According to Independent Media’s Isolezwe newspaper, Bhulose who played Zimele Bhengu on e.tv’s latest drama series 'Imbewu: The Seed' has not shown up to shoot the series for three weeks without any explanation.

Since his disappearance from the set, the production team has been very unhappy with the actor's alleged lack of professionalism.

Grapevine Productions confirmed through e.tv that Bhulose's contract has been terminated.

The channel's spokesperson, Michael Pocock, said: "The absence of Bhulose's character, Ngcolosi 'Zimele' Bhengu, was written into the storyline some time ago, however, the executive producers have since decided to end their relationship with Mr Bhulose."

His departure comes after being on screen for just two months.

The hunky actor was featured alongside veteran actresses Thembi Mtshali-Jones, Leleti Khumalo and former 'Muvhango' actor Raphael Griffiths.

It is not the first time that the actor had been fired from a show, in 2016, rumours of the actor being fired from popular soapie, 'Uzalo' emerged with reports alleging that the actor had been fired by management for repeatedly butting heads with his co-workers and producers.
