Rhythm City actress Amo Chidi, who has played Reneilwe for the past eight years, has finally spoken out about her exit from the soapie.

In a short, heart-warming message to her colleagues and fans, the actress said her goodbyes – saying she’s had a great time working for the production.

"I has been an honor to have shared the past 8years of my career with an excellent cast and crew. It is bitter-sweet to say goodbye, you will be greatly missed. My time at Rhythm City has been fruitful and I'm thankful for the opportunity to learn and grow creatively [sic]."

Amo is one of three actors who are leaving the soapie. Fortunately, fans will still get to see her on the small screen until mid-April.

The actress is still playing her cards very close to her chest about her next move in the industry.

"As I humbly begin the next chapter of my career, I'd like to wish my Rhythm City family continued success," she says.

Unlike three years ago, she is really leaving this time. Back in 2017 fans of the show thought the actress was being replaced when the soapie ran an online look-alike competition.

Rhythm City pleaded with fans to relax because they were looking for someone who looks like Amo's character to join the show and not to replace her.
