In the statement, Samkelo shared that she attempted to leave the soapie a year ago. She said in part; “A year ago I attempted to leave Rhythm City and during talks with producers, after even trying a 6 month on 6 month off solution, another co-star who was pivotal as an antagonist in the world of the story confirmed his departure. I was then asked to stay on for one more year, as the show could not lose two villains at once. So I stayed another year.”
She also added that she left the show on good terms sharing; “I served my notice of departure from the show which my producers had already prepared for which made my exit mutual. Myself and Rhythm City part ways on a positive vibration and will always cherish the time.”
