INSIDE ABDUL KHOZA ALLEGED EXIT City Press reveals that the former Isibaya actor Abdul Khoza, who plays Nqobizitha Nqoba' Zulu has left The Wife season three.

--

Rumours of his exit began in March when he posted a since-deleted cryptic message on his Instagram account bidding farewell to the role.

It's been an amazing journey with you all on #TheWifeShowmax. Thank you to the entire cast and crew for embracing me to the fullest. I shall miss you all and wish you a greater journey ahead. You have inspired my career with this amazing show, ngiyabonga mina uNqobizitha Zulu lo, sengihembe. Heee heee!!

According to TshisaLIVE the star later nipped rumours of his exit in the bud and blamed it on the Zulu brothers' rival on the show the Majolas.

I'm sure this is the Majolas who ran to media. But now that I have your attention! Uthi uMa ka Ndumiso ninga bona amabele enyokha. Wemame.Ngithi asibonge isupport yenu on this S2 of #TheWifeShowmax. We are honoured to be part of this amazing journey with you. As for me dying, heee heee! Ungafa, oMajola nezibamu zabo zezinyoni. Basazongithola Kahle mina, nguCHAIRMAN MAYIBAMBELA oNever Die By Mistake.

City Press adds that the channel declined to comment on Khoza's reported exit at the time of publishing this article.

Kamogelo Aphane, from Stained Glass TV, the production company for The Wife, said:

Abdul Khoza has not been replaced in season three of The Wife. We don't want to share any spoilers, so fans will have to wait and see what unfolds when The Wife returns in November.

The publication adds that Khoza may be replaced it is still unclear at this stage why Khoza has reportedly left the show.

This man is the reason I enjoy Hlomu so much . Yoh wow his talent is out of this world, hai he deserves an award . As for hlala phantsi we Baby Jake . Yoh this Nqoba character is out of this world @Abdul_Khoza . His in a league of his own. #Hlomu #thewife #TheWifeShowmax pic.twitter.com/e83CMXplk9
