Roderick Jaftha, who is best known for his role as Glen Majozi in the local soapie 'Generations' during the late 90s to early 2000s, has found his way back to the small screen after more than a decade.

Before he left the soapie in 2002, his love triangle with Karabo Moroka (Connie Ferguson) and Vivian Majozi (Faye Peters) used to be the highlight of the show.

And it seems fans never expected 'Glen Majozi' to age over the years, as some were left a little shook after his recent appearance as a gangster on eTV's 'Rhythm City'. 

Some of them took to social media to express their shock. One tweep wrote: "#GlenMajozi used to be THEE SAUCE😋 on generations. Just saw him on #RhythmCity - I almost did not recognise him(sic)

While another Twitter user did some research of her own, and seemed pleased with her findings.

Speaking to TshisaLIVE, the actor and director said: "I found it very funny. My niece in Cape Town sent me screenshots of the things people were saying, comparing me to the young man who played Glen Majozi. I'm 54-years-old, so I just sit back and laugh at these things.

Jaftha also said he expected some sort of chatter of after his return "because it comes with the territory".

He added that it's also one the things he dislikes about the industry.

"Of course this is one of the parts I don't really love about my profession but someone once said it is better to be talked about than not. So I take it as it comes, with a lot of giggles."

One can only wonder if this is the "storm" Jaftha was referring to in his 31 October Twitter post. If it was, he certainly called it...
