Candice took to social media to share the news. She shared in part: “Truly one of the most bittersweet moments of my career, to actively leave a place I’ve called home.”

She continued: “What started off as 3 months of the antagonizing rebel who eventually won over Lesedi’s friendship, became 3 years of the Lerato Matema coming of age story. Silly crushes, secrets, drug addiction, activism, kidnappings, campaigns, sisterhood, a sense of belonging, struggles with identity and young love.”

Candice also shared that she’ll be taking a break from acting to focus on her business. She shared: “Though I have taken a slight break from acting to focus on my youth skills development company, Busetsa Media, I hope to make a return to theatre, devise my own work, venture into the big screen and all mediums of the arts and storytelling.”

And it’s a wrap!!! 🎬🎬🎬 22/11/2019: Season 28, eps 260 sees the end of my blessed journey on #GenerationsTheLegacy Truly one of the most bittersweet moments of my career, to actively leave a place I’ve called home. What started off as 3 months of the antagonizing rebel who eventually won over Lesedi’s friendship, became 3 years of the Lerato Matema coming of age story. Silly crushes, secrets, drug addiction, activism, kidnappings, campaigns, sisterhood, a sense of belonging, struggles with identity and young love. I’ll use the next few days and posts to thank the people that added colour to Lerato’s black and white world and express my gratitude to the cast and crew that gave me wings to bring the character to life. For now, all I can say is thank you. To the viewers that showed me so much love and support, thank you🙏🏽♥️ It’s been such a blessing to work with some of Africa’s most celebrated storytellers to give rise to this fictional character that the world now knows as ‘Lerato Matema’. So yes, it may be the end of my journey on Generations The Legacy, but it’s the beginning of so many new chapters. I plan on leaving no stone unturned. Though I have taken a slight break from acting to focus on my youth skills development company, Busetsa Media, I hope to make a return to theatre, devise my own work, venture into the big screen and all mediums of the arts and storytelling. …. And…. Scene 🙏🏽 📸: @tatsography_
