is to pray for him until he joins us on the set again,” actress Noluvo Ntapu (who played the role of Patricia on Generations) told the paper. 

The film was almost complete and if all goes well may be released after Easter.
