Veteran actress Moshidi Motshegwa recently confirmed that her contract on the popular 1Magic telenova "The River" has not renewed, now she's revealed the alleged reason behind her being cut from the show.
During her 702 interview with Azania Mosaka a few weeks ago, Motshegwa who plays Malefu on the hit series spoke highly of her cast and her on-screen children Matshepo Sekgopi and Presley Chweneyagae but did not make any mention of Larona Moagi, who plays Itumeleng, her adopted daughter.
"They are the best cast that I have ever worked with. And I am talking now about (my on screen) family, especially Matshepo le Presley. They held me. It's so wonderful to work with actors that if you give something, they're there with you,” she told Mosaka at the time.
However, during an interview with Drum magazine, the former "Rhythm City" star revealed her character was written off due to feud with Moagi. According to the publication, Motshegwa also had a strained relationship with the show’s executive producer Gwydion Beynon.
“I had gone to meetings with him about the scripts and Gwydion told me to stop being cruel to Larona, Motshegwa told the publication.
