Cape Town - Viewers will soon be saying goodbye to SK Khoza’s character, Shaka Khoza on Mzansi Magic’s The Queen.

Speaking to DRUM, Head of PR & Publicity at Mzansi Magic, Philly Kubheka confirmed his departure and said it was due to the actor’s character no longer fitting in with the storyline.

"With the storyline having evolved, the character Shaka does not form a part of it currently. SK Khoza is a very talented and passionate actor who remains an integral part of Mzansi Magic’s authentic storytelling," she said.

But according to Sunday Sun, the 33-year-old was fired from the show due to being unprofessional and having ‘diva tendencies.’

Speaking to the publication, a source reportedly revealed how SK's - whose real name is Sthembiso Khoza - personal life would follow him to work.

"He's always in trouble. If he's delaying production, he's involved in child support drama that has been following him to work. He's not the same person (that) he was. It's as if fame changed him," the source said.

The sources also further claimed that Khoza was warned on various occasions before his contract was terminated.

It is not the first time that the actor makes headlines for the wrong reasons, earlier this year, the actor found himself being the talk of the town after fans accused him of cheating on the mother of his children with his colleague, Pabee Moganedi who previously played the role of Mamiki on The Queen.

Multiple attempts to get comment from SK and his PR team were unsuccessful at the time of publishing.
